I have just bought Lightroom 3. I have a question about the licence. I have a desktop computer and a laptop. Can I download Lightroom3 onto both computers, or is the licence a single machine product. I would like to contact Adobe directly wirh this question but after searching extensively I cannot find an email address. Grrrr.

Here's the clause you're looking for in the Lightroom 3 license agreement:
"2.4 Portable or Home Computer Use. Subject to the important restrictions set forth in Section 2.5, the primary user of the Computer on which the Software is installed under Section 2.1 (“Primary User”) may install a second copy of the Software for his or her exclusive use on either a portable Computer or a Computer located at his or her home, provided that the Software on the portable or home Computer is not used at the same time as the Software on the primary Computer."

So in short, yes, you can install on 2 computers.
