Hi there,

Is it possible at all to buy resources from others? For example if I'd like to get libronix version of a commentary set from a friend. Is it possible in light of the UELA?

 

thx

As I understand it, you are allowed to buy L resources from the current registered owner in the same packaging-bundles that they were originally supplied

You must contact L customer service to get the license transferred, and there is a onetime fee for that transfer ... I think they said it was ten or twenty dollars.

However you cannot break up bundled sets and sell them off, since the licensing has been negotiated specifically for the bundle.

So if you have a resource in a downloadable version, is it possible to get a CD (like pay $5 or something) to have it shipped to you? I feel like a fool for downloading ANY resources if something happens to me and my wife tries to give away or sell Libronix resources that she COULD have resold, but can't because I thought downloading was just as good as shipping, except even better because I save Logos the CD & shipping charge and let them spend it developing more resources! I guess not...

same thing here. I am following another thread that says you CAN transfer downloadable resources. So there are conflicting ideas here at logos.

 

this page says you CANNOT transfer downloadable resources

http://www.logos.com/support/lbs/faq#transferlicenses

 

however on this forum Bob says you CAN transfer downloadable resources

http://community.logos.com/forums/t/87.aspx?PageIndex=5

 

I've emailed dave@logos.com to clarify. He's the academic sales representative. Will let you know what he says. I am hoping the information on FAQ is outdated

It's possible to get CDs of all of the Resources (plus Libronix) with the exception of the 3rd party offerings (such as WBC or Hermeneia-- I would also suppose that would include those "life works" volumes if you really feel compelled to order them.) unless something has changed.  Rather than ordering the individual resources on disk I would recommend ordering the whole enchillada.  What am I saying?  They didn't have enchilladas in Moses' day.  Wink

It's simple. Call customer support and tell them what you want to do. They will know the options. I'm confident L will treat you fairly. I doubt you will be required to get a cd - but ALL my purch's have been cd's. ;-)

do you have to pay anything in addition to shipping on the cds?

 

I just got a reply from Dave. You CAN transfer downloadable resources. I asked him to update the faq page so no one else may be mislead
