Before I buy old Reason

Hello. someone will sell me Reason 2.5
I live in Europe and he lives in the U.S

there is no need to send me the software Cd he will only transfer me the license from his account to mine.

My question is can he remove my license in some future? if he keeps the box and the license card

I will upgrade to Reason 7 but I want to be sure that everything will be ok after I pay him he transfer it to me and after one week I dont want to remove it back or something.

Sorry for my bad English and noob question.
Cheers!

It's a possibility, because that would be a strong proof to present to PH Support if he wanted to reclaim that license, saying someone took a look at it and used it to register as their own.


BUT

On the other hand, PH Support staff isn't that stupid (quite the opposite) and they'll have his own account history, his request for transfer (that theoretically could be forged if someone got hold of his account, but that's why you should never lend your account to others) and on top of all of this, your own Reason 7 upgrading which would "seal" the deal, I guess.



My guess is that you should ask PH Support directly instead of asking it here, so you get an official word on it.

A license transfer is monitored by Propellerhead so if you have that and you have proof of payment, there's nothing that the other party can do.

You must have the software CDs (especially the sound bank CDs) to install Reason 2.5.

He doesn't need to. He can upgrade to 7 and install that right away.

Just have him mail the card (not the box) if you're really worried.
