曾经听说过获得许可证转让费吗? [关闭]

My employer was recently acquired by a much larger company. In the process of sorting out all the legal details around our licenses for our development software, we have learned that the vendor of our IDE charges a "nominal" fee of 25% of the cost of a new license to transfer our existing licenses to the new corporate name.

This struck me as absurd. I have not seen such a customer-unfriendly policy from any other vendor. Has anyone else seen this type of policy? Am I way off base in considering this unfriendly and abnormal?


I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is about licensing or legal issues, not programming or software development. See here for details, and the help center for more.

Wow really, just out of curiosity what products have you seen this with. Often i have had licenses transferred from my name to a company name and have yet to pay any transfer fee.
