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.

I just got my upgrade copy of LR4. I am not sure if I am allowed to install LR4 on two PCs - my home-PC and my Notebook for work - and if that does function (regarding activation).
To make it clear. I am using either my home PC or the notebook at work, not both computers at the same time.
So is it possible to install one copy with one serial of LR4 on both computers?
Thanks.
