The programs loaded on your new machine are illegal and pirated unless the seller also gave you the original disks. I'm glad you got Migration Assistant to work for you, but I would for security reasons *strongly* recommend that you:

a. Upgrade to Mountain Lion using a newly-bought copy you purchase using YOUR iTunes account through the Mac App Store.
b. Once installed, use the Recovery partition to ERASE the boot drive's main partition and reinstall Mountain Lion "clean"
c. Then use Migration Assistant to pull over YOUR apps and data (yes, again).

Only THEN will the machine actually be legal and fully yours.
