As does the XO in the Marvell firmware, an important point to remember.

I don't believe that it would be legal for OLPC to stop anyone.  If I am not
allowed to sell something that I have legally purchased to someone else,
that is extremely unethical.  In fact only DRM for Imaginary Property has
usage terms like that.

All that that point means is that there will be no tax break and wont be
specifically to persons with reseller numbers or some such.

However, I don't believe that the 'give many' would allow you to 'give' them
to yourself.
