Well I just received an email from Symantec which I could not believe this morning. I was running NIS 2006 of which I purchased the 2 year license for back in January, one for myself and another for my wife's computer. We overall did not have much problem with the package and were happy with the performance but we did have to reload my wife's copy a few times due to a LU update issue at one time. Mine of course had been re-loaded or switched between various computers I own at different times for testing and such but never on more than one at a time. Hence the reason I purchased an additional license for my wife. Anyhow, I decided to re-install my NIS license on a new laptop I just received on Tuesday and remove it from my old one. Well when it got to the activation part of the install it would not activate and gave me some error message and that I should contact Symantc, which I did and just received their email response. It states that I was using the license more times then is allowed and is not longer good so I should purchase another license. Are they kidding me? I still have over 400+ days remaining and they decide I can't use them anymore just because I am an IT Professional and reload or re-install my software quite often. It is not on more than one computer at one time and I can't find any EULA that states you can re-install the software too much. This is nothing more than bait & switch and FRAUD on Symantec's part. This is the most UNETHICAL thing I have ever seen from a software company to do to their legitimate paying customers. I told them in my response that they need to either refund my remaining 400+ days on that license, or repair my ability to use it or I will be contacting the US Trade Commisson, BBB, my cc company, etc. This is clearly a desipicible method of trying to generate more revenue from their customers. Anyway I do like the NIS product but I now want to inform others here about Symantec's new illegal acitivities in reference to their licensing. Has anyone else here experienced this same thing with Symantec before?
