Licence agreements - are purchases transferable to new projects


I’ve had a wordpress plugin I bought here for a few years. I stopped using it on any websites a while ago. The project I was originally bought it to use on, though eventually didn’t and uninstalled it, was The developers of the plugin are telling me that the purchase is only valid for that particular website, and that I cannot use it on my new website - if I did I would have to buy a new licence.

Is this correct? It sounds somewhat unfair to me.

Any advice much appreciated, thank you.

Ther does sound about right.

I know some authors may see it differently but licenses/purchases are for use in one end project and generally speaking once an item has been used for / associated with a project then regardless of if that project ceases to exist, anything new would be separate.
