    Am I lucky or what?

    I registered my MacBook a billion times (since I didn't receive any e-mail in the past 2 days) and I got a ton of e-mails from Apple! And they have different codes! I HAVE BILLIONS OF COPIES OF MOUNTAIN LION!!! FOR FREE!!!

    Anyone else has this thing going on?

    Well I'm still waiting. I registered within 10mins of the UK site going live. Well done on getting your code or in this case codes.

    I would have expected it to be in the gazillion range. ;)

    Since all of them are connected to your personal Apple ID, and you only need one copy, I would forget about the extra codes. They might find out and charge you for any extra downloaded copy of ML a part from the first one.

    They can't - I don't have my credit card registered on my Account.

    I registered 3 times and got two codes... haven't tried using the second one in case it invalidates ML from the first code (which I still haven't installed).

    I knew I wasn't the only one.

    If they want to charge you they will. They will or can bill you ... best to ignore the codes.

    If you do give them out please keep us posted. I'd love to see what happens to you.

    I'll never give them out or use them. I just wanted you to know that I received a lot of codes.

    As much as possible, I try to be legal in every software I download. Although I have used two, I just deserved one. Nothing fancy happening.

    I don't understand why he/she was banned, it was more than possible that he got a bunch of free codes and it seemed all he/she wanted to know was if other people had gotten multiple codes too.

    Read the other threads they started and it should be obvious.
