Not if you don't use it. I have a lifetime license and barely use it. To much of a hassle to use. Though I do use Sandboxie when testing out different firefox addons and software.

I thought to open up a thread, but I thought it might already be posted somewhere i.e related to this. Anyways, can anyone direct me to a link to some news where sandboxie mentioned why they stopped selling lifetime licenses, or if someone knows the reason and some announcement done somewhere related to it.

Official post was located here: http://www.sandboxie.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=16676 but seems to be dead now.
Anyways here is what they said:

"To ensure future growth of Sandboxie, the licensing model shifts today from a lifetime licensing model to an annual licensing model.

Licenses issued in the past which did not include an expiration date will remain without expiration date, and may be used on more than one computer, per past licensing terms.

All new licenses issued starting today will expire in one year after initial activation of the product key, and are limited to one computer per one product key.
