License # paste and Assisted Installs

In 15 on Mac OS X, I've noticed when you copy the license from the software license page into the install application, the license gets mixed up.  I've tried pasting it to a an editor and making sure it is pure text with no formatting, and then pasting back in the installer, and it still doesn't work.  Do other people see this too?  I just guessed it was some anti-piracy thing to force people to manually type license numbers which works even if its a pain. 

 

I'm at a facility with a lot of installs and was setting up the Assisted Install and put the license number in the text file for the Assisted Install and ran it and it too gibberish's up the license number.  Now this is a much bigger deal than individual installs. 

 

Is there some way to paste into the license field that doesn't mix up the license number?  And in particular, is there a way to get the Assisted Install to work without messing up the license number? 

 

Thanks for any suggestions.
