Um, no. You're focus is too narrow, open your mind a little. Lets say I have bought a retail box copy of Windows 7 Ultimate. I put it on my desktop pc. Then later, I decide to ditch the desktop and get a laptop instead. Why should I have to pay for yet another Windows license? If I already own a legitimate Windows license and install media, I should be allowed to use that, and not be forced into buying another license.

Why would you buy another license if the licensed you bought is retail price. Only the OEM that can't be transferred. For retail, you can always install to another PC or laptop as long as the other is not active anymore.
