In a typical scenario, software vendors use the expiration date to prevent a perpetual usage of the software. However, there are cases in which the customer is allowed to perpetually use software Version X, but not Version X+1. In order to address such scenarios, a license carries an optional maximum software release information, which indicates the latest purchased version. Once an installation is upgraded to a not purchased version, the licensing solution returns a corresponding warning/error.
