Well Water

A farmer and his neighbor once went to Emperor Ming’s court with a complaint.
“Your Majesty, I bought a well from him,” said the farmer pointing to his neighbor, “and now he wants me to pay for the water.”
“That’s right, Your Majesty,” said the neighbor. “I sold him the well but not the water!”
The Emperor pondered for few moments and then responded.

How did Ming solve the dispute?
