licenses and installs are never checked or verified.sorry, I didn't know
and yes Im sorry i was to lazy to search first.
I understand that the family pack is cheaper then buying two...i was asking if I could just buy one.
What will I do with the 3 extra licenses?

Buy 1 copy of leopard and install it on as many computers as you want.
In the long run, it's actually probably better for the company to not have an activation scheme. More Macs running OS X, more users, more exposure, more switchers. It cuts down on system corruption since people who are going to cheat anyway don't have to rely on torrents to get the system. Remember, unlike MS, Apple doesn't have to rely on software for revenue.And then sit back and wait for one of Mr. Jobs' "Executive Customer Relations" goons to come by and beat you senseless with a sock full of pennies
Seriously though; can this be done? Yeah. *Should* it be done? No.
It violates the EULA, and the last thing we want is to get PO'ed and implement a (gasp) software activation scheme.
It's not a big deal just annoying and pointless. If someone wants a program for free "ANY PROGRAM" they can get it.... so their is no point to have an activation. in addition to that, if you have serial numbers now you have hackers, (S#=hacker=bad program=virus=unhappy customers) Also Apple knows most of its followers will purchase legit copies because they are extremely reasonable, unlike MS's prices. They may also want to support Apple, because they enjoy the fact that second place always tries harder, which in the end obviously makes them better.I don't know why everyone thinks a software activation scheme is such a big deal. You put in your serial number once and you're done.
