    Mac Leopard License Key

    Hi, Im Mr. Brown

    I recently started a mac retail business and it has been working quite smoothly except for one issue, I recently bought the leopard expansion family pack to put on the computers i have sold. My problem is this, i have run out of license keys and they aren't exactly cheap to buy again, so is there any way i can create or find a keygen that will allow me to reproduce leopard license keys.

    For a couple of reasons:

    1) Leopard doesn't require a license key, at all, anywhere.
    2) You're running a business based off of software piracy -- for every computer you sell, you must purchase a separate Leopard license. You must also include that license (read: the Leopard CD/DVD and box) with the computer you sell. If you use one copy of Leopard to install on one machine, then that's all the use you get out of that copy of Leopard -- if you want to install Leopard on another machine, you must purchase another copy of Leopard.

    The family pack of Leopard also does not allow you to install Leopard on just any 5 computers -- they must be 5 computers residing within the same household. By using the Family Pack to install Leopard on one machine, which in turn is sold to someone, and is used again to install on another machine, which in turn is sold to someone else, you've just violated the license agreement, and (at least in the United States) broken a law (under the DMCA).

    That's how your original post is "amusing."

    I wish you all the luck in the world with your business, but in order to obtain help here in these forums, I highly suggest getting "legit" first.

    You also would probably get Apple products cheaper if you were an Official Apple Retail Dealer.

    Just to recap:

    1.) The Leopard Family Pack is for people in the same household. If you sell individual licenses or give them away for people to use in different households, you're committing fraud. Those people will be using unlicensed copies of Mac OS X in fact.

    2.) What kind of Macs are you buying and where do you get them that they don't come with Leopard pre-installed? Do you mean you're running a used-Mac shop somehow?

    Either way, we're not the place for all the illegal/half-legal stuff.
