Microsoft released licensing and pricing for it’s new Rental License options recently. These additional license fee(s) wave the restrictions in the End User License Agreement (EULA) and allows for multiple people to access the software. This will help protect and legitimize internet cafes and the newly formed computer rental options available today.
Microsoft’s website describes it as follows: “Windows desktop operating system and Microsoft Office system licenses do not permit renting, leasing, or outsourcing the software to a third party…Rental Rights are a simple way for organizations to get a waiver of these licensing restrictions through a one-time license transaction valid for the term of the underlying software license or life of the PC.”
They are currently offering an introductory discount of 30% off of the normal pricing.
