What kind of copy protection does Reason and Reason Essentials use? How about Rack Extensions?

In Reason 7 and Reason Essentials 2 we’ve added a new way of authorizing the software and Rack Extensions. You can authorize your 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. To authorize your computer for offline use, please login to Your Account and click the Authorize button.

If you use Reason on several computers, you will still be able to add your license to an Ignition Key, or use Internet Verification. An Ignition Key is not included with the Reason or Reason Essentials software, but for those that need one, it is available for separate purchase from our online shop.
