Interesting consumer news from Europe…
“Users of digitally downloaded software can sell it on secondhand, providing they deactivate or delete the original copy from their hard drive, the European Court of Justice has ruled.”
“The ECJ said that software owners exhaust their rights to control the sale of their copyrighted products when they first sell them within the EU, regardless of whether the sale concerns a physical product or one downloaded from the internet.”
This presumably includes DAZ Studio or Poser content models. Tired of that cute “Fluffy the Cat” character? Burn it to a DVD, uninstall it, and it seems you can now legally sell the DVD. Only the one time, though. This legal ruling (by the EU equivalent of the U.S. Supreme Court) would seemingly also allow a relative to legally ‘gift’ or ‘bequeath’ their entire 3D content and software collection to their relatives, on their death.
Carrara 8 is DAZ Studio's official 'big sister' software.
Carrara loads all DAZ and Poser characters and scenes,
and supports LuxRender for top-quality realistic rendering.
