“EULA” is short for the End-User-License Agreement, in German: End-user licensing agreement. These are contractual terms between a software provider and a person regarding the use of software (or other digital product). These terms of the contract govern above all the extent to which the person uses the product and what he cannot do with him (especially not: brigandage, cracks, decompilations and other stupid stuff). Do you want to add a word, phrase or translation? So how do we implement this concept in a legally specific way? We believe that if an end-user agreement contains invalid provisions, the end customer is not obligated to comply. In addition, software buyers have the opportunity to go to consumer centres in case of questionable or unfair regulation within the ECJ. They accept applications and carry out consultative activities. In addition, they have the opportunity to take legal action against violations of consumer law or the illegal provisions of a ECJ. Cease-and-destable actions may force software manufacturers to continue to use end-user licenses that do not comply with the law. In Germany, software users have the right to copy a program to guarantee future use. Therefore, a CLA should not prohibit the end customer from producing security copies. As a general rule, prohibitions on reselling legally acquired software are also ineffective.
This also applies to OEM software, which can be resold in isolation from the sale of the hardware by the end customer. Other invalid provisions relate to the improper limitation of the guarantee or the power to modify the ECJ`s contractual terms at will after the licensing agreement has been concluded. Unfortunately, ECJ regulations should not be considered in general. On a case-by-case basis, courts may give rise to differing judgments on the validity of the provisions. Do you work with the “CLA” which is not really one? Do you think what your competitor is doing legally will be correct? An end-user license agreement, including the end-user licensing agreement, abbreviated EULA (by the end user license agreement) is a special license agreement designed to govern the use of software. Texts with a CLA are often displayed at the beginning of the software installation. There are many examples of invalid regulations within a CJE. Courts often have to decide on the validity of certain provisions. Depending on the software, the country and the specific requirements, the rules must be reviewed on a case-by-case basis and do not allow for a generalization of their validity.
The following examples may, in certain circumstances, be ineffective provisions of an end-user licensing agreement: the abbreviation EULA refers to the End User Licence Agreement and refers to a licensing agreement between the end user and the manufacturer of a software product. The ECJ accepts the end user if, for example, before using the software, it confirms the posted text of the End User License Agreement. As a result, many manufacturers display CTAs before the software is installed and require the user`s active consent. In this case, the software cannot be installed and used without its consent.
