If you have a legitimate CDkey, the problem may be caused by your Internet Service. Network stack (too much data traffic on your connection network) causes the CD key to be transmitted incorrectly to the authenticatiing servers - hence it tells you that its already in use.

Things you can try:

1. turn off any firewalls you have unitl after you have connected to a server. Since Firewalls slow down your data transfer, turning them off temporarily may help.

If you dont have a COD minimiser, run the game in a small window (not in full screen mode). This is si that you can access your Windows desktop to turn the firewall on again

2. Try using a server client like All Seeing Eye or XFire (both free to download). Since you connect to their scanning servers first, they can help authenticate you faster.

3. turn off any unwanted services like autoupdates. Reducing the burden on your pc may help you get faster data transfer since the cpu works more efficently.
