Get your friend to get with Autodesk and get the license transfer approved.
Or you can purchase it and just use it, but you will not be the licensee and
not qualify for support and/or future upgrades.
I think it depends on if your friend has registered the license or not. If
not, then just register it in your name and everything should be ok. If he
has registered it, he probably has to sign a "license transfer document"
before you can upgrade it. This is how it works in Europe anyway.
Possible, but not likely. (According to my experience, I have recently done
quite a lot of re-registering due to company mergers.) The way Autodesk keep
track of their 100000's? of licenses is by registering. No need or use for
other ways of remembering who it was sold to.
