It's not a grey area, they are being illegally redistributed.

archive.org used to have a ton of Lynda.com tuts eg Photoshop, Illustrator etc. Brilliant tuts, but obviously illegal to upload and link. They were deleted.

I still think the DR mirror is OK for dudes who have bought a laptop > machine goes bad > download + reload Win7. I can live with that. Lynda.com had a genuine grievance.

BTW, +1 for Lynda tuts. Top banana, as they say.

Why don't you think it works, it has worked for countless people already.
I don't know if it works or not but I'm influenced by comments like this (& others).

If it works most of the time then let someone make that statement and close the discussion.
Greg's tutorials had for most of it's life a direct link to digital river for the iso downloads
Since Microsoft removed D.R. it is not going to work without a iso to use thus this and a few other questions about getting a iso to use.
Most all that is left is going to Amazon for recovery media

Just so nobody gets confused.
The tutorial by Greg and Brink and others on various types of installs are still great tutorials if one has the proper media with Windows 7.
Millions have use those tutorial with great success.

A OEM/SLP key would never work except for the auto activation of the computer it was installed on at the factory.
Before things changed you could use the OEM key off the Microsoft Sticker that came on the computer.
That no longer works to get a proper download from the Microsoft download site.
