Legal Let's do a little trip down memory lane. We're talking the '80s, early '90s, and we're looking at a company called Borland, which produced several well-known and popular products related to software development. Back in those days, Borland had an end user license agreement. However, contrary to the EULAs we know and despise today, Borland's 'No-Nonsense License Statement' was a whole lot simpler, and in fact, is a perfect example of how software should be treated.

"treat it like a book" now. The software companies will just point to e-books on Kindle as an example then delete your copy.

By the way, I prefer paper books over their electronic counterparts any day.
