    If you go on ebay you can find license keys for Windows, Office, Vmware the lot. The seller always claims they have the right to sell the key and ususlly puts legal waffle in the listing which obviously is effective as ebay cant ban their accounts. For bants I thought Id see if server 2016 keys had reached ebay yet and to my surprise there they were. One auction caught my attention as there wasnt really any legal fluff added.. https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/202065802175

    Is this seriously legal? Alot of these sellers will sell OEM keys and get around the legallity by claiming to sell the OEM mobo with the key, which I doubt even arrives.

    It's ebay of course it is not legal, that's assuming they are even the correct keys.

    But dont OEM keys legally have to be used on the OEM equipment they were originally on?

    You should hand yourself into the police tbh.

    All volume license keys which are getting ripped off or Technet Subscriptions that were abused back in the day hence why MS pulled that subscription.

    Plenty trials on offer so no need to purchase this kinda thing.

    Here here. Also if you want to play with something these days, most vendors do hands on labs or similar where a VM gets spun up for a set period of time with pointers on how to learn the product. All very cool
