Nonetheless, named user as-per ADSK licensing agreement means: 1 license for each individual using the software, seat sharing or license sharing is not allowed.
If we are going to cook up unique, corner-case scenarios (I have 4 shifts and different programmers on each shift who hot seat a single license!), then perform Talmudic readings of software licenses... How about we acknowledge the elephant in the room vis-a-vis the perpetual license?
You have almost no rights!
You can't sell that perpetual license. Once you spend your $25k on MC/SW? That money is gone.
Reading the MC license, it isn't even an asset on the balance sheet that transfers under an ownership change of the business (or at the very least, they make that point very very murky).
You all like to constantly make hardware comparisons - "I own this car and I can get in and drive it anytime I want!"... Yea? You can also sell the damn car. It may be a depreciating asset, but it is an asset you can at least extract some capital from. Not a software license!
If you can't sell a thing, you don't own it. Period.
Worse off - the license provides zero obligation to support you outside of additional, temporary contracts. Off maintenance and you lose your key? Tough. Your node lock fails because of a component failure on your CAD station? Tough. You lose everything in a fire? Tough.
