Yea, that sucks!  Depending on your friend’s situation, can you keep the license in his name and have him renew when there are updates.  As long as both of you aren’t using it, I would think that would be OK.

I have a new one I have encountered.  A friend of mine is retiring and wanted to give me, free of charge, two copies of ACAD 2006.  (Unopened, in the box).

 

Autodesk will not allow transfer of ownership.

 

I am sure there are many other software agreements that are similar, and I just have not paid enough attention to the EULA when purchasing the products.  With any other product I know of, you can at least give it away when you no longer need it, and it does not just vanish into thin air as a valueless commodity.
