Having downloaded Lion successfully I would now like to install it on other computers. Do I have to pay for each?

Nope. You are allowed to install on up to 10 I believe. Unless you are a business user in which case yes, you have to pay for each.

It will have deleted the installer when you installed it though, you might need to re-download. Take a look at the other Lion threads for more details on making a backup image.
I have plenty of more important things to do, if only I could bring myself to do them....

Actually I believe you're allowed to install on 3 as long as it's within the same household and under your direct control.

You may install Apps from the App Store on as many machines as you own or control.

I thought there was a limit of 10? No idea where I got that from though.

And am I right about business users? That came from an Applecare business rep.
