OEM (Product / License)
OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) means that the license was originally created for a complete system. For example, you will always find complete systems at large discounters such as Aldi - but even if you enter the next technology market such as Currys or PC World, PCs with pre-installed Windows and Office software will be offered to you. But even if an OEM license was originally intended for a certain complete system, the resale of these licenses is permitted in Germany as long as the OEM license has been deactivated by the first user - and that's what we at Lizenzking.de take care of in advance! Both the European Court of Justice and the Federal Court of Justice have officially confirmed this in 2012 and 2013. An OEM license is interesting for you if you only want to equip one computer with new software. You can read more about this in our blog.
