Is there anyone getting rid of a license of softimage XSI 2015? I am currently licensed in 7, but my dongle... I worry, is failing occasionally. If it were possible to buy it off someone (and if it would work of course) I would be interested. Located in Canada. Not sure if there is anything I can do.

You - might - get a SI license when starting a Maya or Max subscription, if you're still lucky enough to get one from AD somehow.

Reselling of a software license is tricky at best with all the EULA's, local laws and such. I can recall a lengthy trial in the EU court about this, as some of the US rules regarding ownership of software don't apply in the EU.
And I think most of us will hold on to SI as long as possible ;)
