Who owns the 6?

If we’re talking about the nickname for Toronto, some people might say Drake owns it — he popularized, after all, it starting in the summer of 2014 — but others might say we all own it, since it caught on so widely. If we’re talking about the city, some might still say Drake owns it, in a manner of speaking, but most would probably agree we citizens own it together.

But what if we’re talking about the number? Who owns that, and the right to use it? If that’s the question, most people might say, “Whaaaaaaa?” How can you own a number?
