Unlike the old licensing technology which Henter-Joyce and Freedom Scientific used, which did allow a user to move a license key back to the license floppy disk. You cannot move an ILM license key back to the original web site location. So, when you license JAWS using the Internet Licensing Management (ILM) system, it does count against the total number of licenses which remain. So, if you license a version of JAWS on a particular computer and, you then uninstall JAWS from that computer, the number of ILM licenses is reduced by one from the initial count of three, which is why, when you run out of available license keys, you have to call Freedom Scientific Technical Support or your local dealer in the country where you live, to have them authorize a new key for you or, reset the number of license keys back to three.
The ILM system is very inefficient because, it is trapped by the locking code of a computer. For example, I have added hard drives to my system with no problem to the system changing the locking code, thus affecting JAWS. However, when I added the last hard drive, I accidentally disconnected the SATA signal cable from one of the DVD/CD units and, when I started the computer and when Windows finished loading and displayed the Desktop, JAWS came up with the message that I had to update my authorization or use, JAWS in 40 minute mode. After I shut down the system and checked the connections and found the disconnected cable and reconnected the cable, i restarted the system, JAWS loaded correctly, with no update authorization ore 40 minute mode message.

I also thought that if you expressly remove the JAWS registration from a computer you are no longer using, it no longer counts against your three licenses.
