    So if they were and are going to pull a move like that, they'd have done it already. If and when they ask for proof of enrollment, I'll send em' a copy of my diplomas & transcripts...

    I accidentally bought 2 copies. I wanted to cancel one and called and they said itll be canceled. Nope, i got billed for 2 and got 2 keys. I want to get rid of a home premium key now.

    FLH, call them and ask them if you can resell it legally or get a refund.

    Ham it up about what that 30 dollars means to you, but only a bit.

    Re: Windows 7 - 30$ for students

    Since I received a $912 Microsoft settlement voucher a few years back it is clear to me I have bought more than my fair share of MS software ($1000's of dollars) over the last 20+ years and I doubt they would make an issue over one semester considering my buying history of MS software. I am in there database for all the software I have purchased over the years and what schools I have attended. I would not call this pirating...who are you the MS police!
