With Reason 7 there is a 4th option on how to assign your license:
Q: Does Reason 7 have copy protection? How does it work?A: Just as for previous versions, Reason 7 can be authorized in several different ways:
In Reason 7 and Reason Essentials 2 we’ve added a fourth way of authorizing the software. You can add your Reason, Reason Essentials and Rack Extension licenses to a single computer, for offline use. This way you can use Reason without being connected to the internet, or without a USB port taken up by the key.
- USB Ignition Key
- Balance Interface
- Internet Verification
I personally find this option for offline use very handy. The only question I have: what happens if I have a hard disk crash? How do I get my license key back?
