Yeah I read that, thanks. Seems to be a per device licensing so a per
user lockdown would not really work unless you could guarantee that the
user would always use a particular machine

        I think not. I had a similar query about 2 years ago. The
response I got 
        from licensing@xxxxxxxxxxxxx was "no - Office is a per user
license, not
        a per concurrent user license", so you need a license for each
user who
        uses office. Note, certain licenses allow you to have office
installed 
        on more than 1 PC, provided you only use 1 at a time.
        
        For a definate answer, send you query to:
licensing@xxxxxxxxxxxxx
