    I have a g5 imac running tiger and a MBP running leopard. Just ordered SL for MBP. Can I legally transfer the copy of leopard to the imac since I will be running SL on the MBP, or do I have to buy another copy?

    Just wondering.

    I don't think It's legal to do this.

    The Leopard disc from the MBP wouldn't work on the G5 anyway.

    Thats not what theyre asking. Theyre asking if they can install Leopard on the G5 once Snow Leopard has been installed on the MacBook Pro. :p

    I think if Leopard came with your MBP, it won't work with the iMac anyway. If you bought Leopard on its own, it would work. However, it would still be a violation of the EULA. For any other OS upgrade it would be different since they didn't have upgrade pricing, but since you're getting it cheaper since you already have Leopard, it wouldn't be within the EULA to install that same Leopard on a different computer. However, if you bought the Mac Box Set, it would be a different story, as that doesn't have Leopard upgrade pricing.
