    can i just point out this Free 1 Year Microsoft TechNet Plus Subscription (Consumer Services Professional Pilot) My Digital Life

    which explains why some people have a 1/1/1900 expiration date

    If it's anything like the Partner Program, then no... Once your subscription expires you are required to either renew your subscription or destroy all copies, uninstall, etc...

    If you ignored that requirement you would be in breach of licensing requirements and be liable for legal action. In short, same as Warez..

    FWIW, I've found the Partner Program to be much more useful in many respects but you do need to be a company to get it.

    The servers are being absolutely hammered now. Everyone and their dog is trying to get at the software as it's all over the internet now. It's even on hotukdealsdotcom.

    +1rep thanks tech_guy.

    EDIT: Ignore this link, it won't play without valid US postal code. - I think the EMEA one is the best bet which is working fine for me in FF3 now.
    if it takes you to the US page just go to the end of the url where it says

    LocaleCode=en-us

    and change that to

    LocaleCode=en-uk

    then press enter

    Reading about it, the reason why you can't get product keys is because your subscriptions have been disabled because you did not complete the survey (it is closed).
