My experience in the past has been that if the key is registered, you're stuck for online gaming. That's often the point in the registry process.

New laptop:
2.1 Ghz Core 2 Duo processor :: nVidia GT150m :: 15.6" HD LCD :: 4gb RAM :: 320gb HDD

New player: iPhone 4 32gb

Typically, like with UT3, it just un-registers the game copy at a different IP so you can type in the key again and use it at a different locations. Happens alot when I move my computer between my houses. GTAIV may not work the same way. Ask R*

You should be able to use the key if the original owner revoked the license on their computer first.
