    If your site is deleted by your host because it's running illegally, then I would consider that a problem for the customer. We'll just have to agree to disagree on that one.

      I'd have to say, all that is being said is quite logical, never really thought of it like that. But if for some reason vBulletin isn't working out for you, instead of being $180 in the hole, you can get most of it back by selling the license.

      Owned License is a bigger chunk, yes, but it is the wiser choice in the long run.

        I'm guessing that this is what he was referring to. Part of the cost of doing business as well, sometimes includes elimination - whether that be in the forum of a company, a branch, a position, or in this case, the leased licenses. Yes some will suffer, and yes they will probably lose some customers... which is also the cost of doing business at times.
