We're purchasing 1 license of CS5.5 for a department. They'd like to have multiple users use the program. Is that allowed ? Thanks.
Last time I checked, a license allows you to install on a tower and a laptop. But, you're only allowed to use one at a time. The license covers a machine, not a person. So, any number of users can get on the same machine.
Jim's understanding is correct.
See the end-user license agreement (EULA):
Section 2.5 is the most relevant section.
Is this still true for Cloud programs... install/activate on 2 computers but only use on 1 at a time?
Creative Cloud license does allow both machines to run at the same time, but they are tied to a person, not a machine. So legally, everyone in the department would require their own license.
Having said that, I'm not sure how that kind of thing can be monitored, so...
