    Difference is that it wasn't made by Microsoft, so it's an unauthorized copy. If the buyer decided to call Microsoft to report a bug or problem in the software, and M. asks for the serial number, and they find out that no such serial number exists, it will become evident that it's a copy, and you're ass is toast. The end.

    Almost all things from china = Fake/replica... that is why you are screwed. Microsoft and Adobe products are VERY hard to list on Ebay due to all the fakes going around.. i know very well from experience.. i wish you the best however

    OEM = Original Equipment Manufacturer, OEM software is supposed to be shipped with a new computer or shipped with hardware that is required for a PC to run, like a motherboard.. etc..
