This is a question about the practicalities of using my own copy of Snagit on client sites. I'm a tech writer/instructional designer who often does short contracts, frequently the client site won't have SnagIt installed. If I purchase a SnagIt licence, then I can install that license on computers on the client site (if IT lets me) and then delete it again when I leave, right? All I need is to keep the serial number so I can download a copy and activate it on any client computer, right? Anything else I need to know?

I'm no lawyer but this is an excerpt from the TSLA . If you uninstall SnagIt when you leave, I would think you're covered.However, you should probably contact TechSmith support to confirm this.

TSLA as a condition to the license granted herein and subject to the important restrictions set
