How to check the proof of ownership of W7 (Retail) License

Hi, if I have bought a windows 7 license key (retail version)
is there a way to proof / register the ownership of the License Key at microsoft.
Can my name be appeared/ be checked on the Microsoft website?

I purchase a License Key Online / Digital,
therefore there is no printed document identify the proof of ownership.

There are only three sources of legal (retail or OEM) Keys-with-download IN THE WORLD
1) Microsoft
2) Dell
3) Hewlett Packard.

ALL OTHERS ARE COUNTERFEIT.

Demand a refund, and report them to Microsoft Piracy.

I was told in a thread on the MS WGA forums by an MS WGA specialist staffer that, so far as he knew that was the case.
I'll try and find the thread.
