Is there currently anyway to gift a product to someone, if we are not using them and have no plan to in the future?

I have noticed I have a lot of excess stuff sitting on my hard drive that others may be able to use. If I could gift gift some to a friend and relinquish my rights to use them that would be great, but I'm unsure about legality of it all and don't want to potentially cause a problem for anyone.

Also if this is in the wrong area forgive me, I'm trying to figure the forums out.

No - downloaded files are not the same as the licence for using them, and that cannot be transferred by copying the downloaded files - in fact copying those files would be software piracy and break the licence.

This is different to an activation code for a product (usually steam codes) - those can be transferred unless you've used them for yourself.

I thought as much, but was hoping that wasn't the case haha.

Thank you for responding
