Software vendors can no longer object to a second-hand market in their programs within the EU when their licences amount to a “first sale” – regardless of whether or not the licence says it cannot be assigned without consent. This means that they face the loss of licence fees from customers who buy through the second hand market. This session explains the scope and the impact of the European Court’s decision in the UsedSoft case and explores the ways in which businesses can mitigate its effects.
