    When you purchase a leased vBulletin license, it is $85.00, which allows you to run the software for 1 full year, afterwards you must remove the software from your website, pay an additional $85, or upgrade to an owned license. The leased license is mainly for those that just want to see how well their sites fair before investing a full $160.00 into vBulletin.

    When you purchase an owned vBulletin license, it is $160, which allows you to run the software for as long as you wish and comes standard with a 1 year members area access, where you can download upgrades and such. Each additional year of members area access is $30.00.

    Whichever is chosen, you are still only allowed to run once instance of vBulletin per license you have/own. Each URL to where vBulletin is being used must be entered into the members area location form.

    Running more than one instance, if you do not have the licenses to do so, could risk your license and possible have it revoked.

    That's about all there is to it, nothing more, nothing less

    Edit: Wayne has explained URL updating and such in the post above this one.

    We have proactive Piracy checking procedures. When you purchase a license, in order to download it, you must enter in a URL and keep it up to date.

    If we find a copy of vBulletin running without a license attached the URL, we will contact the webmaster. If they don't respond in a specified period of time, proving their legitimate license, we will initiate legal procedings to have the site shut down.

    Each license entitles you to run one installation of vB, i.e., one set of files on one domain with one database.

    can u explain how the license works?
    If you get a leased license, that gives you the right to operate 1 vB on one website(eg. yourdomain.com/forums) for 1 year. After that you have to renew your license

    AN owned license gives you the right to operate 1 vB on one website forever.

    Each of the licenses include 1 year of Member's Area access, which allows you to download the newest versions of vB.

    TO renew your member's access, it's 30$ per year.

    Not if you have a bunch of hacks installed.

    vBulletin 2.2.8 is the latest version and includes bug fixes as well as other improvements. The only version available for download is always the latest.

    Upgrading versions is a fast (seconds, literally) and free process (should you have access to the members area).
