    Recently there has been some debate on the legality on the buying and selling of Microsoft activation key's. Luckily for us Microsoft are quite clear about this:

    Any threads or posts relating to the selling of keys will either be edited or removed as spam.

    This is the correct policy and will be emphasized in our anti-piracy portion of our Terms of Service. Thank you, @kemical and @Trouble for researching and emphasizing this issue further.
