A word of caution on licensing

While Sony may be a little more liberal than most, please take care to note this is not typical in my experience as a LAN Admin. Most upgrades are sold as EXTENSIONS to the existing full license, thus not separable. Otherwise they would likely never sell a full license. Generally, you must have owned (and retain) an originating full license at some point. Full can many times include upgrade rights from software bundled on a PC, such as as upgrading from Dell (OEM) install of Windows 98 to Best Buy retail purchased upgrade to Windows XP.

Also, software such as Adobe bundles, while they allow for two ->non-concurrent use<- installs, cannot be broken out among more than those two machines. You cannot say buy the bundle and sell the Illustrator to a friend and keep the rest.

With OEM, CPU based, volume, lease/rental and other forms of licensing, this whole area gets way more complex than can be covered in a discussion post.

While it's true the software police likely won't come to your home for a one-off sale, pretty much everyone on this board creates intellectual property. If you don't respect other's IP rights, why should anyone respect yours?

I feel duly chastized, and acknowledge that I am a horrible person.

If anyone else feels the need to address this, email me personally, but please don't waste more forum time on this. I'm SO sorry I even mentioned it.
The horror of what I saw on the timeline cannot be described.

Just curious. If I started with 9, then upgraded to 10 and sold my copy of 9 to someone else. If I had fatal crash and had to reinstall, would I be able to reinstall with just the v10 install discs? Once I upgrade, do I get a full license on 10 such that 9 literally doesn't matter or isn't needed to get back to a full install of 10?

Bill, the answer is yes. If you have the 10 installer and a 10 serial number, you can install and activate without needing 9 - even if it was acquired as an upgrade.

Do note that if you sell your 9 license after using it to upgrade, the person purchasing it will NOT be able to "upgrade" - if they want 10, they'll pay full price.
