How do I activate my Ubuntu Desktop?

Asked by GLAT agent on 2019-08-29

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 (https://gitlab.com/glat-official/glat-server) set up.

Where could I purchase a license? What verify URL should I use?

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

Unlike LGA, it includes actual key server.

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.
Read http://www.linuxgenuineadvantage.org/faq/

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.
