Transfer ownership of a NIC (Network Interface Card) to another AWS account


Is it possible to transfer ownership of a NIC to another AWS account in the same availability zone?

For context, I have moved/transferred ownership of an AMI instance and now I want to transfer the ownership of the original NIC associated with the instance, that is to enable us to use the same MAC address association for licensing purposes.

Unfortunately it is not possible to move an ENI to another account. Neither is it possible to define the MAC address for an ENI. Please note: You can create a network interface in a subnet. You can't move the network interface to another subnet after it's created. You must attach a network interface to an instance in the same Availability Zone (has to be in the same account)
