    Remember a least license only allows you to run vBulletin for 12 months, after which you have to remove the board. So I would'nt bother buying that if I was you. I would buy a owned license though. And I think you can buy it and get him to transfare the details over to you.

      Please note that when you get a license from an unofficial source, you asssume all risks, including the possibility that this license could be phony or charged back and revoked. You should read this article:

        If you are interested in buying one, check or post over at WebHostinTalk.com, there are usually a few floating around there and if not, then a post may find you one.

        Keep in mind what Steve said, however.

            You can normally find them on WHT and it's legal to sale, although make sure the license they are looking to sell off is at least 3-4 months old, otherwise they may be unable to transfer it to you.

            Jelsoft states in the license agreement that they may not transfer it unless it is at last 3 months old, so that is something to watch out for when purchasing a used license.

                  You will be contacted by vBulletin staff during the transfer to verify the transfer, so don't pay anything until that happens.
                  Best Regards

                    I almost bought a used license, but after evaluating all the risks, the amount of money I would save was miniscule and not worth the effort. My .02. (However, I would buy a license off of someone I knew in real life that I trusted)
