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.

They are the same. A legal agreement that extends beyond the sale. That is the very basis of a deed restriction. What do you think protects a deed restriction? It is an agreement formed at the time of sale. It continues on to any other sale. It can't get any more simple than that.


No, when you sell real estate/land/etc. you actually sign paperwork. EULA != paperwork. You do not sign anything when you buy most forms of software. That is one clear difference between these, something that should be ridiculously obvious. Secondly, real estate/land/etc. are not shelf products, something that should be just as obvious.
