Today I did a renewal for my licence and after check the status in the software I realize a “remaining days of updates” shorter than the 1 year expected!
After some search, saw a couple of topics about the topic and realize how the system works.
Since they are already closed, I open this one to share my thoughts.
This behavior is somehow new to me. Everything I renewed until now, is from the moment I do the purchase, not from 6 months ago!
If it’s true that if, for any reason, only after 6 months of licence expire I was able to pay the renewal and I get the same updates as other customer who bough it right the day after, it’s also true that during these 6 months I was not able to enjoy the features/corrections and he did it.
If I’m only able to renew my licence one year after it expires, then I have to pay 2x30$=60$, when a new licence costs 40$!!
This is more a subscription system than a renewal system.
I’m a non-profissional and had chosen the Lightburn because of being a good piece of software for a reasonable price and I could renew the licence when I could afford it. Now I see that I have do a yearly subscription, even if I don’t use it.
Hope you can rethink about the fairness of the actual renewal system.
Finally I would like to ask how to revoke the license renew, and go back to my previous version.
