i only have one copy of MS Office 2003 Pro. I don't have the CD because it was pre-installed on my laptop. SO i suppose i'm only allowed one installed copy for that version. Anyway if i connect the laptop to pc can i use office on my desktop pc? Will it be legal?

There are verisons of Microsft Office that work over a LAN but you would need that verison and a add-on licence per seat. And alternative is Open Office 2.0. It will create and read all MS Office files, including Word, Excel, Access, PowerPoint, from Office 4.5 to the current verison. This freeware.
I hope this helps.

Also if you own microsoft office on cd you are allowed to install it on 3 computers and you have to buy add-on liscenses for any more... or buy another copy for another 3 computers.

So acklan 350 for 3 so 11 that would be 4x350 1400 bucks (BTW This is CAD). You were right it's always software that get's you afterwards...

could i some how copy and paste the installed office from the laptop and put it on the PC or would that be illegal it is professional and says you can have it on up to 3 machines only because i don't have the disc that i can't install it.

Open office is awsome... has all the options that Microsoft Office has (maybe missing a few... but hey it's free).

I use it on all my machines...

Hope you like it
