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.

Otherwise, I could just go buy the latest version of Photoshop, make myself a copy, sell the original on Ebay, and keep using the copy I made.


That would be illegal and if you got caught you'd be liable for criminal charges.
