OnLive Desktop may violate licensing agreements

Typically, when a product hits the market, you’d hope details like nitty-gritty licensing and IP would have all been worked out prior to going on sale. Of course, things in the real world are never that simple. Take for example, OnLive and Microsoft, which according the latter, says OnLive Desktop isn’t exactly in the clear when it comes to its remote Windows 7 slinging abilities. Clarified on Microsoft’s Volume Licensing blog, Joe Matz, VP of worldwide licensing, said the company is “actively engaged with OnLive” in the hopes of “bringing them into a properly licensed scenario.” When asked, an OnLive representative responded with: “We have never commented on any licensing agreements.” Sounds like it’ll all get resolved soon, but in the meantime do your homework kids — lawyers are expensive.
