Re: Obtaining licenses for old software

Trading in old software being a prohibition here was a major contributing factor for me starting my own forum. I understand nobody here wanting to deal with the liability. That's a choice, but I think for such a software oriented hobby it is a huge barrier to entry that should have sort of public c...
