While that would seem to be the logical case for a user-based license,
it does not always work out that way.  From what I have seen, SSA-GT
maintains that the existence of a valid license to use the software
does not obligate them to provide a key if you change hardware.  My
understanding (not from personal experience) is that this becomes an
opportunity for SSA to extract additional funds.

Optimistically, perhaps the recent ownership changes have changed that policy.  

You need to pull the contracts from the files and either read them or
have an attorney read them, in order to know exactly what your rights
and their obligations are with respect to license keys.
