Buying a used Word 2011 question!

The seller has a Word for Macs 2011 for 1 user,is it okay for my to install on my machine ?

Does it require to be activated like Adobe products ? Or just needs to type the serial number and that's it ?

Thanks

read this and the links: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2435801

seller would need to de-activate his copy and remove all copies from his computers for it to be legal...

You'll be able to install it, just not activate it (thus after 30 days or so it'll lock you out of the app until you do activate it).

Do you really need Word for Mac? If you want something that is compatible with .doc and other Windows formats, why not use either LibreOffice or OpenOffice? They're both free.
