Can you help me with my software licensing question?

I want to buy Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Web Edition in order to remotely install it on the server.

The question is: Can I buy a licence in USA and pay in US dollars? OR do I have to buy it in my country (Portugal)? Since the servers are in Germany, should I buy the licence in Germany?

(And if anyone know a good reseller I would apreciate)

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


If you buy through Microsoft Select or Enterprise Agreement in the US you can allocate them overseas.


Why buy? Rent it using SPLA ;) Cheaper, once you count in the fact that you get the updates for free.
