We will buy your Softwarelicenses!

The licensing jungle often makes it difficult to identify unnecessary licenses. That’s because of the variety of contract types, product names, basic licenses, and much more.

Our process, which has been tried and tested by SAM Consultants enables you to sell your licenses efficiently and securely. The commercial and legal processes involved in license transfers are checked by accountants, trustees, and specialist lawyers. Our ERP system has been certified by TÜV according to ISO 27001.

We consistently implement all supreme judge requirements for trading in used software licenses. We guarantee in writing: We consistently implement all the most stringent requirements for trading in used software licenses. Reliable, discreet and trustworthy.

We always take full responsibility for our actions.

Who we are

We are one of the leading European dealers in used software licenses, with branches in Switzerland, Austria, and Germany.

Your right

The European Court of Justice (ECJ) clarified the legal situation in a decision handed down in 2012 (ECJ, Judgment C-128/11 of 3 July 2012) and subsequent judgements from the German Federal Court (BGH, Judgment I ZR 129/08, of 17 July 2013 and BGH, Judgment I ZR 8/13 of 11 December 2014), and in accordance with Swiss case law (Canton court – KG Zug, ES 2010 822, Executive Order of 4 May 2011), which stated that used software could be resold, regardless of how it was purchased, without requiring permission from the manufacturer.

Provisions of a license agreement that prohibit a subsequent sale are invalid.

For you as the vendor, it is important to check which licenses, and in which quantity you can trade. Don‘t sell too few, but most importantly, don‘t sell too many!

Make sure, from the outset, that your licenses are not only sold at good conditions, but also in a sustainable and legally secure manner in compliance with legal requirements and taking into account legitimate manufacturer interests.

We will get it done for you! That ́s a service promise!
