Yes, the computer industry has undergone significant changes in recent years, and this has had a major impact on the way that software is licensed and used. In the past, most software was purchased as a physical product and installed on a single computer. This required users to carefully manage their licenses and ensure that they were using the software legally.

Today, however, many software products are delivered as cloud-based services or are available through internet-based licensing and activation systems. This allows users to access their software from multiple devices and provides a more flexible and convenient way of using software.

As a result, many editors are now reassessing their approach to licensing and how they use software in their workflows. They are looking for ways to simplify and streamline their licensing processes, while also ensuring that they are using software in a legal and compliant manner.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a major impact on the way that people work, and it has led to an increased demand for remote connectivity and collaboration. As you mentioned, many editors and assistants are now working remotely, and they rely on high-speed internet connections to be able to collaborate and share files with their colleagues and clients.

In addition to the need for fast internet speeds, the shift to remote and hybrid workforces has also highlighted the benefits of hiring remote workers. Many companies have realized that they can access a wider pool of talent by hiring remote workers, and this has allowed them to recruit top-tier professionals who may not be available locally.

Overall, the pandemic has accelerated many of the trends that were already underway in the computer industry, and it has forced many businesses to adapt and embrace new technologies and ways of working.

So, what changed? In this article, Chris puts together as much current info as he could to show what Avid customers can expect from their licensing moving forward.
