Software Licencing – WSJ

An article on the legal issues surrounding the sale and licencing of software: “We’re just making a one-time royalty payment for a perpetual license to use this software. You see, each program in this box is distributed under a license agreement. According to that agreement, we’re not buying copies of the software, we’re just getting a license to use it, subject, of course, to various restrictions, including restrictions on resale.”
