Licenses are the second form of payment in Anno 2070. They can be used to buy items, activate world council actions or research technologies in the Academy. You earn licenses through missions, selling items, license trading or doing basic research in the Academy. You can also purchase some from using the "License Trading" diplomatic action with Salman Devi, Rufus Thorne, or Yana Rodriguez. You are able to buy 60, 180, or 600 licenses for 7500, 15000, and 45000 credits respectively. Unlike Anno 1404, licenses (equivalent to honour) cannot be sold for money except by the use of "License sales", a world council action belonging to F.A.T.H.E.R. The highest amount of licenses one can have is 9999.
