    It'd install just as usual.

    You'd technically be violating the EULA, but there's no authentication like Microsoft employs.

    Is $25 really too much to buy a legit 2nd copy (or $44 for a family pack)..I mean there's a link right on www.macrumors.com to amazon.com for them!?

    like the above poster said, you could do the install no problems, but would violate the EULA. If everyone had this mentality, Apple would employ a different installation system with stupid product keys and serial numbers. None of us want that. If we are all honest, then we will pay less in the long run.

    I'll buy you a copy if you promise to use the new spell-checking features.

    Look...since you obviously don't believe me and what I said in the first post...

    YES. Your computer will explode if you install SL a second time. Before it explodes though, it will put ads everywhere, including every other computer in your household.
