Not for free. But you could download a pirate copy, and legally doing nothing wrong IMO. After all you paid for one license of the software, not the physical disc it came on. If you've got DSL shouldn't take that long.
he wasn't talking about making a copy of yours, he meant "acquire" a copy from somewhere and use your legal serial number. I'm sure that's still technically illegal, but I'm also sure most would see it as morally correct and stupid to be illegal..
