The EULA is a contract.  If the EULA states you can't move a license and 
you accept this term, well, you accepted the contract between you and 
the software maker, and you have to comply with the terms...  I think 
this is what I call a __legal__ opinion...

Please note that I don't wan't to start a flame war here... I won't 
argue any more on the subject.  Just that I don't like that people say I 
don't know what I'm talking about.  In fact, when I don't know on a 
subject, I don't answer to the thread.

I think this thread is getting more and more off-topic now... As I said, 
I won't post to this thread again...
