Two neighbours and myself wish to purchase MS Office 2010. Is there any reason why we should'nt buy the three licence edition and put a copy on each of our PC's?

No.

Yes - It is for 3 users in the same household.

Oh dear. Two answers so far and they contradict one another. More thoughts?

Not that sure myself but would have thought that it would cover family or friends.

Woolwell is correct

This from the website - note last sentence

It's not that difficult to check MS Office and MS Office FAQ'a

Thanks all. Looks like Sea Urchin has hit the nail on the head. Might be difficult for MS to administer the policy though?

What on earth does it matter, if you and your neighbors want to share a 3 license edition then go ahead. I doubt if anyone is going to come a knocking at your door.LOL.

  Woolwell 13:07 PM 09 Mar 12

Might it cause update problems apart from the moral issue?
