It doesn't appear to be. At least I can't see anything about that in the forum rules.

See what i have done here?

The only options to get to the latest version of Pro Tools, if you have an expired annual update and support plan, are to purchase either an annual or monthly subscription.
There you go. Perpetual licenses RIP.

I am not giving AVID another cent.

Me neither. I will never surrender my perp licence. Rental just isn't a concept that I like. Its fair enough for the commercial users they can pass the cost on to the clientor write it off in tax. But for casual users like me who paid a fortune for an HD/Ultimate licence that hasn't paid for it self, for me switching to subcription simply isn't an option. Given the vitriol across the internet regarding this decision if Avid choose to ignore what their customers are telling them then they really Don not care. As for "massive shift in the industry", They've just made that up. For the record I WILL freeze my system and switch DAW in the future.

I think the instead whipping up fear everyone who has a perpetual lic is going to lose it..... something I have yet to hear or see Avid state but only imply these agreements will be kept as long as you keep your current subscription up to date. I just think what they are saying is they will not be offering this type of lic to future new users. They have also mention offering incentives for you to swap... so let’s not run away in fake news presidential style that ya perp lic is going to vanish or be taken away from you. Perhaps they just won’t offer update options.

I just brought another year subs so I’m good for three years. And I’m looking forward to seeing what PT will be offering in the future.... hell who knows maybe down the track you may wish you had of stayed around.

Yes, and let's not forget there's a current promotion to upgrade a vanilla permanent license to an Ultimate permanent license. I suspect the day will eventually come when they'll stop offering support plans for permanent licenses, but it won't be for a while yet.

Also the information about re-instatements has been so contradictory and confusing, I honestly don't think they've even decided what to do about it.

Default Re: ProTools price adjustments from July 1st.

Not sure if this has been asked/addressed already but why is it that whenever I return to DUC and look to check on this thread (as well as two others regarding new pricing, subscription polices, etc.), it appears on the second page, even though recent activity should have it near the top?

Edit: ... and still there after I posted above, which would normally move it to top?!
