Umm, you never did have that license, then, and you used the software
in an unauthorized manner. In short, you used a pirate copy.

I understand the situation completely. You apparently do not.

If he created (as he said) his *own* files using those tools,
and not those of his employer, then he used a pirate copy.

I am morally certain that the EULA did not include a clause like
"You are permitted to let other people who do not have a license
use this software, for their own purposes, so long as you do not
charge them, and they also use this software for you for your own

See my other message.


Mike, as I explained in another message, I used the software legally. If I would continue using the program on an other computer without paying for a new licence, I would use it illegally, but I don't.

In Europe it is against the law to publicly make statements about others that are not true. So, it's you who has broken the law.

I consider it a strong offence of you to publicly claim that I would have broken the law.

I would kindly ask you
- to clarify your statement on the list, and admit that you have no evidence that I ever broke the law or any EULA etc.

- to stop spreading false information about me, including information about me breaking the law/EULA in this special case.
