4th April 2010, 10:49 PM
My brother in law use to be a Mac user, but has recently strated working in the microsoft IT industry, he has given me some software that he use to use on an old iMac he had that no longer works, but he has already registered it under his name. I'm just wondering if now that I have the software can i install it on my computer or would that infringe some type of copywrite/pirate law?

For example, he has installed iWork and Final Cut Studio on an old iMac.. but says the computer is thrashed and unrepairable now, so I can have the software. Can I install it on my computer wth no hastles?

Should I just install it and not register it or something or will there be some red tape according to the Serial Code?

Should be fine as long as they are not on the same network.

Most things would transfer okay. and many of these programs allow installs on more than 1 machine such as laptop/desktop.
