Question about FCP Upgrade

I'm a little confused about how this works.

I have FCP 4 academic. I bought the $700 upgrade to FCP Studio 2, which turns out doesn't upgrade from academic after all. So I bought a non-registered FCP 2 on Ebay, and looks like my upgrade will work with that.

My question - if this works out ok, I'm going to sell my version of FCP 4 academic, but I don't know if I can sell the FCP 2 -- if I've used it to upgrade to FCP Studio 2, is there something that checks that number and makes it useless to someone else? I just wouldn't want to screw someone over if they try to do the same thing I did.

Hi Philip. I don't know if the installer checks serial numbers or not. But selling a copy of FCP which was used to upgrade to a new version is a clear violation of the license you agreed to when you installed the software. See: http://images.apple.com/legal/sla/do...alcutpro51.pdf

That makes sense... guess that was a dumb question.
