There is software running on the vICE/vProbe, so you don't have to be 
selling the debugger GUI (vClick) to break the non-transferrable part of 
the license.

Even if that were not the case, it would not be very fair on the 
unfortunate person who bought the probe. Since WR track every probe by 
it's serial number, the buyer would be unable to get a real license.

So they would have paid money for something they can not use.

Guess it is a moral decision then - do you sell something you know the 
buyer will be unable to use??
