A UK firm claims to have found a loophole in Microsoft license agreements that will create a market for second hand software licenses.
A software license in theory is between you and the developer, meaning that you can't just sell your license to someone else. But Microsoft's license agreement has a loophole for bulk licenses at bankrupt companies: those are up for grabs.
So Discount-licensing.com has started to scout bankruptcy auctions for software licenses and has now opened the doors of its web store.
A version of Windows NT gets you a nice 50 per cent discount over what you'd pay a reseller, the store claims, with more recent Microsoft products discounted by at least 20 per cent.
