if you move the modem to a new machine, the registration ID will change 
and it will make the license becomes invalid. If you change the 
motherboard or "flash" the BIOS, the registration ID will also change. 
In this case, please contact our support team at support at linuxant.com 
and we will generate a new license.

However, the licenses are not kernel nor Linux OS specific so when you 
will upgrade to a (future) Linux 2.8 kernel, the license will continue 
to work fine.

If you need a large volume of licenses, it might be possible to obtain 
more flexible licensing terms and you will not have this problem when 
you will move the modem to a new machine. In this case, you could 
contact licensing at linuxant.com for more information.
