Not a bad price for a genuine version.

We used to sell the COA keys (genuine from machines we had stripped down) for XP on eBay for a tenner, Microsoft went nuts smile

Hello and welcome, first post I see, you're wrong, but thank you for butting in anyway.

There are a few different types of key, the Full version, which we can, and do, sell, and the OEM one, which is licenced from Microsoft by the PC manufacturer, and so can only be sold with the machine, selling it in any other way is in breach of the Microsoft terms of licence.

We were selling the plastic bases from the laptops we were breaking down, they still had the COA keys on them and it was this that Microsoft objected to, they either wanted them removing or for a greater amount of the original laptop to be included in any Sale where they might be.

Welcome to the machine, sit back, relax, enjoy. popcorn

I never have understood why the legal systems have allowed software to be strictly licensed, IMHO if you buy something, if the provider is not prepared to buy it back off you, you should be allowed to sell it on.

Its like buying a car and being told you are not allowed to re-sell it and not allowed to break it down and sell the parts.

Contrary to your initial opinion, I have quite an extensive knowledge of this subject, for reasons I am not going to disclose here, and can tell you that the COA dies with the machine, hence why Microsoft will have taken issue with you selling them for 10 on eBay! The issue is also much more complicated than "full licence" or "oem", as you seem to think.

I do not feel that this is the appropriate forum to discuss this though, as this is a 'for Sale' item, and a genuine one at that. I will therefore not be discussing this issue further on this forum.
