Microsoft Office for mac install question

So, over a year ago I bought MS office 08 for mac through my school (nice discount). So just tonight I told my friend, who recently bought a mac, that he could come over and install MSoffice because it says I have 3 installs. so he installs it, and then starts getting messages that this copy is licensed to my name. We said well, I hope we don't have to type a paper at the same time. Now he's at home, and says its working fine, we both have word open, with the internet connected.
so why did it give us these messages? should i be worried about us both having it open at the same time?

John is very correct. That is totally against Microsoft's EULA. The Home Student version of Office is quite affordable and I would suggest your friend purchase his own copy. It could very well cause issues with you and Microsoft, but even if it says nothing more it's not right.
I am going to close this thread as it's in violation of the Community Guidelines here at Mac Forums, plus there is nothing more that can be said to help you in what you are doing....Dennis
