Q What are the Licensing Rules for Lightwright™ 6

A. Lightwright is sold as Personal, Student, or Institutional licenses.

Personal licenses: are available only in the name of an individual, actual living person and cannot be registered in the name of a title, pseudonym, company, university, or other organization. Please note that if an institution buys an individual registration and registers it in the name of someone working there, then that person will be the legal licensee and can legally take it with them when/if they go elsewhere. Limited to one concurrent user at any time.

Student licenses: are available only to a bona-fide full-time student (with appropriate photo student ID) for a period of time limited to 3 years from the date the approval code is issued, and are limited to one concurrent user. License must be in the name of the student, who must be able to produce proof of student status when requested. After the three-year license has expired, the software will cease to function. Student licenses cannot be upgraded to Lightwright 6 or beyond without first being upgraded to an Individual license.

Capacities and features are identical to the Individual License.

Limited to one concurrent user at any time. Student licenses cannot be issued to faculty, staff, or anyone else who is not a full-time student.

Institutional licenses: are a site license for use by up to six concurrent users. The registration must be in the name of an actual bona fide organization licensed to do business in the state where the license is registered. If the name is subsequently proven to be false, misleading, or otherwise outside the terms of the license, then the license will be immediately void without recourse by the licensee.

All Licenses:

Your license allows you to use either the Windows or Macintosh version of the software and to freely move back and forth between the two versions so long as you do not exceed the maximum number of concurrent users permitted under the terms of the license. You may install the software on as many different computers as you need, but you cannot have more people actually using the software at any given time than permitted by your license.

If you have a Personal or Student license, this means only one person can use it at a time, but he or she can be using either the Windows or Mac version. If you have an Institutional license, this means up to six people can be using the software at any given time, and it does not matter which platform any of them are using.
