We all seem to agree the licensing is a mess.

We are very proud of it. Did you know that in Finland there are more saunas than cars per capita?

Back to the point (and do not shoot the messenger) things will be much simpler once Avid stops selling licenses and goes subscription only. To my knowledge it takes a minimum of five years transition after final license sale, after which it may not be possible to renew the support plan. However oif someone buys 100 years worth of renewals, Avid is obliged to honor the past sales.

I really hope this won’t happen!

Me too, but writing is on the wall. I hope I am wrong about this.

Thanks Ben Jenssen. avid 3rd party approved sellers can sell that upgrade like guitar center. So this definitely answers my question. Not for long I suppose as avid itself offers nothing like this anymore. Tricky subscriptions. I know this isn't the place but its just like the world global elites want it. you will own nothing... and you will be happy lol. Thanks again for your knowledge!
