Forum Question: Exact Copy of CD or DVD

My cousin wants me to make him a copy of Office 2008 for Mac. I told him I am using all 3 licenses that came with Home Edition. He’s not interested in any of my licenses keys. First, is this legal for me to make him a copy of the CD? How do I make it, as I don’t have Toast. I don’t want to give him one of my keys (all keys used on different Macs) because I heard if I am using Office, Microsoft would know via the key and if the same key was on, Microsoft would shut them both down.

    Yes, it is absolutely illegal for you to copy your Office 2008 CD and give it to your friend. He should buy his own, or use an alternative like OpenOffice if he doesn’t have the funds.

    Ok, thanks for the info. I will tell him to use Open Office.
