    Hey guys I have a few windows 7 professional keys lying around unused (I got them for free from a promotion last year). I was thinking about selling some of them, but want some facts about legality. Is it legal to sell unused/untouched keys? If so, is $175 a good price per key? I have both 32 bit and 64 bit keys, and I also have the ISO file which I downloaded from the promotion site (so I can burn it to a bootable DVD).

    I would say that Microsoft would say that selling a promotional key is against thier rules. Are they going to send the audit team after you, I doubt it.

    It's just like people selling xbox live free trials, not really supposed to do it but they do.

    It is against the Microsoft EULA (therefore against the law) to sell a key without a genuine disk to go with it, yes.

    Funny story, when there was that whole Windows launch party at home promotion going on, "hosts" who received their signed ultimate copies of windows 7 put em up on ebay. How?

    Brand New BIC pen with free signed copy of Windows 7. Bidding starts at $150.


    And just so you know, keys work regardless of 32bit or 64bit last I checked.

    Don't do that here. You should never make a thread or reply to one if your main purpose is to increase your post count.
