Lifetime Access to Free Software Upgrades: For as long as your license is valid, you will be able to download free upgrades of UBB.threads.

This confuses me a bit, it's recursive wink
If I have lifetime access, when wouldn't my licence be valid?

The wording is a template, everyone sees the same wording. You bought a lifetime license, right?

Well, this is my question.
I purchased a GOLD Membership for $325.00

the reciept reads:

We have upgraded your license to Gold status. With this upgrade your software license is being improved in the
following ways:
  • Advanced Support Time: We have credited your account with advanced support time equal to 10 units
    (5 hours total).
  • Higher Priority Rating: Any support requests you submit now also are placed in our queue with a
    higher priority rating (Priority Level 1), with a response time of no more than 1 business day.
  • Lifetime Access to Free Software Upgrades: For as long as your license is valid, you will be able to
    download free upgrades of UBB.threads.


So you tell me if it's a lifetime license. it *says* "Lifetime Access to Free Software Upgrades" but then follows that with "For as long as your license is valid, you will be able to
download free upgrades of UBB.threads."

All levels use the same template; just the type is defined; so instead of having to maintain 4 types of files it makes more sense to semi ostrisize the users who buy the big plan wink...

Well it doesn't make sense to me. I agree with Luket

I think the wording should be corrected or an explanation of what may invalidate a license. These seem so simple until someone is upset to the point of taking legal action and then one party or the other is left holding the bag so to speak.

What could invalidate a license? well, giving out the software to non license holders could; plenty of things could invalidate a license... That's covered in the License Agreement though wink...

But hey, i guess i'm weird that I'd rather have developers working on products than maintaining multiple copies of templates for their prepriatery member system that we don't even use other than downloading updates to threads wink...

I agree 100%. If there were a period after "Lifetime Access to Free Software Upgrades." and strike this For as long as your license is valid, you will be able to download free upgrades of UBB.threads.

I thought it a legitimate question.

Well, you can invalidate your license by violating the license agreement, thus; there is a way to make your license not-valid wink
