I'm not really sure where to ask my question, so I will start here.
I have all of the printed manuals and all of the electronic distribution media for AutoCAD going back to R14 for Windows. (AutoCAD starting with 2009, I believe, was part of the Inventor Suite I began licensing.)
I hate the thought of just trashing everything; but, there's a lot here, particularly the manuals. (I also realize that the software is licensed, so I'm not sure I can even think about selling the media.)
Any thoughts? (If this needs to be moved to another forum section, I would appreciate help with that.)
imho you may sell all of that, just not the serial-number as it's licensed to you and does not have to be used by anyone else.
So if you remove the serial-number from the media it's just the material-value and not the license-value you give away.
If you like to find someone that may need your documentation and installation-media it may help if you place the info here, where you have your office (at least the state), because I don't think that it makes sense to send something across continents.

Thanks for your input.
I am in Indiana, in the US.
It's good to know about the serial number number aspect.
Do you know of anyone who has sold things of this nature in the past? Any idea of the value?
Thanks again for your reply.

Re: Yes I know: Timothy Vernor
I am not trying to get around my license agreement. I am merely attempting to salvage some value for the material in my possession.
I don't know that there's reason to differentiate that the AutoCAD and Inventor products referenced here were licensed directly from Autodesk. They were not purchased from a reseller with the intent to flip and make a profit, as was the case with Timothy Vernor.
There may be no value to what I have. If there is value, I was thinkinig it would be from a collector, or someone who still plays with an older version of the software on occasion.
Let me be clear... I do not want to do something that violates the licensing agreement that I had/have with Autodesk.
