VinceH: I've quite a lot of sympathy for people who want to install something on more than one machine, as long as they are only going to be using one of them at a time (as sascott points out). Insisting otherwise seems to be profiteering and nothing else to me. There is no justification for it, it's just profiteering. CDs and copy protection have been in the news often enough, but not even the notorious music companies try to say you should have to buy a separate CD for every CD player you might use.
