Cisco ASA - Licensing Purchase Question

I've purchased a couple of ASA5505 firewall units from ebay with Security-Plus licenses for lab purposes.  I'd like to purchase the AnyConnect Essentials and AnyConnect Mobile for each of them.  Will I need to have these devices registered to my own CCO account or require any SMARTNET contracts to purchase?  Or are there no tough requirements to purchase these licenses from a Cisco Reseller?

Thanks in Advance!

CISCO will verify serial number of your ASA 5505 and license status with their status. You will then have to purchase additional license for AnyConnect Essentials and AnyConnect Mobile. License is bound to serial number of ASA device, you must order license for each ASA device separately.

Does this mean as long as there is no feature license associated to this firewall, it would not matter if this firewall was purchased from ebay.  Cisco will simply verify if the hardware serial contains an active feature or not before issuing a license?

If you want to change anything license related to ASA device, you or your CISCO partner must send serial number of ASA device to CISCO so they can check the status of the license and they will you send back new generated activation key, based on the serial number from ASA 5505. It doesn't matter where you purchase device, all will be seen on their side.
