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.

Already being done on Warezstore, they provide copies under the premise that you are already licensed but only buying it as an archived copy or to replace lost software.

Of course as it comes with the keys or other unlock tools that kind of rips that defense.
