Does anyone know what type of technology Apple uses in 10.3 to prevent users from purchasing one copy of Panther and installing it on like 20 machines?  I do not believe it uses any type of code or activation like an MS product but I was told it would not work...I am not looking to do this, I am just curious how they prevent it from happening in an invisible fashion.  Or, was I misinformed and it will work, you just should't do it because it is wrong and illegal?  I hope this question is not out of line.

There is no protection. Never has been on any Apple product. They rely on honesty.
