Strictly speaking, the term “used software” is misleading, because software consists of bits and bytes and therefore cannot wear out. In this case, used only means that the software is not used for the first time and comes directly from the manufacturer. Apart from that it is like new. That’s one of the advantages of used software!
Definitely yes. Trading in used software is legal throughout Europe. On July 3, 2012, the European Court of Justice ruled as follows: “A software manufacturer cannot oppose the resale of its “used” licenses allowing the use of its programs downloaded from the Internet (…) even if the license agreement stipulates a subsequent sale Prohibited.” More detailed information can also be found on our page “Legal basis for used software”.
We only buy from trusted sources who need us to confirm that the software is no longer in use.
We check the disks to make sure they are in good condition and readable.
We also check whether the software has been registered with the manufacturer and carry out a legally compliant license transfer.
With these three steps, perfect use is possible in your company!
Depending on the type of license you have ordered, you will receive:
- Original license keys or serial numbers (MAK and KMS)
- Data of the original owner, contract information and notice of deletion
- optional: data carrier (if applicable or ordered)
- Invoice and delivery note
Even with second-hand software, you retain the rights of the first buyer. If the used version is an update-entitled version, you also retain the right to purchase an update. The situation is similar with maintenance.
It is advisable to only buy used software from reputable providers who have been on the market for several years.
Software ReUse has been transferring used software licenses since 2011 – without objection from the software manufacturers. We disclose all documents that you need according to the ECJ ruling of 2012.
Companies are often audited by software manufacturers. In order to avoid expensive costs for subsequent licensing or even legal problems, correct licensing is essential.
It’s a good idea to sell used software to dealers who already have a lot of expertise in this complex area.
Have you switched to the Microsoft rental model? Software ReUse pays top prices for the software licenses you no longer need. Even if you have taken advantage of the Upgrade from Software Assurance rebate, you may legally sell your licenses. Contact our team to get an assessment of your license holdings.
