I found 2 sites offering keys for windows 7: "windows7serial.net" and "http://www.genuinekey.com/" Is this legal? If this is not legal is there any articles or ways to get discount windows 7 keys?

Nope, these guys are almost certainly selling keys they got from Technet or MSDN. If cheap is what you are after, the best you can do is get an OEM version, or buy a TechNet Standard subscription for yourself. You also get lots of other goodies with it, including Office, Visio, Project, etc.

There is no such thing as cheap Windows 7, unless you are an MCP you can get a minimal discount.

I'm not familiar with how tech net or MSDN works. If they get valid keys form them what would be the risk of going this way?

I agree... I have found many sites doing this, and key sellers on eBay. It seems more legit than a piracy type key generators. I'm afraid to give them my money, but I would like to know how they are getting keys. It would be nice if they were legit. Any feedback I see (on eBay or on these sites) act as if no one is having issues. I was hoping Microsoft had recently developed another cheaper way to distribute keys.

The terms of the license agreement clearly state that the subscription only belongs to the person/company that paid for it. It is illegal to re-sell those keys.
