AutoCAD : It's not yours..

You only pay for a license to use it, not a license to sell it, so say the makers of AutoCAD and their In-Court buddies.

Remember folks, if you bought it on eBay, it's probably not yours.

It really doesn't surprise me. It's not that you don't own it, it's that you can't give the license to others. This is agreed by you when you purchase it.

It might sound harsh, but big companies that produce high-end expensive products like Sun Microsystems have been decimated by the second hand market. Sun never really recovered from the .com bubble because of this.

Bah. To be completely honest, I hate Autodesk.
Their products are great, and I wouldn't mind 'em if they could let companies alone!!
But noooo... they insist on buying up every single company that ever made a modelling software that sold more than 100 copies. Then they bump up the prices to pay for their giant marketing campaign so they can get another startup wannabe-Disney company to shell out for their latest acquisition.
Next thing you know, they'll buy up Blender!!

In fact I am so pissed with Autodesk that I've promised myself to try to teach myself Blender after this month's 11 Second Club compo has ended.
If I manage to get stuff going in Blender I'll make my movie in it....
