How to demonstrate proof of ownership for software audit?

Besides invoices, what documentation should be retained to prove ownership of software licenses in the event of a software audit? We have an internal audit scheduled, and I would like to be sure that I have all of my ducks in a row.

I think Aiden has a good answer for this, always keep documentation tucked away safely in case you need it later on for verification purposes.

A law firm that specializes in technology law has a blog I ran across that listed some things that you might want to hang onto beyond invoices:

Purchase Orders

License Certificates

Register Receipts

Serial Numbers
