The whole legal/not legal can be ever so confusing, I know.
Not long ago I tried to figure out if software programs I no longer use could be given (without keeping a copy for myself) to a friend - legally - and finding the information was a bit of a mind-boggler for me. (In case others are wondering, apparently no one knows for sure).
Not to worry, DnDer, Moderators such as our KoanYorel will set us straight if we cross the line - gentle smile.

Contract with a LIAR (oops - Spelling error there - "Lawyer"; to ensure whether one can or cannot do such.)

Full retail Operating System licenses can be transferred to another system (be it virtual or physical) if the OS is removed from the original system (limited transfers for Vista). So if you had a retail full version XP installed on a system, and replaced it with a retail full version Vista, then the XP license is free again and can be transferred.
So... If I buy a copy of Windows XP for my home PC and decide "Hey I'm going to downgrade it to Vista" for what ever reason, can I use that unused license for Windows XP on a virtual machine?

If one bothered to ask a Solicitor,it would make it an expensive XP Licence.
I have to say I find it confusing as well there are many Grey Areas in respects to somethings and unknown Legal Loopholes in Areas as well, as Koan has said you can ask a Solicitor if not sure.
Always best to find out through a Solicitor.
We can only say it's not Legal and that's it, nothing wrong with asking a question it's the way we learn and can tell others.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life. You never know when one will leave you.
