I totaly understand the reason for cdkeys but listen to my situation. I caught my wife playing CoD on my pc (online) so i inatalled my CoD on to her pc with my cdkey we tryed to connect to a server i got in fine but the wife kept getting the cdkey in use message. i contacted ativision about our problem they basicly said that i have to buy my wife her own CoD to get a seperate cdkey i think that this is stupid what do i do when my son wants to play CoD on his pc 3 copys of the game thats alot of money. Surly there is a way they can permit duplicate cdkeys from the same ip address. well thats my rant for today does anyone know of a way around this problem?

as long as you're not playing CoD on both computers i dont see why its giving you that message
As for playing with the same CDKey from the same IP address.........it is possible to "mask" your IP, it is also not too difficult to "duplicate" an IP from a false location, these are old, tried and true internet hacks.........
I share an internet connection with 2 housemates (who are also part of my clan) so we share the same IP address. Never had a problem though.
Edit: oops, forgot. We do have different cd-keys, sorry
Although I've never tried (my brother can't run CoD), my router gives both of us the same IP to the internet (not just the local 192.168.0.xxx mask). Perhaps it may work...
If you ever want to play 2 or more versions of CoD on 2 or more PC's you've got to buy 2 or more versions of CoD, because if you try and install the same version on all the PC's it will always come up with CD Key in use. When you get 2 or more copies of the game, you'll have no problems what so ever.
