Second time I've seen this posting.

Just like any other software, when you upgrade, you are upgrading you
license rights to the new version. You may keep your old versions but
all of the versions are covered by a single license. That means, you
can only run one of the versions at a time.

The only legal way to give the software away, and have all copies legal,
is to get permission from the software publisher. Simply giving it
away, while you use your copy, and they use the one received from you
(both under the same license) can cause you to meet new friends: like
lawyers, judges, etc.
