A perpetual software license is a type of software license that authorizes an individual to use a program indefinitely. Generally, outside of termination, a perpetual license allows the holder to use a specific version of a given software program continually after the payment of a single fee. Adobe refers to this as their "Classic Track" licensing model for the few remaining applications that are still available in this manner.
