Default Is it legal to sel RC1?

Hi, I was just wondering. I've been seeing all these auctions on ebay for windows vista RC1, and I happen to have windows RC1 and want to sell it myself. Is it legal to sell it? If I do can I get into trouble?

well on a second note, on one of the auctions it says

Quote:
NOTE TO EBAY
These DVDS do NOT have 'not for resale' on them - I purchased these direct from Microsoft in the UK and can provide proof of purchase. When RC1 was released you could buy these direct but as it is now closed, I am offering this for sale for those who missed out (only 100K were offered throughout the world)

So than I can sell it correct? Because I need some more cash. I'll even start it out at what I paid for it, $5. I bought it, so technically its mine to sell correct? As with any software I buy?
