SQL CAL reassignment

Does any one have any official Microsoft documentation that you can only reassign a SQL User CAL from one user to another once every 90 days?  I found official documentation for Windows Server CAL's and SharePoint CAL's, but nothing for SQL.

Thank you!
Jim

The information is in the Product Use Rights document at this location: http://www.microsoftvolumelicensing.com/DocumentSearch.aspx?Mode=3&DocumentTypeId=1

Page 9 of the Jan 2012 version describes license reassignment, The section is part of Universal Terms that applies to all products with a Server/CAL licensing model.

Thank you!  It doesn't specifically address SQL user CAL's (I don't think anything does), but I am certain it will work to convince my customer that he cannot simply reassign CAL's as external users come and go on the network.  THANK YOU!

Thanks for the points.

I would add that the document does specifically address SQL Server. Page 4 states that "Universal License Terms apply to every product licensed through Microsoft Volume Licensing (except where specifically noted in the General License Terms and/or Product-Specific License Terms)."

The info on page 9 regarding CALs is part of the Universal License Terms.

Page 39 (Servers/CALs) which includes SQL Server references the Universal License Terms.

I see...  Okay, that is great.  Universal Licensing Terms apply.  Got it!  Thanks again!
