Consignment Software Ownership
Your payment to a software vendor may only purchase the right to use the program. This is a 'software license'. You do not own the software.
If you choose the right software you will own your copy of the software and have lifetime use of it..
This aspect of consignment software does not escape exploitation and manipulation. Here are a couple of ways vendors dodge this issue:
- Web-based software has no 'ownership'. It ceases to work when monthly payment stops. There is no 'one-time payment for lifetime use'.
- Wilson at says "Yes!" when asked if his software can be resold. Tucked away somewhere hard to find is this condition: 'The software can only be sold with a business and the new owner must continue to use the same store name, same location and address, same telephone number.' Since that rarely happens, the honest answer to "Can I resell this software?" is "Not likely."
