GLAT (GNU/Linux Activation Technologies) is a project to make sure that given GNU/Linux copy is genuine. I want to activate it.
Your distribution should have Key Server ( set up.

It is not Linux Genuine Advantage. Is it still hoax?

Unlike LGA, it includes actual key server.

Look at

# Copyright (C) 2007 Linux Genuine Advantage #
# Copyright (C) 2019 GNU/Linux Activation Technologies #

LGA and GLAT is the same.

LGA source code could be used because it is useful in this case.

So, I want to ask:
* Do GNU Project and Linux Foundation actually run 'root key servers'?
* Does Canonical run any 'key servers' and is it possible/required to activate Ubuntu Desktop?
* Is it hoax?

LGA code was newer designed to be useful - on the contrary.

GLAT removed login restrictions from the source, but logging is left.
They have real key server (see glat-server repository).

It means, they made it useful.

Also, howtotell repository includes COA and product key label. Does Canonical sell those?

I mean they include examples. Does Canonical sell COAs and/or product key labels with Ubuntu logos?

Thanks Manfred Hampl, that solved my question.
