Am I allowed to sell my copy of live and what is the proper procedure

Hi Guys,

I guess the subject speaks for itself.

I want to see my old copy of Ableton Live and I want to do it properly and legally. Is there anything I should know? How do I actually transfer my license? etc...etc...

    It's in the FAQ here, but:

    In order to process a license transfer, the seller must contact and submit the following information:

    • the serial number to be transferred
    • the email address that was used to register the original license
    • the buyer's full name
    • the buyer's email address
    • the buyer's country of residence

    Once we received this information from the seller, we will transfer the license to the buyer's user account at

    Note that we can only process license transfer requests that we receive from the current holder of the license (the seller.)

    Please note that only an entire Live license can be transferred: all Live versions and corresponding serial numbers contained in the license will also be acquired by the buyer. This applies to Ableton Suite and upgrades; you can only transfer the whole thing.

    Educational licenses can only be transferred to verified educational users. The buyer must submit a copy of their student or faculty ID together with a copy of their photo ID or an official confirmation from the school or university for verification before we can transfer the license to their account.

You need to be logged in, have a Live license, and have a username set in your account to be able to answer questions.
