I picked up TF2 when it became free. I want to be able to trade, and my friend got a copy of TF2 from the Potato Sack Pack. If I get that copy, will I get a premium account?

I think so, but I'm not sure, nor how I could test that. – Raven Dreamer Sep 10 '11 at 23:16
Why not just try it? Either you do and you have a premium account, or you don't and your friend's gift copy is pointless now that it's free. But I'm with @Raven, I bet it will get you a premium account – Dave McClelland Sep 10 '11 at 23:45
To add on to what the above commentators said, your best bet is just try it yourself. After which you can then post it as an answer to your own question, and get double the up votes. – Wipqozn Sep 11 '11 at 0:11

You will receive premium. See the TF2 FAQ.

Not only that, but you will receive the Proof of Purchase hat. – user2974 Sep 11 '11 at 1:29
