  • Multiuser license

    Is there a multiuser license for vBulletin? Some body told me that he has a multiuser license and he can sell licenses to other people for less price than the owned license. Is that possible? And if it is possible, what exactly he should provide to whom he sold that license?

    That information you received is inaccurate. There is no such thing. Report him to http://vbulletin.com/piracy

      If he were to buy the licenses in bulk he could sell them and make a profit.

        Except that license transfers are not legitimate until Jelsoft has agreed to the change, which prevents resale of that nature.

        At some point it would be nice to see an Enterprise or Site License version of vBulletin made available, but I would not expect it tomorrow.

          No, this is illegal. Please PM we with the info about this person, particularly an email address and URL to his forums.

            I don't know his forum and I think he doesn't have one. He only told me that in an oral conversation to tell him if somebody wants to buy a license. If I know his forum sure I will tell you.

            But what about buying the licenses in bulk as harmor said? If he bought many licenses with one user would every one of them have a different costumer number or all of them would have the same costumer number?

              slightly off at a tangent but i've seen hosting companies that offer free BB boards (usually phpbb althou there was one that did ibp i think) with hosting packages.

              If someone was to buy a dozen vb liscenses at bulk prices, would they be able to do something like the above using vb? If not would it be something you'd consider allowing in the future? (presumably with a site liscense or something allowing any number of boards to be run from the same server/ip/whatever)

                No, it still falls under a breach of the license agreement.

                  Does that mean if I bought 50 licenses I can't resell them again to any one?!

                    • was purchased more than 3 months in the past.

                      shame, it'd be a good thing to get free with a hosting package
