iLife registered on different apple account!

A friend of mine came back from Japan and brought me a macbook pro. But he registered everything on his name before I could say anything...now I can't update my iLife with my regular apple account.
Is there someway to revert this, or I'll have to ask for his password everytime I want to update it?
Also, there's an Angry Birds update available, but I can't update it - it's on his account as well - and I can't remove the '1' badge on my macstore icon.
How can I remove this 'update available' message? (angry birds is not even installed on my mac)
I'm using a late 2011 macbook pro 13", with lion installed.

To stop the App Store from showing you have updates, open the App Store, click on Purchases, and hover your cursor over to the right where an X button will appear. Click that and it'll act like you don't have that app anymore.
Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
