Can I use the new Lion OS X license on two machines, or do I have to buy one for each?

I have a few users that work with me that needed to reload Mountain Lion on their laptops. They had no connectivity so I let them borrow my bootable thumb drive.

Other than trusting their word.. What happens if they didn't actually buy a copy of ML? Does that mean that I violated my agreement?

I read more about the agreement here:


More specifically this:

“(i) to download, install, use, and run for personal, non-commercial use, one (1) copy of the Apple Software directly on each Apple-branded computer running OS X Lion or OS X Snow Leopard (“Mac computer”) that you own or control.”

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Also this should help if the first question wasn't helpful.. apple.stackexchange.com/questions/68493/… – bmike Oct 15 '12 at 21:33
  • I don't agree that this is an exact duplicate. My question is: how can I verify that someone has a license if they do not have connectivity? I'm being a good samaritan and providing them a physical copy of the software... Should I never provide other people with a copy then? – jason.dot.h Oct 16 '12 at 14:19
