Legal In the Used Soft GmbH v. Oracle International Corp. case, the Court of Justice of the EU ruled today that it is okay to resell software, regardless of clauses in the software license. This is a pretty big deal, and further affirms that a software license is not necessarily binding. Great news for European consumers.

I think it is wrong (though not necessarily illegal) for publishers to deny fair use rights using DRM.

I never said anything about rightness or wrongness of that so I do not see what you're disagreeing with me about. I only said that it is not illegal or in violation of this ruling for software to employ DRM and therefore be unable to be resold, and that is a fact, nothing you can disagree with.
