Hey there.

You should probably avoid the whole license transfer all together.

You say he is in the U.K so if he has a different power supply...I will guess you are in North America.

Anyways, over the last 2 years a bunch of global policies have been in place when it comes to Digital Media...and you probably seen tons of post about this on the forums lately too.

With him being in the U.K, his gamertag is more than likely a U.K account too. When he comes over he will be able to recover his account to your console, play your games and even unlock some achievements.

Another thing to note is that he will be using a U.K account in North America (the console will know this instantly) and this would give him access to his default Market Place. So even if he has purchased content, the chances are very high that he would receive an error when trying to redownload those items...and if he doesnt get an error while downloading, the error might pop up when you try to launch the game. Since a lot of the regional laws are different, XBL would monitor your I.P address to make sure it matches the accounts region.

So not only would you have you done a Transfer for nothing, you would have also used up your transfer for the allotted timed...so if something were to happen to your console and you need to perform a License Transfer onto you new console, you would have to wait 6 months or more before you are able to do so again.

The license transfer will not get you banned.  It's people who abuse the system to illegally gain access to unpurchased content that get banned.  So all other issues aside if your cousin is going to be staying by you for 4+ months feel free to do a license transfer.  If it's a shorter duration then s/he won't be able to transfer the license back to his/her home console when s/he goes back to their home.

 

However, as was explained earlier his/her Microsoft account will be acknowledged as being from the UK and there may be some unexpected issues when downloading UK content to a console with a Swiss IP address.  The UK account could change it's region to Sweden--Microsoft imposes a limitation of one migration every 3 months--that may help out with certain license issues too but there still would be not guarantee since you're moving everything to a different country.

If you are using the transfer because you are replacing your own console, that's fine.

If you are using the transfer to make content usable for your friend and his console, then you can get banned for even one. That is illegal file sharing.
