  1. Hi

    Please contact me about ths topic, I need 1 or 2 license to protel 99se.

  2. Rene,
    Same comments I posted 4 weeks ago to another P99SE license enquiry.
    Actually, I now see that post was also you. I have never noticed you post to
    the PEDA forum. I may have missed it or just deleted it and don't recall. It
    would be your absolute best bet but I wouldn't hold my breath.

    As you would have seen in the protel-user-resale Yahoo forum, serveral
    similar enquiries and no responses. About 4 - 5 years ago now, when Altium
    introduced DXP/AD, there was a run on P99SE licenses being resold between
    professional users that didn't want to upgrade to the new software. Since
    that time there have been virtually no licenses resales amongst the forum
    participants. The main reason for this is that Altium changed their
    licensing agreements making resale of licenses illegal (or so their EULA
    tries to claim). So anybody that purchased P99SE in approx. 2002 or upgraded
    can no longer sell their licenses. Anybody that upgraded cannot sell older
    version licenses. So there are virtually no legal/legitimate licenses

    I've heard that Courts have ruled in a Business being sold with its assets
    that Software (and Licences) *can* be sold. No matter what the EULA trys to

    Don't know the details or even if is true.

  4. Robert,
    The controversial issues surrounding EULAs and different jurisdictions
    is why I stated "...or so their EULA tries to claim...".

    Similarly you can't claim such EULAs have been overturned the courts.
    What courts? Where? Which province/state? Which country? Rene is posting
    from Denmark, the Netherlands or somewhere thereabouts. Was it a Danish
    court you are talking about? Just demonstrating some of the subtlies you are
    overlooking when you made your blanket statement.

    The EULA usually states a country and legal system which 'should'
    prevail over their EULA. Even that is not guaranteed when it comes to
    international recognition of law.

    Thanks for more of the context.
