License FAQ

What is your license policy?

Each Live license is intended for a single user; it is registered to one person and covers the use of the software on two computers owned by the license holder.

Please read our license policy for further details.

How can I register a serial number?

What do I need to do to transfer my license to another person?

If you would like to transfer your Live license to another person, please provide our Support team with the following information.

Can I  transfer my old license to someone else now that I've upgraded?

You may not transfer an older version of Live which has been upgraded, unless you wish to transfer the complete license (including all upgrades).

If you previously owned licenses for any add-on components and then upgraded to Suite, you can no longer transfer them separately, as they have been absorbed into your Suite license.

Non-Suite add-ons such as the Ableton Partner Instruments and third party packs can be transferred separately.

How many computers can I install Live on?

Since many people use a desktop computer and a laptop, you get two authorizations when you register your product.
