Microsoft’s Windows 7 house party kits that include a Steve Ballmer "signature edition" of Windows 7 Ultimate was spotted on eBay; the auction was canceled at Microsoft’s request "many software components are limited from redistribution through "Not For Resale" or "Not For Retail Or OEM Distribution" licensing. They’re not complete, retail software packages, and are therefore not authorized for retail transactions such as eBay auctions." When auctioneer contacted, Microsoft allowed:
"Hello Mr. Elder,
We are in receipt of the additional information you provided regarding eBay auction #160368269963, in which you were offering Windows 7 Ultimate Signature Edition Party Pack. We have contacted eBay and notified them that Microsoft does not object to the reinstatement of your auction pending its further review of this matter.
