How does the EU software resell ruling affect Oracle users?

On the new permissible reselling of licensing in the EU….Miro is saying:

“While I am not sure this will ever be allowed in North America by Oracle Corporation, I can say that even if it is allowed, the acquiring company would likely be required to sign off on a new OLSA (oracle licensing software agreement) which would govern the terms of the newly acquired licenses. I am quite certain Oracle would not allow a simple transfer of negotiated terms and conditions. What companies need to remember is that you do not ‘buy’ the software licenses, you buy the right to use the licenses in a specific way and according to very specific terms and conditions. So, the devil is the in details of the software license agreement.”
