  • As this is a technical forum, and not a legal forum, you should contact a trained Microsoft licensing specialist for detailed licensing information.  Relying on legal advice from this non-legal community puts your business at risk.  Generally your Microsoft reseller should be able to answer your questions.  If not, contact the Microsoft licensing team. In the United States and Canada, you may call the licensing team directly at 1-800-426-9400.

    Worldwide customers can use the Guide to Worldwide Microsoft Licensing Sites to find contact information in their locations.
