    Well the OP wants to "steal" it rather than going out to the shop and buying it, it is certainly morally wrong.

    well if I actually was planning to steal it I wouldn't be on a forum saying so what I meant ( and should have made more clear by the sounds of it) is that I'm looking to buy leopard some one at work said he has a copy I could have and it would work fine. I expected it not to work due to serial code? Or as he registered it 1st. thanks for replys though.

    What are you talking about? The OP explicitly states his friend is selling the disk to him.

    As long as his friend removes Leopard from his computer then it is not piracy.

    cheers, that is pretty much what im taking bout, im not looking for a dodgy copy, i just wanted to see if it would work properly seeing as i didnt buy it 1st, although i would own the copy after buying it off my friend (and by copy i mean original leopard cd and box as if bought from store)

    His friend isnt doing anything wrong either as long as he removes Leopard from his own mac.

    As far as I'm aware he is getting rid of it. He bought a refurbished mac from john lewis (UK store) and its had issues so he said he returned it. But bought leopard for it and now has a copy he can't use. I guess I should have been more clear. I just didn't want to buy it off him if it wouldn't work or would cause problems when registering it etc.

    Thanks for all replys chaps
