    You can, but you should only do it if you bought a family pack. :)

    Ethically you have a problem; this is against the EULA. Be honest and buy a copy for each machine.

    No, that would still be a violation of the EULA. The family pack isn't for friends to split 5-ways to save a buck.

    According to the EULA it is supposed to be 5 family members living under the same roof. There is one exception made for if you have children living at college, but their permanent home address is the same as your address.

    That being said, the difference between the single and family pack disks is a sticker on the front of the box that says "Family Pack" and the EULA.
