John needs to check with the school to see if this is "legal".

My company also gives its employees copies of MS SW to use -- but they clearly state that SW is for personal use only -- not to be sold or distributed.

John's school may have similar restrictions on SW they give to folks.

My question is, if my friend John gives his friend Tom a copy of Windows 7 and
John got it free from his school, will Tom get in trouble?

Not sure if you guys understand what I mean.
If not let me know please.
Tom needs to choose his friends more carefully!!
