I can't speak to the taxation angle, but the Vernor case could certainly impact whether or not software like AutoCAD is accounted as an asset. If software is licensed and resale is prohibited, then it has no resale value, and therefore cannot be accounted as an asset. If it *can* be resold, then it should be accounted as an asset whose real value is based on its potential market value.

I think it's important to keep in mind that Autodesk (and a lot of other big players that have a stake in this case) will not go down quietly. This week's ruling represents a big knockdown in the first round, but it's a 12 round bout and Autodesk still has its legs.
