I can tell by your answer I neglected one very important factor. I am the
customer, not the vendor. I am maintaining software not licensed
"concurrent" but I have the ability to delete user licenses. By deleting
licenses I will be causing it to appear as concurrent.

So, what I mean by wrong is, is it close enough to illegal I should not do
it. I think the point is moot, it looks like I need a key from the vendor to
do this via a program. I can continue to do it manually though.
