    I want to sell my registered copy of Final Cut Pro 5.1 Studio software...

    Anyone who purchases it will want to be able to get the needed updates down the road.

    I removed the FCP software from the mac pro I have sold already...

    What do I need to do to insure that whoever buys it, will be in good standing with Apple? And able to do updates.

    How do I go about changing this registration info with Apple?.. assuming this must be done.

    thanks!

    It doesn't need to be done. Just uninstall it and sell it. The new user can work from there with no hassles from Apple. :)

    So, when someone else installs it on their machine and they then register it with their new information, warning bells and whistles won't go off at Apple from suspicions that this software is being used twice?

    Perhaps even some locking effect put on the FCP program?

    Apple is not Microsoft.

    People who buy originals are pro users. Why bother mucking around buying it original and then reselling it while keeping it installed when I see copies of OS X floating on places like Demonoid every day?

    Im saying that Apple could choose to lock down the software like Microsoft does, Checking the license to see if its legit.
