Buying Vista on eBay

I am fairly sure that some eBay traders will be selling US versions of vista to UK buyers at reasonably low prices when it is released.

Would it be legal and sensible to buy vista in this way?

As sensible as buying any other software off ebay

Sensible but I don't know at some of the prices I have seen. £70 for a home premium upgrade when the right price is £150. Maybe it's legitimate but I wouldn't take the chance at some of them.

Various apt cliches spring to mind: caveat emptor, and you pay peanuts, you get monkeys. I wouldn't risk it.

I thought it was probably not a good idea, but worth asking. Thanks for the replies
