Looking for details of IBM software license agreements?

These are questions I get asked a lot by customers…

What exactly does my Passport Advantage license agreement entitle me to?

Both the overall PA base license and the individual product agreements are available, and various search options allow one to find the information you need.  Definitely well worth bookmarking for the future.
