Hey dude, where's my Sharepoint licence?

Due to a bug, the MOSS 2007 SP2 installer resets the product expiration date to 180 days, as if it was a trial installation.

Microsoft is already working on a hotfix. In the meantime, you can still install SP2 and then manually re-enter the Product ID number (PID) on the "Convert License Type" page in Central Administration. Product ID numbers (PIDs) can be retrieved by logging into the Volume Licensing Service Center.

All this was announced yesterday by the Sharepoint Team. You can read the full article here.
