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.

A legal agreement that extends beyond the sale


And pray tell, do these deeds often prohibit you from selling the real estate that you own? No? Didn't think so.
Even if it did it's irrelevant though. Deeds are contracts entered into by two parties and no contracts exist when you purchase consumer shelf products. (No, EULAs are not contracts).
