I would believe that would be determined by your university policy on such
matters.  The seat license isn't going to look to see who owns the machines
only the count of how many machines the seat license is loaded onto.

Thanks to everyone for their response.  What if that person does not own
that PC and it is property of someone else or a business or institution?   I
wonder if the 5 seats have to include PCs that you own personally?



Although this could be highly unlikely, what if, for some reason, the PC
that is owned by the school/business was confiscated and music was found
belonging to someone else?  Does this become copyright infringement?  I
would think that it would.

To be clear: music played off an iPod isn't transferred to the PC by
default. In fact, until recently, you couldn't transfer music off the iPod
via iTunes, period. Now you can do so only if you 1) Purchased the music via
iTunes and 2) Use the destination PC as one of your 5 'seats'.



It sounds like she want to have iTunes so that she can easily rearrange the
playlists that are already on her iPod.

I have a faculty member that teaches dance and wants to download iTunes to
an institutional PC to add and rearrange music for their dance class.  (She
uses and iPod)  If the music is purchased on their personal account and then
transferred to a PC that is owned by the institution, is this copyright
infringement?



Has anyone else faced this issue and what did you do?



Thank you,



Todd
