This white paper provides an overview of the Visual Studio product line and the licensing requirements for those products in common deployment scenarios. For a definitive guide to licensing terms and conditions for products licensed through Microsoft Volume Licensing, see the Microsoft Licensing Product Use Rights (PUR) document and applicable licensing agreements. For retail customers the license terms are specified in the End User Licensing Agreement (EULA) included with your product or with your MSDN subscription.
The MSDN licensing question seems to come up, well seems like every time we get someone new. What with the RTM release up VS 2013.2 seems like a good time to cache this here for a future, "I blogged about it..." email... :)
