    Found the CD, installation guide and those software coupon things but I lost my DVD when moving apartments.

    Is there anything I can do?

    In this situation could I download iLife guilt free?

    So far as I know, Apple doesn't have any kind of a replacement program even if you have the software coupons, so from a moral standpoint, yes, you could go "extralegal" to find a backup copy of the DVD you lost. Your license is for the software, not the physical disc it came on.

    Were I you, though, I'd try to track down a friend with a copy and borrow his/her disc, as you're a lot less likely to download something nasty that way.

    Just d/l it. You paid Apple for it already and should feel guilt-free.

    Maybe the law doesn't see it that way, though. ;)

    You could always go to Apple with dynamite strapped to your body demanding satisfaction.
