    I would approach it from the other side.

    The old version of AutoCAD gives the original owner rights to use
the upgrade version. If they sell their old version then they no longer
have rights to the upgrade version. It's like they rented a movie from
Blockbuster and then copied it and kept the copy.

    The previous owner is the party engaging in piracy. They're the ones
that should get the boom lowered on them. 

    However, Autodesk wants to pretend that they can keep anyone from 
reselling their stuff regardless of the circumstances and the 9th circuit
is willing to go along.


    The rights of the original owner should have terminated. Their rights
in the full version they bought as well as the upgrade version.

    They should have gotten a visit from the BSA and the guy on Ebay should
have been left alone.
