A company in Europe has temporarily given some of its computers with licensed Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Premium to a company in Asia. The European company is the client of the Asian company and the software is used for developing a web application for the client.
Microsoft now insists the Asian company is making unauthorized use of the licensed software because the licenses are country specific and geographically limited.
Microsoft now demands a separate purchase of the licenses by the Asian company; just uninstalling isn't good enough. This will cost $5999 per user.
Can licenses really be this limiting?
I edited my old question, because it was seeking specific legal advice. I hope its fine now.
