chown does not work unless you are root

chown does not work when yo own a file and want to give it to another user
Called the support line and he duplicated it and told me to report it here.
I need a resolution ASAP.
Being able to give a file to another user is a potential security
risk because it can be used to circumvent disk quotas.
So what is the fix...
How do I change ownership..?
You need to do it as root. There is no workaround.
