Fair Use Discussions

from the oh-this-again? dept

I’ve seen a bunch of these articles in the last few weeks. It’s suddenly popular again to point out the oddities of software licensing. I’m not exactly sure what the point of the article is, other than to bring up the same question people have been asking for ages: If I buy a software product, how come I can’t turn around and sell it? I think it is good, though, that some of these articles are finally hitting the mainstream press – suggesting that consumers may be getting sick of ridiculous licensing policies forced upon them by software companies.
