If you move an existing VM within the same virtualization and cpu
technology you may be able to get away without reactivation or
obtaining a new license key.  MAC addresses can be set in several
virtual environment which can help in some cases.

I get your point here. I deal a lot with licensed ISV type software -
each has its own foibles,
though most use some flavour of FlexLM.
Maybe we should look at this the other way round - software licensing
should be changed to cope
with virtual machines being commonplace.
