That is all good and well - except when you copy it out and hand out
those copies to someone else. That is piracy.
Same with running a copy of XP on more than one computer, the license
which you bought along with the CD is for one computer only. Breaking
the license is breaking the law and yet again piracy. If you don't agree
, then change the law but don't break it.
It is like buying a book - the book is yours to do with as you wish -
except for copying the contents and passing the content off as yours -
that is plagiarisation. Same with a computer operating system or
program, you can do with the legal CD whatever you want - you cannot
copy it and pass it on as yours.

Not everyone agrees with my philosophy..been called everything because
of it..but I firmly believe that if I paid for it..it's mine and I can
do whatever I want with it..that includes throwing it in the
dumpster..making a chime out of it or giving it away..I wont sell it for
profit...but will sure give it as a birthday gift, or allow someone to
borrow it..Just like I would a movie cd or a tape.
I know many don't agree and MS would come unglued...But they have a long
way to go to try and make a thief out of me because I don't and will not
go out and buy another one to use on my computer in the other room..not
anymore than I would go out and buy another tape of my favorite song to
play on the car stereo..
