I would like to buy Autodesk AutoCAD LT 2014 (Mfg. Part: 057F1-AB5111-1001) license from North American reseller, but I reside and will be using the product in Finland. I'm not sure how does the licensing policy work? Are Autodesk licenses region-specific? Would I be able to activate my software outside of North America?
Autodesk licenses can only be used in the country or region where it was originally purchased. If you purchase the license in North America, you won't be able to activate it outside of North America. Therefore, if you wish to use the software in Finland, it would be advisable to buy the license there instead.
As per the Software License Agreement: "Except as otherwise authorized in writing by Autodesk, the licenses granted in this Agreement are granted only for the Territory. Nothing in this Agreement permits Licensee (including, without limitation, Licensee’s Personnel, if any) to Install or Access the Licensed Materials outside of the Territory."
While territory is defined as "“Territory” (a) means the country, countries or jurisdiction(s) specified in the License Identification, or (b) if there is no such License Identification, or no country or jurisdiction is specified in the License Identification, means the country in which Licensee acquires a license to the Autodesk Materials. If the License Identification specifies, or Licensee acquires the Autodesk Materials in, a member country of the European Union or the European Free Trade Association, Territory means all the countries of the European Union and the European Free Trade Association."
I hope this clears it up for you. Let us know if you have any other questions.
