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.

One doesn't actually buy software - one rents software at full retail price.

Oh, yeah. That too. I had forgotten that gem.

Thanks!
