Want to bet? Read the license agreements you are forced to agree to in order to open the package, install the software, and/or launch it. You have no more right to re-sell their software than you do to photocopy copyrighted material or download music without paying for it. Difference is that it's not economically feasible to post a cop at every library photocopy machine. When it comes to Rosetta Stone or other $500 software titles, they'll do plenty to protect their intellectual property -- right down to shutting down e-Bay or other sites helping consumers bent on violating the copyright. Oh, and there's a few software trade groups out there that will offer $1,000+ bounties to those of us able and willing to help report violators. If you don't like the policy, don't buy the software, or write your own.

You are forgetting about activation. I bought a copy of Rossetta Stone. Some time later I spilt a cup of coffee over my laptop and the machine stopped working. I bought a new one and installed the programe in it but because I hadn't de-activated the language modules my original key wouldn't work any more.

I am in the same boat. Had to restore my hard drive after it failed. When I tried to use Rosetta Stone again it said I need to activate it. But my activation code won't work because it says I have already used it. They won't reset my code because I don't have the original receipt. $500 thrown away. What a waste.

I am in the same boat. In my case I spilt a glass of beer over my laptop which shorted it out and there was no way I could de-activate the program. I bought the program about 4 years ago at a stand they had in either Houston or Newark airports while I was waiting for a connection but who keeps receipts for that length of time.
