Exclamation Ignition key not responding / Internet verification blocked

I'm using Reason on both my laptop when I produce music whenever i'm not my studio. So when I go to my studio i transfer my reasonfiles to my desktop and continu working.. The problem is I often forget to quit reason on my laptop and I also prefer the use of internet verification as I despice dongles.

Right now my account is blocked because this happened 3 times (twice from the same IP Number) For another reaseon my ignition key is not working. When I insert it its blinking red yellow between 5 and 10 seconds and then nothing! This shit is killing me as I have an really big project I need to work on.

I'm almost at the point where I'm uninstalling reason 6 and go back to version 5.

I already contacted the support crew but no feedback so far. I know that piracy is a bad thing but you really can't make it paying customers to hard to get their stuff to work. Also I think it's quite reasonable to let Reason work on 2 computers at the same time if they are on the same IP number!

No one ever had this issue?

How long does it take before they unlock your account?

What could be wrong with the ignition key?

Only support can help you with this, as you are indeed not supposed to have two Reasons running at the same time.

It sucks, I know. When you buy a couch, you can sit on it with as many people as you like, since it is YOUR couch. But apparently this is not the case with software. Stupid world.

Well, not really. One person buys Reason 6 and loads it on a bunch of computers. The log in info is shared about and then a bunch of people can use Reason without paying for it. Sucks to be Propellerhead.

Grum.

Common man, it's so obvious that this has nothing to do with me sharing my info with other people so "a bunch of people can use Reason without paying for it. "

In 4 months it happened three times and twice it was from the same IP Adress. And I actually find it really weird that you can't use 2 computers to use your software simultaneously. My point is that I bought software. I could 've just downloaded Reason5 and use it without paying for it but I strongly believe in paying for software so you can get proper service when you need it.

It makes me wonder that I lost a day in the studio not able to do ANYTHING because propellerhead will take at least 2 days to get back to me. its pissing me off quite bad

I wasn't accusing you of sharing your log in, I was just pointing out why there has to be restrictions on logging at the same time as I didn't agree with Exowildebeest's post.
It appears you have been sorted out now so hopefully you are happily making more music .

Grum.

I once gave my friends the key to my house so they could use my couch.

Then the couch-company came and took my couch away. Turns out, I didn't buy the couch, just a license to use the couch for myself.

Illuminating absurdity aside, what amazes me is how Reason, and software in general, is misleadingly marketed. It is not made very clear that you are buying a 'license to use' instead of ownership. You don't see that in the store. They are not makng commercials urging you to buy the license, they are making it appear in their advertising as if you buy the software.

Not to mention the text of the licenses themselves, sometimes being insanely long and full of legal gibberish - just read the iTunes licence forbidding you to use the software for manufacturing chemical, biological or nuclear weapons.

The world is absurd, that's all I'm concluding from this.
