License type is determined by the purpose, for which the license was provided (commercial or academic) and by the type of use: local license (for standalone computer) or network license (for more computers in a network).
If you buy a local license, you may install the software on arbitrary number of computers, however it will only run on a computer, to which your hardlock is attached.
If you buy a network license, you may use the software on more computers in a network. Maximum number of users that can work with the software at one time is given by the number of purchased licenses. In order to run the application, appropriate network hardlock has to be connected to a computer in the network.
If you purchase a multi-license, you may use the software on unlimited number of computers, either in a network, or on standalone computers.
