Site License

What Does Site License Mean?

A site license is used when purchasing software for single site usages but with multiple users. It denotes the usage of purchased, rights-protected work used by multiple users at a single location. These users are granted permission to access copy protected work, but only at that particular location.


Agreements of site licenses sometimes include a set of limitations on the number of software copies made by end users. Simultaneous computer usage of copyrighted digital information is made possible by site licensure.

This term is also known as software licensing.

Techopedia Explains Site License

Site licensing is less costly than purchasing multiple copies of protected works. However, users cannot take copies of the digital media outside of the location specified in the site license. Site license agreements must be observed for license holders to protect themselves against liability.
