A Of course this is all speculation for now as there is no confirmation that the iWork apps don't phone home to verify that they’re validly installed. We should also mention that Apple has never required a license for its iLife suite, long delivered free on Macs, so perhaps the company is opting for a similar strategy with iWork and may decide to bundle it with new Macs at some point. Users who download the trial version of iWork '09 from Apple’s website will still need to enter a serial number.
