You Have Rights - Unless Not Stated

November 7, 2007 – 12:43 pm

peanutsfairHuh?  You have rights unless not stated is the truth in licensing as eloquently explained by Eric Ligman in this blog.  I really appreciate Eric explaining the obvious truth that many choose to overlook when it comes to software migration rights.  Quote from Eric’s blog:

Remember, EULAs tell you what rights you do have, they don?t list all of the rights you don?t have. I mention this because I have had people make the comment of, ?I don?t see anywhere in the EULA that says I can?t do?? That statement is completely irrelevant.

Be sure to read his blog in it’s entirety before you go advising a customer on moving licenses from box to box.
