    And if you have used one leaked MAK key, it may be validated in the beginning, but you can be sure that MS blacklist the key after some time. I think it took about one or two months from Windows 7 was released to they activated their WGA program. And it took almost a year before they blacklisted several thousand MSDN/Technet licenses that was sold and/or made available on the internet.
    Using a leaked key will always put you in the risk of one day get a "Non genuine" message, thats for both Windows 7 and Office 2010.

    It's hardly thinkable leaked OEM key gets blacklisted if thousands of legitim users are activated thru the same key. Think about these thousands of legit users as yours hostages.

    The OP used a MAK key, thats not an OEM key. A MAK key can be blacklisted, it has happend several times before, and will happen again. You'r talking about OEM SLP keys, and thats a different story.

    All,

    I know now. Why the product already marketed for sometime, the GAV for Office 2010 has not been done.
    MAK can be blacklisted, it seems the KMS server activation is more stable.

    to be perfectly honest i would imagine its only a matter of time before your MAK key gets blacklisted (unless you're lucky). My advice ...... buy a legit key or use KMS. ;)

    So true. Never trust a "wild" MAK key or Retail key. I have followed a leaked Windows 7 Enterprise key for some days now, and it has gone from 10.091 activations to 6.344 in 13 days. Actually strange that's MS has not blocked that key already. All that uses that key gets activated and "genuine" now, but as soon as MS blacklist that key, all goes "non genuine". The same with leaked Office 2010 keys also.

    I know what you mean. I had a key that was valid for 10 activations on 10 machines, used it four times. Before i knew the four machines i activated were non-genuine :(

    What's the fuss with blacklisted MAK key?

    First of all, if he can still activate office 2010 with that MAK key, it hasn't been blocked yet/ MS has not found out about it yet.

    Second, what if it get blacklisted? It's most likely that there won't be anything affect your activation status of Office. Unlike Windows'WGA, OGA is NOT delivered through windows update, and all the updates can be acquire through automatic update WITHOUT OGA. Infact, to get OOGA installed and check your office's genuine, you have to go MS website and install OGA yourself!

    Third, OK, i admit that some people used a pirate VL key of office and yet, they still go to the genuine site and installed OGA. What would happen? Okay, a IE windows appear, tell you that you are using non-genuine office and tell you to buy a key. Checked. What's next? Nothing! You can still use office and your office still stays activated! No nag screen, zip, none. At least that's the case with office 2007. It still has full fuctions like a genuine office, what's more you can ask about?

    guys, quit worrying!

    i'm sure daz will make something similar to the loader,
    something that can make office 2010 genuine.

    right, daz?

    Well, DAZ's work related to OEM activation. But none but the Starter edition of Office 2010 uses OEM activation.... :confused:

    No, if you have got a MAK key from MSDN/Technet or Microsoft or something like that, you will never be deactivated. But if this is a MAK key several other people have, and somebody share the key on the internet, then you can expect it be deactivated.

    Keys from MSDN/Technet are retail keys, not MAK keys.
    And, for the past 7 years, with office 2003, office 2007, MS didn't try to deactivate any office product, whether they pass OGA or not.

    If you have a Microsoft Volume Licensing agrement you can get MAK keys. And you get MAK keys to other programs like Windows Server 2008/R2 and Windows 7 Enterprise/Pro from Technet/MSDN...
