    Hi guys. I have a very simple question for you...:)

    I own a copy of True Image 9, I bought the actual CD version from amazon. I currently have it installed on only 1 PC, but I just wanted to check that it's legally (and generally, in terms of updates etc) OK for me to install it onto a second PC, which I own?

    Thanks.

    Nope, you have to buy another license.

    Legally you can install it on the second computer, providing you firstly uninstall it on the first computer. But I assume that you don't want to do that, so if you want ATI installed on both computers at the same time then Thomasjk is correct - you need 2 licenses.

    I think I'll just uninstall it from my old PC, and have it on my new PC. But if I don't actually uninstall it, I just never use my old PC again, will Acronis still have me terminated?:D (...is that what the ninja smiley's for?!:ninja: )

    Joking apart, it's a pretty gray area. Quite interesting, companies like Acronis must realistically accept that the buyer will bend the law a little.

    Honest buyers don't bend the terms & conditions of purchase at all - even if it is unlikely the company would or could ever discover it. A buyer can decide not to buy if he or she feels the terms are overly restrictive - but cannot arbitrarily decide to bend or ignore the rules. I have three licenses for three computers - and it is a VERY cheap price to pay for the value provided by the program. You're talking peanuts.

    It's actually not a gray area at all. The only gray area is whether the buyer is willing to cheat on the terms.

    On that appropriate note, this thread is closed.

    The end-user license agreement is explicit on this point. I currently have TI8 on the machine that I am writing from and it states, in part:
    I will also remind all that the terms of service of this site notes that (bold added by me):
