    I'm looking to purchase Sonar Studio or Producer Edition. To keep cost down I've been looking at various used copies. My question is would I be able to buy upgrades or download updates from Cakewalk for a used copy with CD key purchased from say the original owner? What if a copy have been registered? Thanks in advance.

    No. Part of Cake's license agreement for Sonar states the software cannot be resold and the license is valid only for the original purchaser. You can buy it, install it, activate it, and use it (all under the table), but you can't get support or upgrades.
