From 'Using FrameMaker':

You can use FM if you have either a shared or a personal license. You
can get a shared license from your network on a first-come, first-
served basis; however your system administrator can reserve a shared
license for your exclusive use. A personal license can only be used by
a specific user. . .

Occasionally, you may find that no shared licenses are available. In
that case you can use FM only in demonstration mode until somebody
else gives up a license.

'Demo mode' means that you that you can't save. You can print, but it
adds a message to the header or footer saying that it was printed from
a demo copy.

You can also have a timeout, so that a licence is released if there is
no activity for X hours.
