Although licensing agreements must be prepared with the help of lawyers and IP professionals, some important IP clauses must be negotiated and incorporated before the agreement is signed. Thank you for choosing Microsoft Office 2013. This is a licensing agreement between you and Microsoft Corporation (or, depending on where you live, one of its related companies) that describes your rights to use Office 2013 software. For your convenience, we have divided this agreement into two parts. The first part contains introductory terms; follow the additional conditions and the restricted warranty and contain more details. You should review the entire agreement, including all related conditions, as all conditions are important and together establish this contract that applies to you. You can check related terms by inserting the redirect link into your browser window. The additional conditions include a binding arbitration clause and the waiver of the group action. If you live in the U.S., these affect your rights to settle a dispute with Microsoft, and you should read them carefully. A common criticism of end-user licensing contracts is that they are often far too long for users to spend time reading them carefully. In March 2012, the PayPal end-user license agreement was 36,275 words and in May 2011, the iTunes agreement was 56 pages long.  The sources of information that reported these results stated that the vast majority of users do not read the documents because of their length.
For software in general, contact the manufacturer or installer for support options. Refer to the support number provided by the software. For updates and supplements directly provided by Microsoft, Microsoft can provide limited support services, as described in support.microsoft.com/common/international.aspx. If you use software that is not properly authorized, you are not entitled to support services. 1. Third-party programs . The software may contain third-party programs that Microsoft, not the third party, you are authorized to under this agreement. Advice, if any, for the third-party program is included only for your information. 3. Use in a virtualized environment. If you use virtualization software, including the client hyper-v, to create one or more virtual computers on a single computer hardware system, each virtual computer and physical computer are considered a separate computer for the purposes of this agreement.
With this license, you can only install a copy of the software used on a computer, whether it is a physical or virtual computer. If you want to use the software on more than one computer, you need to get separate copies of the software and a separate license for each copy. Content protected by digital rights management technology or other encryption technologies for full-volume hard drives may be less secure in a virtualized environment. What happens if Microsoft violates part of this agreement? If you have a basis to recover damages to Microsoft, you can only recover direct damages up to the amount you paid for the software. They must not recover any other damages, including consequential damage, loss of profits, special, indirect or accidental damage.
