Has anyone heard of the phrase "perpetual license?" A purchasing agent at my company has asked me to include the following in a license with a vendor: For the period set forth on the order form (the "Term") [a 12 month term September 2001 to September 2002], <Vendor Name> grants to <Customer> for the Term, a non-exclusive, worldwide, non-transferrable, perpetual license to use the Data and the Software ... When I asked her to further define "perpetual license," she sent me this definition: -as per our attorney, "as opposed to having a finite term (eg 10 or 15 yrs), a perpetual license has an infinite term into perpetuity." This is preferred as we have the right to use (as long as we pay per the terms of the agreement) without a limit on the license. I don't know all the details but the term of the agreement is different from the term or life of the license. Has anyone heard of this before? Possibly it is used more with software licensing than with information resources.
