RMS License Issues - Lapsed Maintenance and Online License Sales

Word to the wise on two issues related to the licensing for the Microsoft RMS point of sale software:
  1. You can not buy additional licenses of RMS unless you are an existing RMS user who is current on your annual software maintenance agreement. For example, in order to add RMS lane licenses, your organization can not be lapsed on  maintenance otherwise you will need to pay your lapse fee before you can buy additional lane licenses.
  2. Only Microsoft Dynamics Partners can sell RMS licenses as there is a registration and activation process that needs to be completed. RMS licenses can't just be sold via Craigslist and eBay without the registration and activation process being completed (so buying RMS via these sites may seem like a money saver but will likely cost you time and money in the long run).
