Perpetual or subscription licensing for Autodesk? You can choose – for now.

jan-31-countdownIt’s the year of choice for Autodesk customers — organizations can either license Autodesk software through perpetual rights or Autodesk’s latest subscription licensing model, called Desktop Subscription. But not for long.

After Jan. 31, 2016, seats of Autodesk Point products, such as AutoCAD LT, will only be available through a term-based license plan called Desktop Subscription. While some suite products can still be licensed through perpetual rights after that date, standalone and network versions of popular Autodesk software will fully transition to Desktop Subscription.
