Key activation != licensing.
Just because you can move it to another machine or P2V it without
needing to re-activate it doesn't mean you're licensed to use it
either in a VM or on a new machine.
Microsoft licensing can be quite opaque, so if you're doing this in a
corporate environment make sure you get the appropriate advise to
ensure you're properly licensed.
