OnLive recently launched a new app for the iPad that would let you use a virtual Windows desktop on your tablet, and now it would appear that Microsoft and OnLive are in discussions on whether the use of Windows in the app violates Microsoft’s licensing agreement.
Microsoft has posted on their blog about the issue, and have said they are in discussions with OnLive regarding their Desktop and Desktop plus applications.
Some inquiries about these scenarios have been raised as a result of recent media coverage related to OnLive’s Desktop and Desktop Plus services. Additionally, the analyst firm Gartner raised questions regarding the compliance of these services last week. We are actively engaged with OnLive with the hope of bringing them into a properly licensed scenario, and we are committed to seeing this issue is resolved.
