    Sell back my license of Project Magenta

    Due to big financial problem, I'm asking If I can sell back my license of Project Magenta.
    I don't know if it's possible and how I can do that...

    Write to support at ProjectMagenta and ask them. I don't think you can sell or pass on your software, but never hurts to ask.

    Hi Slider,
    Sorry to say , but I can`t give you any hope either .
    This issue is coming up several times a year ,but they don`t give you your money back.

    The only thing you can do is to sell the software with the HD its writen on.
    But the problem will arise if the software has to be update or reinstalled due HD problems,
    then your buyer will come to you again for uploading your key.

    I understand the technical aspect, but I don't understand why PM team can't allow it...
    And I don't thing PM team will be OK if I share my license with someone else.

    It`s just a matter of sales ,
    if they allow to recell the software , they can`t uphold the high pricetag.
    Others will be searching for 2nd hand software at a much lower price, and therefore lose income.
    On the other hand it will protect their software against piracy ,
    because you have to apply for a key when reinstall after computer meltdown

    Re: Sell back my license of Project Magenta

    I just called Ford and asked if they would buy my car back. Its nearly brand new. They said no way.
    I also called Gateway and asked if they would buy back my laptop. They said no way. I called Microsoft and asked if they would buy back Windows. They said no way. I asked Barnes and Noble if they would buy back Flight Sim for Dummies. They also said no way, but lady asked if I would perhaps like a copy of Marketplaces for Dummies.

    Re: Sell back my license of Project Magenta

    I buy a brand new car, and if I want to sell back to another person, I can do it.
    I buy a classical software, and If I want to sell back to ebay, I can do it.

    That I can understand , who wants to buy a ford anyway.
    But i think you have bought a licence to use the software, not the software itself

    Slider,

    I sympathise with your situation but there's one big difference between selling a physical object like a car and selling software. You own the car but you don't own the software. When you give PM your money you're not buying the software. You're buying a licence to use the software. It's the licence that you cannot transfer to another person.
