What are the rules on puting Effects lab on multiple computers. Example: I own 2 computers. Is it ok if i put effects lab on both of them. And if they are both used at the same time with an internet connection on both of them will my product be voided?

they only want you to have it on one computer

you can uninstall it from one and put it on the other.. but not both

Check the licence agreement in the EffectsLab folder (which should have been read prior to installation), it has full details on such matters.

The licence grants a single install of the program at any one time.

Thats pretty much the rule for ALL programs these days...It's pretty much why Napster got shutdown...Well kinda...If you buy one product of something and there is no license that you cannot use it om multiple computers then whats going to stop you to make MORE copies and sell it personally OR give it to your friends?

This is really a dangerous thing for Effects Lab and Chromanator because you don't need a CD to run it...

ok thanks you very much for your help. Quick Question i talked my school into buying effects lab. We have 3 working editing stations and they were wondering if all they needed was 1 program and then put it on all of them. I'm guessing its that same rules for a personal computer. But is there any exemption for a corporation. I doubt it but just wondering. Also my TV productions teacher would like me to put my version on one of the schools computers to see more of what it can do. They do have the demo version but seeing how a class isn't that long. there isn't alot of time to get anything done and show are teacher. So he wants me to put my version on the computer until the school buys a version of it and test it out is this ok?

You need one license per computer, that's the rule for everyone. We do have a discount scheme for educational facilities, but that's usually for 10+ copies. If the teacher wants to evaluate the program then he can use the demo version.

If you want to show him how to use the program, but don't have much time, then you could just show him a movie you've made using the program. Then explain the main processes you went through to create it. That should be enough for him to see the kinda things it can do.
