Yer I would think it is, I just quoted what was on maplins site.
Waiting for Amazon to bring the price down to this on Prime Day like last year.
Anyone knows how long you are allowed before activating. My subscription runs out in few months -and since is a top deal- I would like to buy and activate in few months
Thanks

Should be fine and I think you can stack up to three years.

Mind you I cant work out how I order it, there no buy button once you select a store with stock
I’m pretty sure I’ve stacked almost 5 years before.

Only available in store

Sorry, deal posting newbie but for about £10, I could buy office 2016 Pro with a lifetime license.

They will stop supporting Office 2016 at some point, but they couldn't stop it working, but with 365, they might simply stop licensing it.

Those aren’t legit licenses though AFAIK, they’re people selling on bulk licenses

You mean what used to be called Coporate licenses. At one time, Microsoft and Ebay used to come down hard on sellers and resellers of any cheap licenses on Ebay, but now it seems they no longer care and everyone is selling licenses with few feedback complaints fromn buyers
cracking price

You should be sorry.
I paid £41.99 in April 2017 from Amazon for this and then again in July 2017 as a top-up for another year.

Good price for it if you can find one in store. Heated.

And "lifetime" licenses will be for a year variant, not Office 365, and they will most likely be stolen development or MSDN licenses, or be KeyGen made ones. Corporate licenses usually need a Key Server to validate the key every so often (usually 30 days) or the software will go into reduced functionality mode.

These keys WILL stop working after a while, how long that while is depends how many people they sell the codes to and if Microsoft notice and block any given key. That said by the time they stop it will be far past the 890 days to get a refund by paypal.

If you want a "free" office suite use Open Office or Libre office,

Well fortunately maybe, I have enough 'real licences'
But I've bought a few Windows licences which have never stopped working. That did use ti happen pre Windows 7 and licences never seemed to appear on Ebay or they were soon removed. They were often stolen coporate licences or others. But now they are everywhere. I did have a problem with one which I bought for under £3 for Windows 10, I rang up M$, who asked where I got it from, checked it was legitimate then came in over the network and installed it for me

I've no wish to lecture people, however a licence activation is not the same as a legal licence to use. OEM Windows keys taken off old computers will activate, even if you have to call Microsoft, but that does not make them legally valid.

Many of the "lifetime" licences for office come with a set user name and password that you cannot change, a glaring sign they are not legit. The other usual comment is the office licences were scrapped when a PC upgraded. No company will "scrap" a £300 windows licence when they replace a new PC, they'll transfer it to the new PC of the employee, not pay out again.

I'd just rather see people don't give money to the fraudsters thinking they are getting Office cheap, when in fact its just stolen and will at some point deactivate.

I've said much the same but it's wasted on most people, they usually don't actually care if it's legitimate or not if it only costs £5. I do get annoyed that people fall for the 'recycled office licence' - as you say, no IT department would scrap a PC with a 2016 office licence on it... more to the point even if they did they'd scrub/remove the hard drive so where did the recycler get the product key from?! office doesn't come with a sticker anymore.

Well actually it does in the UK, without going into great detail, UK law has always allowed you to resell something which you have bought. And you have bought a licence. It the US it's always been different. Unfortunately (IIRC) the sellers of these second-hand licences don't have the money to fight Microsoft in court. There were a few cases which actually finished the companies concerned. One I knew was selling second-hand laptops with the original operating system installed. He went part of the way to court but simply couldn't afford to go further. So from that point on people stopped selling second-hand computers or parts with licences so I can't really understand why they've come back given MS's connection with Ebay.
Anyone can speculate. Licences sold to big businesses couldn't be activated by MS servers and so were not resellable. It the early days, Xp, they didn't need to be activated and required different disks

You have bought a non transferrable licence to use the software.

Yes you may have a right to sell that licence on, but as the terms of the license that you agreed to on purchase may (usually for the cheaper OEM software versions) say its not transferrable, then that right may not exist. Retail software is allowed to be transferred OEM usually not.

Selling a 2nd hand laptop with the OS that came with it is fine, its the same OS as supplied with the PC, Putting a differnet OS, or selling the OEM OS separately to the laptop and thats different.,

There was a case in the EU about UsedSoft and Oracle licences, but as far as I know as its never been challenged in the UK, so its never made it on to UK law, or set any precedents.

Whatever you buy in the Uk is subject to Uk law, not EU law not Microsofts 'Law'. It must be so. Other counties or manufacturers can't just impose their 'rules' /laws on us. THe EU can of course but I think it still has to be agreed by the UK pariament. Whatever you agree to when you use their software doesn't matter (of course) otherwise they could make you legally responsible for anything.

Absolutely correct, and under UK law you agreed to terms of a licence before you used the software. You do have the right to return it for a refund if you do not agree, but you cant accept the terms and the use the software and then change your mind.

One term of the licence for OEM software is its not transferable so you can't then sell it on afterwards.

So by your reasoning I can go hire a car today and then sell it as I don't need to consider the terms of the contract?
