Advice on License Situation

Hey,
I'm in a sticky situation. I bought Reason 3 on ebay a few years ago thinking it was a full version as it was advertised as a "brand new full version". It was only about €50 cheaper than in the shops so I wasn't suspicious. It came sealed, and has been working perfectly. It's only now when I try to upgrade to Reason 4, after having bought Record for Reason owners, that I have been informed by propellerheads that my copy is NFR and therefore not suitable for upgrade. The ebay sellers account and email address are no longer active. All I need is a license number for any version of Reason. Has anybody got any suggestions?
Thanks,
Eric

Buy or better, get () another full version second hand (e.g. 2.5), have the license transferred, and upgrade.. I think it's the only cheapest way..

Transferring an unused license would be the best option cos I don't want to fork over the full amount again. I'll keep my eye out for any cheap offers.
Thanks

That sucks... Selling NFR copies is pretty low.

Trawl the 'net in search of some old copies of Reason. I've seen copies of v1 or v2 floating around for $50 or so.

if it was a sealed NFR version, it should have had an NFR sticker on it. of course that could have been taken off I guess....

Yeah,
Looking at the box closely I can see that a sticker has been removed from the top corner. I hadn't noticed it until now.
Thanks

Argh! I am in an incredibly similar situation to ermoko... I am so pissed! If anyone has a link to an older version of Reason or something, that would be fantastic... Otherwise I am stuck with this not so cute Propellerheads Record for Reason Owners software box/paper weight :'(

Check eBay on a daily basis, I've seen copies of R3 going for as low as £50, so as long as you're in the EU, or in the US buying from someone else in the US, then you don't have to worry about customs charges n stuff.
