I'm not sure where this questions belongs...

I have sold my Powerbook now that I have a MacBook Pro. Do I need to do anything special to transfer the remains of the Applecare warranty to the new owner?

    IVMichael is correct except that AppleCare of course is not software and is fully transferable I think he/she got the wrong end of the stick.

    8. Transfer of Service Plan
    Customer may transfer this Service Plan by sending Apple written notice of the transfer to AppleCare Administration, P.O.
