  • Do I Have to Pay?

    My license runs out this December. If I decide not to pay for vBulletin 4.0 in any shape or form, and just keep what I have, do I have to remove vBulletin 3.8?

    Or, can I continue to use it?

    It depends on what type of license you have and then, what steps you take.

    If you have a leased license that expires in December, and you don't pay for the upgrade to 4.0, then after the December expiration date you must remove the software from your site.

        Then yes If you want to continue to use vBulletin after your license expires, you will have to renew

          You definately need to renew your license. Otherwise you will be in deep trouble if you don't.

            Point of clarification: Renewals are no longer required (or available); however as a leased licensed holder you are eligible for the current pre-sale discount on 4.0 Publishing Suite.

              How about similar situation for a owned license, if the license already expired more than an year ago.

                I think you have to pay full price.

                  You get a slight discount now to the publishing suite if you buy before the end of this month.

                  If it's an owned license, you could continue to run what you have now if you patch it yourself as any security issues or any other compatibility issues come about (which will probably cost you more in time over the long run that the upgrade cost). But you won't have access to any updates, and there is no way to renew if you wanted access to the current 3.8.x patches other than upgrading to the 4.0 version license.

                    That isn't what I was really asking, though. I was asking if I can continue to use vB 3.8 after December when my license expires and not even bother upgrading to vB 4.0.

                      If you have an owned license, yes. However if it's a leased license, no.

                        If you have an owned license, you can keep running it...it is yours to run...you will just no longer be able to get updates.

                            After looking at the price to upgrade to the 'Suite' .. think I'll stick with what I have and switch to IPB .. $235 and I have an owned licence which is a few months out of date.
