Happy New Year Michael (CDSM),
I totally get your point. I think we
(the buyers of programs) don't speak about re-selling or re-distributing the products. Instead just talking of a license transfer. If the dev's would all include a "register here
", "log into your account
" and "your (always accessable) downloads
" sections (with all data inside the account), everything would be "managed" by the developer (the library would have to be downloaded by the new buyer - No re-distribution by seller). In case of a transfer, the seller would contact the dev, who then could transfer the old email/user to a new one. As someone said, a 5$ (or higher for more expensive libraries) transfer fee would still be "something" for the dev.
Now, that the topic has been brought up, I imagine that it could
influence the next buy for some of us... (Think more than twice before buying)
In no way I'm trying to convince, just bring up the point of view by a customer
last thing: about "you could sell but still keep the product"..well, yes...that's with EVERY software product out there. Everything I ever bought and then sold was kindly asked to be removed from my computer by the developer and guess what: I removed them each time (maybe a few days/weeks later...after finishing projects which included the plugin).
