Software licensing - purchase should be made by operator or main company?
Posted on 2016-11-29
HI - a general question on software licensing.
Main company owns the building and the business profits go to it etc, but they have a separate company running the day to day running of the business.
They need to replace the computer system, and this includes Operating Systems, databases etc.
Basic question is; should the software for the new system be purchased and registered to the overall business, or to the business that actually uses it on a day to day basis? In other words, is there a difference between software owner and software user?
Thanks for advice on this.
