What if I don't want to renew my maintenance? 

Your perpetual license itself will never expire, however, your software maintenance will. If you are more than three years past your renewal date, your software maintenance will permanently expire. This means a new license would need to be purchased to gain access to the benefits of software maintenance, including access to the current version.
