1
Microsoft OEM Licensing An Overview
2
OEM Licensing
  • The purpose of this presentation is to provide an
    overview of the role that OEM plays in the
    Microsoft licensing model. In this module, we
    look at
  • who is eligible
  • what they deliver
  • what the customer can expect
  • the intricacies between volume licensing and OEM
  • how this applies to each different type of
    customer

3
OEM Licensing
  • Positioning
  • OEM Software Licensing
  • Software Assurance (SA)
  • Support
  • End-User Deliverables
  • OEM Licences and Volume Licensing
  • Product road map
  • Summary

4
Positioning
  • OEM Licences provide customers with a complete
    solution as the software is pre-installed
  • Offers substantial savings over FPP
  • Must be sold with new hardware (bundling) and
    never separated from that hardware (no
    unbundling)
  • Most convenient and attractive way for acquiring
    your desktop operating system
  • BUT...
  • Limited product portfolio
  • Non-transferable
  • Restricted use rights (e.g. downgrade)
  • Mandatory pre-installation

5
What is The Role of The Microsoft OEM Team?
  • Responsible for Microsoft's relationships with PC
    and Device manufacturers around the world
  • Organised into 2 teams
  • Multinational (e.g. Dell, HP, IBM etc)
  • Local/national (e.g. In UK they include Time,
    Research Machines, Compusys etc)
  • Main Focus
  • Windows
  • Applications
  • Design Wins Server and Devices

6
Who Can Buy OEM Licence?
  • Direct OEM via direct agreement
  • Multinational Account
  • Named Account
  • Via OEM Authorised Distribution Partners
  • System Builders

7
What does a System Builder need to Purchase?
  • When buying an OEM desktop operating system
    licence, must purchase with the following
  • Fully assembled PC
  • OR
  • Non-peripheral hardware device

8
OEM Software Portfolio
  • Windows desktop operating systems
  • Distributed with a fully assembled PC or
    non-peripheral hardware component
  • Microsoft Office? Small Business Edition, Office
    Professional, Works, Works Suite, Small Business
    Server CALs, Windows Server CALs
  • Distributed with a fully assembled system only
  • List is non-exhaustive

9
End User Licensing Agreement
  • Stipulates the terms of use by which the user can
    use the software
  • Customer is buying the right to use the software
    they are not buying the software!

10
OEM EULA Downgrade Rights
  • Only Windows XP Professional and Windows 2003
    Server have downgrade rights
  • Conditions Apply
  • Cannot transfer spare copy onto another machine
  • Customer must provide the media for downgrade
  • No support for downgrade (MS or OEM!)
  • Cannot downgrade across languages
  • When customer goes back to Windows XP Pro they
    must delete other OS

11
Optional Software Assurance
  • Available for OEM versions of
  • Windows XP Professional
  • Server programs
  • Office Professional 2003 and Office Small
    Business Edition 2003
  • Must be acquired within 90 days of the OEM
    Licensing purchase
  • Purchase of SA does not give Volume Licensing
    usage rights to the OEM Licences (except for
    Office)

12
Software Support
  • Support for all OEM licenced products is provided
    by the hardware assembler, not Microsoft
  • This is stipulated in the system builder licence
    (attached to the side of the system builder
    pack)
  • Value of OEM providing end-user support justifies
    lower pricing for OEM software

13

    drive)

    recognise a PC supplied with genuine software

    to supply counterfeit software, covered by a
    loose COA genuine (stolen) COA label
