License keys of the software RRS feed

All replies

  • Hi All,

    If I clone a hard disk, are the license keys of the software also cloned  ? We restricted following on our software 

    • MAC Address

    If you clone a hard disk, the license key should be also cloned.
    But I cannot understand the meaning "We restricted following on our software  MAC Address".
    What does it mean?
    If some software prohibit from copying by checking MAC Address, it can not be used when NIC (Network Interface Card) is changed.

  • Please provide the name of the software that you are talking about.
    Different software use different technology for protecting its licence.
