The current Sony EULA stipulates the license is for one user, it can be installed on 2 PCs for the same user, and cannot be used on 2 or more PCs at a time.

"Sony grants you a limited license to use the Software on two (2) computers or mobile devices, as applicable; provided that the Software may not be used on two (2) or more devices simultaneously".

The old EULA for previous SCS apps allowed for 1 install and 1 back up

"Sony grants you a limited license to use the Software only on one (1) computer or mobile device, as applicable, and you may create one (1) back up copy of the Software".

MAGIX allows for 2 installs on 2 systems.

The difference is Sony required license maintenance after 5 installs in any one calendar year, where the MAGIX applications allows 2 at any one given time and has a safeguard in place. Licenses can be maintained on the user's MAGIX account. If 2 installs exist, and the user wants to install to a third PC they have to deactivate from one of the other PCs.

In short, the number of installs allowed has not changed. There is just a different safeguard in place.

The previous generation of MAGIX applications required online verification monthly, however, the current MAGIX apps do not require the user to be online after installation. The license is tied to your account and it is still verified. Online activation is required, however the machine does not need to be online after activation.
