Default question about ilok licensing...

Hi, I just bought the PTIEP, and want to share it with a good buddy. So my question is, if I bought two ilok keys and installed the PTIEP on both of our computers, could i download the same license to both keys so both of us could use it? Thanks.

This is how the iLok's work as far as I know:

Once the licenses are downloaded onto your iLok, that's all you get. The only place they exist is on that iLok. If you happen to lose it, you have to try to convince each software company to issue you a new license for each plug-in.
If your iLok malfunctions, you can send it to Pace for repair but that can take a couple of weeks. Pace also has a paid insurance program that will give you access to temporary 2 week versions of your authorizations while your iLok is getting repaired.

Basically, don't lose your iLok.

You can insure your ilok as you would any piece of hardware in your studio.
