I would assume that it's stored somewhere, possibly in the registry. You might want to reach out to Red-Gate directly and see if they can tell you an easy way to do this. In a quick search for documentation, I found this: http://documentation.red-gate.com/display/SBU7/The+Registered+SQL+Servers+pane which shows a dialog box that contains the information. Hope this helps!

Thanks John, I want to create a ssrs report detailing all the Database servers with their SQL backup serial key. Wanted to know if its possible to get it via SQL Server.

You can read the registry from SQL Server, however I might suggest looking at Powershell. You could create a script that would populate a table in a database that would be able to feed your report. Just a thought.
