    I have the GM of Lion that came out a few weeks ago. I went a head and bought it just so my account shows I have a legit copy and I just like paying for good software :) So my question is should I even bother running that installation? Will it even let me?

    If you truly have the GM build, then, no, don't bother.

    To make sure you have the GM build and not an earlier beta, go to Apple Menu -> About this Mac and Click Version 10.7. If the build number displayed is 11A511, you have the GM build.

    GM doesn't expire like the betas usually do?

    I know it's the shipping version, but I thought unless it came from the App Store, it was still not "official".

    if you are truly a dev, and got the GM directly from Apple, don't bother; you've already "paid" for yours

    If you installed a pirated version, then do the right thing and spend 29 bucks and get it.

    Really just that simple!
