    What to do with spare perpetual license that's no longer needed?

    I have a current perpetual MC license that I no longer need and don't particularly want to keep maintaining. Can this license by sold provately and the license transfered to a new owner? What are my options other to keep paying US$299 a year or let it run out . . ?

    Thanks

    Hello oze,

       Check the FAQ for Avid Video transfer.

    OZE

    Yes you can sell it but you or the new buyer must do a transfer of ownership of the license thru avid and the FAQ will point you t the form that will need to be submitted.  

    If you chose to keep the license and not continue to pay the $299, then the license will remain at the last version used prior to expiation of the plan.

    Re: What to do with spare perpetual license that's no longer needed?

    Been wondering the same, I have 2 perpetual licenses, 1 used & 1 unused.

    I have been trying to sell the unused activation card that for about 2 years now on various platforms... odly enough nobody cares, even on ebay I can't get rid of it.

    And now I need to renew my used perpetial licence support contract again while in fact it cost me way more than I use it for or make from it, it's like this peice of software isn't already expensive enough.

    Notes....

    There are a lot of folks that are looking for used licenses.  is this a dongle or an activation based license?  Also is it up to date or an older version?

    When I closed my facility I easily & quickly sold several extra licenses on ebay - do not understand why you are having issues.

    Hi Marianna, it's an unused/unactivated card for MC8. I emailed you about it a couple months ago to be sure it was still valid. It's been on ebay since.

    Thx

    It's been on ebay for months & months. I rarely sell something on Ebay, so maybe my seller rate has something to do with it or my location. (Belgium)

    Cheers
