An important point, at least in Germany and maybe in other countries too, is the infos you get when the actual contract between customer (= you) and supplier (= retailer) is made. All you know is printed on the box. If the box does not talk about a "license" or a limitation of activations the publisher might get into trouble if he tries to enforce it.
Symantec for example explicitly sells a retail box with one 12 month license for Norton Internet Security. Valve on the other hand got into trouble because they forgot to mention that HL2 requires an internet connection. (->additional costs!)
