LaFrance on Distinguishing between Sales and Licenses of Software
Response or Comment
As digital media overtake more traditional publication means, disputes over the distinction between sales and licenses of copyrighted materials are more frequent.

Mary LaFrance discusses the new test created in Vernor v. Autodesk and its implications.
