Default Protools Perpetual Education licence to Full licence conversion

Hello world!

A friend of mine want to sell his ProTools Studio Perpetual Education licence, after a bit of info digging I came across this sentence: "EDU Products are not eligible for Transfert of Ownership.".
Meaning there's no way to transfert the licence by submitting a case with an ASC, neither it is possible to transfert via iLok Licence Manager as I came across a case (on duc.avid) where someone tried to do it this way and the buyer encountered problems with his newly purchased licence.
(Tell me if i'm wrong there and that people successfully transferred their Edu licence via iLok Licence Manager.)


Now I was wondering:
A post in Avid Knowledge Base regarding 'Education to Full Licence Conversion' for Media Composer, said clearly that if you're purchasing an annual upgrade plan IF you're no longer eligible for Education Princing, this newly purchased plan upgrade your Education Licence to a Full Licence.

Does this apply to Protools as well?
And, if it is, can this licence be transferred by submitting a case with an ASC?


Kind regards,

Yann.D.

Thats right!

EDU licenses are not transferable due to the fact they are reduced in price for students and teachers so you will need to get a normal non EDU license instead.

If you have a EDU license and are finished with your education you can make it a normal PT version with an upgrade but you can’t buy an EDU and do that. You need to have that license from new.

Look around here in buy and sell as licenses come up quite often for good prices that are transferable and no problems when you buy them.

Alright, so my friend has an EDU licence, he's finished with his education now so if he buys an upgrade plan (normal pricing) can he now sell his licence? As it is now considered a normal PT version.

Thank you very much for your reply!

Ask them to check for a GET CURRENT upgrade in the pop-up for their Pro Tools Studio in my.avid.com/products, otherwise they can purchase this Upgrade from a reseller.

See avid.secure.force.com/pkb/articles/FAQ/FAQs-1-Year-Upgrade-with-Software-Updates-Support-Plan for more info.
