In a simple agreement, at the end of the licensing period, image-based titles fall into the frames they are on at the end of the validity period, and non-frame licenses become permanent at the end of the validity period.

In recent years, suppliers have adapted to maintain profit margins and transform the customer environment to generate more revenue. Differentiation is the best way to break free from the commodity label, and storage providers have focused on software as the main distinguishing feature.
