Maybe I have chosen the wrong words. I have read about it a couple of months ago. Could look for the article (written in German).

To resell things is legal, that's the main argument of the sellers of these licenses. But in this case is not guaranteed to be "valid".

The licenses are part of a corporate bulk, that didn't get fully used. The problem is... if the company that purchased these licenses had "problems" with Microsoft, and Microsoft does something with that bulk of licenses.... then the private people that have bought these cheap licenses would be affected too and can have problems with an unlicensed Windows after X time working fine.

If Microsoft ever "cancels" such a license bulk, or if the private people then get "reactivated" after that cancellation... is another point.


EDIT: Economically speaking... Probably still worth the try / risk

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
