Even though there was a time when some Broderbund/Encore products would not work correctly until after they were registered, that is no longer the case - because the only time registration information is currently used is to provide users with special offers and product information by way of their email address. For that reason, all Broderbund/Encore software will work quite well even when it is not registered.
As a matter of fact, if your address is not located within the United States or Canada, you will no longer be able to register some Encore/Broderbund products. This is due to the fact that the email address which is provided during the registration process is used to send marketing offers. And, since Encore/Broderbund is unable to ship outside the United States and Canada, Encore/Broderbund will be unable to fulfill any marketing offer sent to any address which is not located within the United States or Canada.
You may bypass the registration and continue to use the program without issue. Failure to register your software does not diminish your warranty rights. However, if you would like to receive special offers and product information, as long as you provide a correct email address, it is not necessary to provide a correct birthdate OR even a correct name during the registration process.
You will need to keep in mind, however, that some Broderbund/Encore products will display a message when the program starts if the program has not been registered. For example, the message in the image below will be displayed if a Print Shop 23.1 or earlier product or a PrintMaster 18.1 or earlier product has not been registered. However, all you would need to do is to click on 'OK' to proceed with starting the program.
