First, you definitely won't want to miss the Microsoft EULA FAQ :-)

http://www.microsoft.com/education/license/eula.asp

Don Rosenberg has some material on traditional (i.e., proprietary) OEM
licensing of software:

http://www.stromian.com/guide.htm

as well as some links to material on marketing and licensing proprietary
software:

Nolo.com has a book "Software Development: A Legal Guide" which
supposedly has some discussion of software licenses, including
"shrinkwrap" EULA's:

(Note that based on Amazon there appears to be a new 3rd edition of this
coming out

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0873376455/

but it's not clear whether it's already available or not.)
