Out-of-use or never used software licenses amount to dead capital that, however, can be activated rapidly and easily by selling to Relicense.

A transaction process that is transparent for all concerned – and that, of course, directly involves the software manufacturer as well – acts as a safeguard for 100 percent legal compliance.
