I looked through the license but found nothing of that nature. Does someone know for sure what does happen?

I've heard faint rumors as well, but nothing concrete. Besides, I don't think they are allowed do that, even with the EULA stating it. And why would they want to? There is A LOT of computers with SP1. It's not like they could afford looking through them for illegal stuff.
