I signed up as a developer and purchased a Powerbook through their hardware purchase store. The result? Two copies of OS X. Cool.

Is it safe for me to sell the copy of OS X that ADC sent to me? I can't see anything wrong with it (since I purchased it, technically), but I don't want Mr. Jobs lobbing any lawsuit grenades my way...

no, of course not. you did not purchase OS X. You purchased an ADC account which came with a contract and software that has not for resale printed right on it.

Neither the disks nor the holder have 'not for resale' printed on them anywhere, even in the fine print...

despite that, i would say its still not allowed under the contract/agreement you signed. but, of course, the chance of getting caught is slim and the chance of them caring is even slimmer.

Read your ADC contract very carefully. I do believe you'd be in violation if you sold that software.
