Question about selling Windows 10 Pro licenses

I have three Windows 7 Pro licenses (with Keys) that I have since upgraded to Windows 10 Pro licenses.

It is legal (and compliant with the Microsoft TOS) to sell these licenses? I would create an Outlook Account and link the Windows 10 Pro license to that Outlook account and give any buyer both the Windows 7 key and the Windows 10 Pro outlook account. This would ensure the Buyer can install whichever version they want on their machine.

Thoughts on this? While it is inevitable that someone will simply respond "no" or "yes," I would ask that any responses provide something to backup the answer. Not just for my sake, but also for others who may be curious.
