Are these licenses legal?

New Contributor

Recently I started looking for a license for windows 11. I have come across a lot of sites like this and I wonder if the licenses sold on such sites are really safe and legal? Anyone have any experiences?

Those websites are illegal resellers and sellers, only buy from authentic websites like Microsoft.
Avoid such sites, you may loose your hard-earned money.

@ProKnow  I myself bought a license on a similar site some time ago and have no prolbems. besides, I know this site and it is safe. I used to buy games there and everything was fine.

You're recommended to buy Windows license only from Microsoft and its authorized resellers only, if you really want a genuine license.

@Kapil Arya I DON'T KNOW the site, but many places sell excess oem licences very cheap and they are legal. Bought a few and all passed the ms certification or whatever it is called. Ebay Germany often has them for under $20 and if they don't work PayPal or ebay will refund you, just pay by PayPal.

I had the experience with a cheap office reg code it was fake and failed, got my money back.
