Going by what you have stated.. It is correct that use of pirated copy may lead to prosecution in the court of law. You can purchase the software from other stores selling legal software and as far as I understand, legality of the software is judged from its "Key number". So in case if you purchase the same then there is no use of purchasing the same from the companies outlet only. In case the company continues to harass and threaten you then you have a remedy to file a police complaint against them..
