So the latest buzz is about Microsoft’s licensing quiz for its channel partners. What a clever way to drive licensing sales and assert their software compliance rights. In fact, that’s exactly what I told Kevin McLaughlin, our reporter friend at CMP in his January 28 article “Microsoft Tests Partners’ Licensing Knowledge.”
Software licensing is a complex enough issue. The quiz serves as a tool to help channel partners uncover how much they don’t know about licensing and gets the point across……………….the point being about software compliance rights of the vendor and the client.
