Can I loan software media to another person?

Q: I use MS Project (example) on my computer and I have a copy of the media.  My colleague also needs Project on her system.  I know she is planning on placing an order for the software next week. Can I loan her my media to install so she can begin working immediately?

A: No, for MS Project that would be a violation of your license.  Your colleague must have her own license prior to installing the software. For other titles such as MS Office covered under the Campus agreement loaning media would be acceptable. If in doubt contact AskIT for guidance.
