    Owned license and access to the member area?

    I have a question about converting my leased license to an owned license.

    Let's say I purchase another 2 owned licenses which bring the total on 3. I am correct in assuming that you only need to pay 30$ for getting updates for all 3 forums I am running?

    Another question, does an owned license exist for the blogging functionality?

    Thanks and kind regards,

    You'll pay $30/year each.

      if you own 3 licenses and want to get updates you have to pay 30 for each license you have. so that means you would have to pay 90 if you want to renew all in one shot.

        No offence to all the replies, but I would really like to hear this from the official Vb staff.

        This is what I found so far.

        An owned license grants you the right to run vBulletin on one web server and one web site for each license purchased for an unlimited time. Each license may power one instance of vBulletin on one domain. Included in this package is one year's access to the member area, where you can download updated versions of the software. If you require access to the member area after the year has elapsed, you can renew your access for $30 per year.
        In my opinion it doesn't say(clearly ) that I have to purchase this 30$ access for every owned license separately(I am Dutch, so don't kill me for trying this ).

        Thanks in advance.

          The renewal is per license. So if you have two licenses that you wish to upgrade to the latest version and they have expired owned licenses then you will need to renew them both.

            For what its worth, in my non-legal opinion, the intention is clear that the renewal fee applies to each license. Its the two sentences prior to the one you highlighted which outline this.
