So, I buy a Windows key from the biggest store front on the net, I pay for it with my PayPal account connected to my credit card, I put it on my computer connected to my internet and my IP address, I then use said internet connection to activate said key on Microsoft's servers.
For someone that condones fraudulent activity, This scummy person isn't doing a great job of hiding it.
If it activates, Then it's legal, So don't call me scum for legitimately buying something and activating the way Microsoft wants me to activate it.

Well,I have never had any of my 2 quid copies from Ebay stop working, And forgive me for not feeling sorry for the $1 trillion company that is Microsoft losing a couple of quid to me.
This is almost certainly a volume key, a MSDN or an OEM key and very unlikely to be a valid legal retail licences copy of Windows.

The fact it can it can only be used with a clean installation suggests it’s an OEM key.

It will work, but be aware it could be shut out in the future.

I have heard that windows 10 works fine without activation - there are only a limited number of restrictions which is the non-removable water mark in desktop, and the lack of option to change the desktop background picture.

Correct. Of you're buying as a gaming PC or basic productivity I can't really see any need to activate.

Apart from for the A E S T H E T I C.

Hardly anyone should need to buy these dodgy keys, pretty much any PC/laptop that is up to 10 years old will have a Windows licence already, just download Windows 10 for free from the Microsoft website and when it prompts you to activate enter the Windows 7 key from the sticker on your PC (or if it is newer and had a Windows 8 licence in the BIOS it should just pick it up) - you can still activate Windows 10 with a Windows 7 key despite the free upgrade offer officially having ended. Be sure to install the same edition of Windows 10 (Home or pro) as your Windows 7 key is for.

These keys could well be Windows 7 keys from the stickers on scrapped PCs, as that is the cheapest way to get a Windows 10 licence if you don't have one (way to check would be to buy one and see if Windows 7 accepts it as being valid, as a true Windows 10 key wouldn't be accepted by 7).

If it is an OEM key from Germany then it's legal to use as Microsoft lost the case against the court for reusing such keys. You can use a registry hack to remove the watermark if you dont activate Windows.

Not quite. The case result was only valid in Germany for software sold in the German market. It involved software sold with no restrictions on it, and only applies to the original purchaser of the software.
The case has never been tested in UK law, so until someone does it’s legally unclear.


OEM software is sold tied to hardware as a term of its sale. That term must have been accepted by the original purchaser. It cannot be legally sold on except with the hardware it was tied to.

These resellers weren't most probably not the original purchaser and are unlikely to have the legal right to resell it on.


By all means if you want to buy these keys feel free but they are unlikely to be legitimate licences, even if they work.

Not a storefront its a marketplace as they aren't actually selling the goods. 'if it activates then its legal' So if someone palms off a dodgy tenner to a shop and they accept it that tenner is legal, aye OK. Scum logoc right there.
I'll tell you something to all of you: 3 years ago I bought a Windows 10 pro license key from playasia. Used then, and since then I have installed windows on at least 20 further occasions. I have several PCs and I play with them experimenting things and virtual machines, hackintosh or linux, so my systems needs reinstalling from scratch pretty often. Since then, every time I install a fresh copy of windows, connect to the internet, login to my Microsoft account and Windows 10 says, "your Windows is activated with a key linked to your account ". No kidding. It costed me £8, I don't neither need to input the key when I install, all windows get activated automatically after installation.

Nobody is questioning whether the keys work, more often than not they do, but software licensing is centered on Right To Use. You have none. The end.

(and citing Bill Gates' net worth doesn't change that)

I don't know how you can be "staggered". The software companies cannot expect Joe Public to read and digest their huge licensing statements. I have worked in IT for over 30 years and would never claim to have understood all the nuances of modern licences.
