Uhm, an Autodesk dealer? Or calling Autodesk to transfer and
register the one that you acquired?

Offhand, I would guess that Autodesk's policy on old versions
is the same as it is with Microsoft's operating systems:
buying today's version gives you a license to run an older version.

I am sure there are a few businesses out there still running
AutoCAD 12.
