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.

OMG are people really this thick? DRM has nothing to do with copyright law, nor this ruling. It is not about how easily you could get busted. It is still illegal to sell something you do not own anymore. It is also illegal to maintain a copy of it after selling it, How likely you are to get caught has nothing to do with it.
