I wrote to Tuxera Customer Support requesting clarification on the licensing terms, and this was the response:
"At the moment all our registered users are entitled to any upcoming updates/upgrades for free and we are not planning to change it."
That seems pretty unequivocal. This combined with the fact that the license is per owner (ie. all computers personally owned) and not per computer makes it a better deal than Paragon's offering, despite the higher ticket price.

OMG!!!! This app is a life saver!!! I have spent the last 7 days trying to fix the issue of my flexgo drive, thought I had lost 5 years worth of work, and as a 3D graphics designer, that is your worst nightmare! Long story short, downloaded & installed this, problem solved, I can now access it again!! Total business and life saver, a definite must have for anyone who uses ANY Seagate products for extra storage on a Mac!

Can anyone please comment on the differences of Tuxera NTFS and Paragon's similar offering?

Does anyone know how Tuxera handles licenses?
* Is there license a "lifetime" license
* Is there license valid for a certain period of time during which they provide free upgrades? Or do you need to buy every new version?
* How is there upgrade policy? Do you have to buy every new version you need for full price or is there an upgrade discount for previous customers?

Thanks in advance for any feedback on this!

I'm not quite sure but I read on some pages that it's a life time license.

Thanks for your comment! I wrote to Tuxera as well and got a *very* fast reply on my similar question.
Older licenses like my 2010 license were indeed lifetime licenses, but they changed their licensing model since and the newer licenses are only valid for updates within one major version, so if a new major version is released you will have to pay an upgrade price for being able to use it.
I don't know when exactly they changed their licensing model.
