If it was AutoCAD and the original owner has upgraded then the old
license for Release 9 is invalid. However if the serial number has not
been upgrades Autodesk will transfer ownership if you can locate the
original owner and get him to notarize a transfer agreement and then you
have to pay to upgrade the license to the current version..now Release
14 at a cost of around a thousand dollars.
