I'm going to look for the link to some news article a ways back, it disappeared rather quickly. I was at Microcenter that sells refurbished PC's (sometimes, I give advice where to get the best deal for PC's). I noticed that the refurbished PC's had TWO MS COA's on it. One for the actual computer (say, HP, IBM, or Dell), and ANOTHER ONE that had "Refurbished COA" on it with a totally different license number, but for the same product. I read somewhere's that MS was going to start charging refurbished and recycling dealers a re-license fee for MS Windows since the EOM license is only for the end user, not for resale. So let me get this straight, you buy a computer with an OEM license. Yes, it's for that computer only. But then you want to resell the computer, the license is no good for it? You have to get a resale license for it (or a brand new one) from MS? It seems to me, someone paid MS for that extra license, and YOU KNOW it's going to show up in the final price of the computer. I have an uneasy feeling that I'm paying twice for the OS on there... Thoughts? I'll try to find the old news link.
