There was a recent thread about this you might be able to find. According to this this thread, there is currently no discovery edition for V.8, only "discovery mode", if you have purchased a copy and have yet to register (enter your livence key) after 14 days, and/or have no dongle installed.

There was a discovery edition - if you can find it on the internet- of V.7.5.

Exerpt from 2002 press release:

San Antonio, Texas -- July 23, 2002 -- NewTek, Inc., manufacturer of industry-leading 3D animation and video products, today announced the release of the LightWave 3D Discovery Edition, for Windows and Mac. This free trial version of NewTek’s award-winning software enables anyone with an interest in the powerful 3D graphics and animation capabilities of LightWave [7.5] to test-drive the product.

I didn't get the impression this person had the copy already and wanted to give someone a look or anything to that effect.
