Changes to Microsoft Licensing Terms documentation

Since the 1990s Microsoft have produced documents containing the licensing terms for their products. That’s all about to change… Today’s documents – the Product Terms and the Online Services Terms – are about to be combined into a Licensing Terms website.

This site is currently in beta and you can try it out here: http://bit.ly/2W2vj38. The associated FAQ (http://bit.ly/2HVsabn) tells us that the site will be live on 1st June, 2019 and the current documents will also be available until further notice. A new site for storing other licensing documents is also in beta and you can try that out here: http://bit.ly/2ExqKD4.
