If you bought a legitimate copy of the product, the product key comes with it. That is proof that you paid for the license to use it. And it is inappropriate to ask for somebody to provide one. If this is a legitimate copy and you just lost the key, you will need to either go back to who you bought it from, or provide proof of purchase to Microsoft.

If your need is not too intensive, you can get the free SQL Express version at

If you bought the package retail it is on the back of the DVD case.
If you bought it online from Microsoft the Key is emailed to you.
If you bought an OEM edition then it's on a sticker in the package.
