Chris Christian added a post in a topic: Considering purchase
When you buy IPB, you can run it forever. There is no "leased" licences here. The 6 months renewal is for support/updates.
If you bought a license in 2003 and it expired in 2004, and now you want to use the new version, just pay $25,00 to renew your license and then download the new version. Very easy and simple.
