How does Windows 7 licensing work for running the OS as Virtual Machines?

I have Windows 7, 3 cd-keys. I use one on this PC, but i want to have a win7 virtual machine in virtualbox (that can go on internet). Is it gonna bring me down another key?

To legally register an install of Windows 7, you'll need to use up a key, even in a virtual machine such as virtualbox. –  jakev Sep 11 '12 at 22:44

Yes, it will use a key since you need one licence/key per installation. Not one per computer.
