Hey,

My friend just got a new imac and he claims that there is a "unlimited license" on the in-store handouts. He put it on his MB, his brothers MB, and the imac that it was intended for. He says he'd let me borrow it, but I was just curious if anyone know if my computer will lock up or something due to to many computers running what was supposed to be a single license cd. This would be great to try leopard out, and if I really like the upgrade I'll probably buy it.


Thanks

Apple doesn't do license activation. They just trust you'll put it one computer. The family pack is no different than the standard.

Legally it is a single user license unless its a family pack, but you have to be at the same address for that. So what he is doing is illegal, but since apple doesn't do authentication he will get away with it until the wrong person finds out.
