Individual owners may sell your copy of Max unless you purchased an academic license or received the software as an NFR (Not For Resale). The sale will include all upgrades associated with the copy of Max you are selling. Please read the restriction details below.
In order to transfer a license, please provide us with the full name and email address of the new owner. We will contact that owner and register your copy of Max in their name. At this time your authorization will be deactivated.
Please email the following to firstname.lastname@example.org:
1. Buyer's full name and email address.
2. Owner's full name and email address.
3. Any other helpful or important information regarding the license.
We will contact both parties once the transfer is complete.
Institutional licenses may not be sold or transferred to any individual or other school. If you would like to transfer any licenses from one department to another within the same institution, please email email@example.com.
You may not sell any earlier version of the software that has been upgraded. An upgrade is not a separate license. (For example, if you own Max 6 and then upgraded it to Max 7, it is the same license.) If you sell any part of your license, you sell all of your rights to the software.
If we receive a request from a new buyer for an older version of Max that has already been upgraded, we will delay the registration until both parties have been contacted regarding the sale of the license. To complete the transfer, all versions of the software including the latest upgrade will be transferred to the new owner.
If you sold a crossgrade license you are ineligible from purchasing an additional crossgrade with the same Ableton Live serial number.
You may not sell or transfer any Academic license of Max.
You may not sell or transfer any NFR (not for resale) copy of Max. NFRs are not eligible for an upgrade.
