What qualifies for upgrade licenses?

If I buy a PRO license do I need to purchase a subscription each year?
Subscription renewal is optional. If you do not renew your subscription your license automatically reverts to BASIC and you lose all the benefits of a PRO license. You cannot renew your subscription once it has passed the grace period reverted to BASIC. A BASIC licence allows you to continue to use the last version of the software you downloaded for as long as it is supported by BAPCo.
Does the PRO subscription autorenew?
No. The registered end-user or the original purchaser will be sent notification to renew.
