Interesting read but it's the opinion of a person and I don't think he's right. Software companies have sued over infringements of the terms specified in a EULA and won.

http://ijlit.oxfordjournals.org/content/4/2/77.abstract

I can't access the article w/o paying. From the abstract : the author discusses in the article the validity of the license but the abstract is careful not to give any hint about what the conclusion is (they want to sell the article after all )

However, to be on the safe side, customers should probably start requesting or demanding transferability of the guarantee or warranty to cover situations like this - especially since cameras are now frequently re-sold, or may be given as gifts.

I've no doubt that Nikon would honor warranty for a camera offered as a gift. I'm sure it's happened many times and if Nikon did not do oblige we would have read about it in this forum ... many times  .

If manufacturers truly believe their product is of quality craftsmanship and durable, you'd think they'd be happy to oblige.

See my other reply about better customer relationships.
