Is this legal? I mean you can just take their software and post it here for free?
Well, the cover even say pass it along to a friend. It only says not for retail sale. It'd be easy for them to make it a single activation. Just print a one-time use activation code on the mailer and done. They have to assume some kind of sharing is gonna happen.
I'm assuming this is the usual promo to get people to switch from TurboTax, hoping to get them hooked to their software or buy addon services.
Anyway, if you're concerned or want to pay a little something, disk posted here a low-cost offer in another thread that's pretty good already.
1. Here is the zip file that you need to download Download[share-byte.net]
