Re: New License language - what meaning?

The change in language means nothing since the license, whether it is called 'agreement,' 'contract,' 'letter of understanding,' 'purchase order,' or whatever is still a legally binding contract, thus 'licensee' and 'subscriber' are essentially the same term since they indicate the entity who is the recipient of the goods which the vendor is offering.

Dear All:

One of our major providers/publishers for STM products sent me
the 2008 renewal License Agreement and I noticed that they
replaced the terms license, licensees, etc. with Subscription.
Subscribers, etc. Do you have any idea about this change in the
language used in the agreement?
