In Reply to: Just bought Rosetta Stone second hand AHHH! posted by Chris in WI on March 20, 2009 at 8:36 pm:

When you purchase Rosetta Stone software, you are purchasing a license to use the software, you do not own the software. Since the license is nontransferable, you cannot resell the software when you are done with it.

Here is an excerpt from the link below, directly from Rosetta Stone:

“Can I sell my used Rosetta Stone Software?”

Reselling a used copy of Rosetta Stone would be an infringement of our copyright. Rosetta Stone software is licensed, not sold. A buyer purchases a license to install and use the program, not to sell Rosetta Stone software. These terms are set out in the End user License Agreement, which prohibits distribution to a third party.

“If I can sell a used copy of a book, why can’t I sell this software?”

Unlike a book, software must be supported by Rosetta Stone. Your license purchase entitles you to the ongoing skilled services of our customer support staff. We make this costly investment to serve our licensees while using the best language learning software being sold today.

“I bought this exact item from eBay. Why was that not a problem when the seller was selling it?”

It was not a problem provided the seller was Fairfield Language Technologies, the owner of Rosetta Stone copyright, or an authorized reseller. Otherwise it was a problem because your seller was infringing our copyright. There are two primary ways copyright may be violated. One is by making or selling a counterfeit copy. If your set was not a “complete version,” i.e.. did not have the User’s Guide, Curriculum Text, and original box, it is very likely a counterfeit copy even though it might look original to you. The other way a copyright may be violated is by sale or distribution without authorization by the owner of the copyright.

“What if I have a new, unused, unopened copy of Rosetta Stone software? Can I sell it on eBay?”

This would be an unauthorized sale in violation of our copyright, unless you are an authorized seller.
