Multiple ignition keys for one account

I purchased and registered the Reason 6 upgrade in the fall of 2011. I then installed it onto one of my computers and just recently gave that computer and ignition key to my brother. He does not have the internet, hence why I gave him my original ignition key. In the Reason 6 upgrade box came a new ignition key which I did not use; I registered the upgrade to my original ignition key that my brother has now. I do NOT like to go on the internet with my main recording computer, for it has all of my clients Reason and Pro-Tools projects/sessions stored on it. I would like to know how I can use the ignition key that came with the upgrade package as a secondary key with all my account information; as well as keep the original ignition key, my brother has, valid. If there are any other customers that have had this issue, please respond to this forum, as I would like to resolve this issue ASAP. I do not feel spending $73.00 USD on a replacement key is necessary, when I have an empty key in my possession that could be used.

You are in breach of the EULA by lending your license to someone else and your license can only exist on one ignition key. With one license you are only allowed to run one instance of Reason at any one time and the ignition key exists to enforce this agreement.

I understand the EULA and can see where that would be a problem. My brother and I have split the cost of the purchases for Reason from the beginning, I figured no harm done since it is my bother. So my guess would be to get my key back from him and tell him to get the internet so he can run it that way...

Two users, even if related, sharing one license is still a breach :/

I just got the key back from my brother, he wasn't too happy but it is what it is. After explaining to him the ramifications of the agreement, he understood. I would have to say it is inconvenient to the consumer but the company has to make their money; 2 users, 2 purchases. As foolish as it sounds, it would be wise for him to just purchase the full version of Reason 6.5.

Or you could do like you would a car: one at a time. The real problem is if you run more than one instance of Reason at the same time.
