From the AutoCad EULA: "the license to use this software is perpetual" for an individual.
Updates/Upgrades available with active contracts. This does not mean that if you do not have an ongoing contract that you cannot use the software.
Get a clue. Get real and stop making LAME comments!
Technically, if you don't have an 'ongoing' contract, the EULA can be rewritten to state that you can't use the software. And you don't even have to see it.
Yes, get a clue, it's not rocket surgery.
Actually, the EULA I quoted states that yes, you do have the right to use the software whenever you would like to and that, no, you do NOT have to have an ongoing contract in order to do so. You will not get any updates, but you can use your software.
The reason for my quoting a portion of this Autodesk EULA was to show you that even for a draconian company like Autodesk, the EULA on their software is in no way comparable to buying a plane ticket as you erroneously suggested.
Drop the rockets, you got burned.
