What does my Software Maintenance cover and what are the implications if I don't renew?

Customers must purchase Software Maintenance (also known as Subscription and Support) in order to be entitled to upgrades and/or new versions or releases, as well as telephone support. Customers who allow their current subscription to expire must either re-licence the software (i.e. purchase as new) or pay a resumption or re-instatement fee so that they can receive an upgrade to a new version or release.
