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'd be worried that no one in Europe could protect their land or be protected by deed restrictions based on this ruling. The same concept that protects a buyer and seller or real estate also is the basis for this case. One now could say that deed restrictions can not be enforced so a pig farm or condo project could be put in next to your dream home. Good going Europe!

What the f*ck are you babbling about? Selling real estate or land has absolutely nothing to do with EULAs or copyrights, and besides, there's plenty of laws regarding how and where one can build stuff.

Can you please explain how are these things even remotely related?
