We're attempting to purchase a product from ANSYS. Their license agreement includes a clause that basically says that if your company changes ownership, you have to renegotiate/repurchase the license from them. You don't own the license, just a 'right to use'. We've gotten some clarification from them, but not a lot, and its the first time I've run into this.
Has anyone actually had to deal with the triggering of this clause and what did it mean? Has anyone seen this kind of heavy-handed licensing in other products?
