Microsoft Software License Terms
User Rights Granted by Microsoft
Write a paragraph defining the rights of the user in Microsoft’s EULA. Your paragraph must include what rights the user has to use, copy, and install the software. Can you sell or transfer the software to someone else? On how many devices may you install the software?
Microsoft’s EULA states that the user has the right to install 1 copy of the software on 1 computer to be used by one person at a time. One cannot sell the software. They can however transfer it with seemingly strict guidelines. They may do so directly on a licensed computer with a COA. The user may reassign this software license to a different computer any number of times, but not more than one time every 90 days. You may not retain any copies.
