    The software license aggreement states you can install on one machine only. Why not buy a 2nd copy and keep it kosher?

    At $30, what is the point in breaking the law?

    oh thanks lol. well i will use the copy i have and not but another just because i think amazon should already have updated and included SL with my purchase. they do include SL with the iMacs and other macs but not with the mini. thats not ok. so that is my excuse hehehe. perfectly fine. :D

    And don't start complaining if apple decides to implement a license key due to pirates.

    What I don't understand is why you folks give out the information and gripe about the violations of the licensing agreements. If it bothers you that much, then don't give out the information and enable the violation to begin with.

    A much more appropriate response is to inform people that the license agreement requires either purchase of an additional license or the family pack.

    Yeah, it's very nice that Apple hasn't implemented some of the anti-piracy measures that are out there...but don't wave it in their faces that you either are or can violate the license agreements.

    And I do agree, for the cost, just buy the appropriate licenses. It's rather nice that Apple and many Mac developers have very reasonable costs for their software, let's all be reasonable and support them as well.

    I responded the way I did because it is the truth. It doesn't bother me a whole lot, iThink it's important to fully disclose the legality. I don't care if people don't pay taxes on their Amazon purchases, I do care when they say things like "tax free." It's important to make sure that people are fully aware.

    Piratebay 4 life in reason yes

    im being a good boy and not pirating like i used to, i bought all my mac software.. money is an issue.
