    Since I have Snow Leopard I want to sell my copy of Leopard.

    However I don't see a Install Disc for Leopard in my box but instead these two discs.

    Are these two discs what makes up Leopard? As in if I sell these to someone they can install OS X Leopard on their Mac?

    The Mac OS X Install DVD is what installs Leopard. However, you can only use those DVD's with that specific Mac. So no, the person that buys it will not be able to use it.

    Are you unable to read what the disk on the right says ?

    "Mac OSX Install DVD"

    Also:

    1) Those DVDs also have your licensed copies of all the software that came with your machine including iLife. If you sell them you no longer have an iLife license.

    2) Those DVDs are only licensed for the machine they came with: you shouldn't really sell them at all!

    Unless they also have a 13" MacBook pro, then seriously, yes. That is because it is not a retail disc, but one that came with a Mac.

    Seriously.

    Selling the discs means your transferring your iLife license, I'd just keep them.

    And if you buy Snow Leopard, you and sell the install disks, you won't have a license for iLife, so if you ever need to re-install you won't have iLife.

    The Snow Leopard disk does NOT include iLife.

    also if you bought the upgrade license for SL ... and you sell Leopard... you dont own Sl anymore?!?! licensing sucks ... it was way better when there where no CD burnerns.... good old time whoever owns the cd owns the software DONE this is so complicated...


    What happens if you buy a vista---WIn7 upgrade and sell vista? :confused:

    Licensing software precludes compact discs and actually precludes the personal computer market.

    You do not own software.

    You are no longer licensed to use the upgrade edition. It may also prevent you from reinstalling, if the upgrade installer requires the Vista disk or a previously-installed copy of Vista.
