Hello and a warm welcome to the Campaign for Clear Licensing blog!

We have received great feedback and support for our manifesto so far but we would love to hear more.

Please download the manifesto and provide us with your opinions.

Please either contact us or use this form to provide feedback.

Formal plans for our Campaign will be released over the coming months. In the meantime I would like to share a couple of quick developments.

Firstly, we published an article on Computer Weekly entitled ‘How Adobe Creative Cloud will impact budgets’.

“Adobe is replacing its traditional Creative Suite perpetual licensing model with a cloud-based subscription model. Is it fair, is it cost-effective?”

Read the full article here and read an interesting thread on the ITAM Review LinkedIn group here.

Giving Business Software Buyers a Voice

Secondly, one of the key principles of the Campaign for Clear Licensing is providing the buyers of software a voice in the industry. With this in mind I am pleased to announce that Fiona Miller has joined the team as our Press and Media coordinator.

Fiona’s role is to ensure our voice is heard in the IT press and to amplify the opinion of our members. To share your opinions on software licensing – publicly or privately – please contact us.

  1. The as yet unpublished ISO 19770-3 standard aims to provide a mechanism for the clear and unambiguous encapsulation of entitlements in a standardized format.

    I suggest that anyone interested in this topic contact the ISO Working Group (WG21) which is creating this standard. 19770-3 is nearing completion.

    I am on the Working Group and can help provide you with more details if you’d like to find out more.

    Regards,

  2. Thanks Jason. One of our key principles is that software license programs should be ‘manageable’. Encouraging software suppliers to adopt tags is part of the solution but will not solve the wider issues at play in the market.
