Is a purchased reg. key only good on 1 PC?

? about purchasing key.

If you purchase a key is the key only limited to 1 PC?

What if I purchase a key and in a cpuple months or next year get a new computer?
*Will I need to purchase a new key?

If I purchase a key for Win. Can it also be used on Linux?
* Or does a 2nd key need to be purchased?

Purchased keys are usable on any supported operating system, be it Windows, MacOS, or Linux.

You can install it on multiple computers, but the license is for one user... No lending it to your friends, but you can run it on multiple computers yourself.

IMHO this "little detail" should be mentioned on this subpage http://makemkv.com/buy/, as one could run this fine piece of software on his/her Windows PC, MacBook and (someday) Linux-based Raspberry Pi.

You might want to raise that suggestion to Mike; a lot of us have been asking for the "buy" link to be put on the home page in a visible way... :)
