    Good day


    I have a second hand shop, where I buy second hand computers and re-sell them on after cleaning / fixing these computers. The problem is most of the time the OS has been pirated and or the sticker has been damaged or removed.


    Now I am trying to be above board when it comes to the re-sale of the computer and wanted to know if I bought a OEM license key with a sticker at a reduced rate if this was legal ?

    :)

  3. WINDOWS 10 OEM licence legal and not

    Hi Dmitriy,

    there are two different things.

    One is possibility to install OEM by yourself for your own use. In general this is prohibited by OEM system builder licence. AFAIK only two countries allow to do this.

    The second, OEM Windows may be distributed only in two forms: preinstalled on hardware and as OEM pack with DVD disk, sticker with product key, and system builder licence agreement at the back of envelope.

    If one buys something else he does not get Windows licence.

    It is legal to buy anything else, the keys, the stickers and so on but such purchase does not give a rights to use Windows, it will be illegal.

    Is it legal to use Windows 10 OEM Key on a custom built computer?

    Hi I am planing to buy a new computer. But a catch with it is that I need to get an Windows 10 key.

    I saw sites like Kinguin and G2A where they sell Windows 10 OEM keys for 15-20$.

    I just wanted to be sure if getting those keys and activating on my custom built pc is legal or not.
