Yeah, then why not challenge them. Office is confirm cannot because it's mentioned even on the box not for commercial usage (long time never buy office also, last bought also 2003 version, not sure how that has changed or not).

want to use under business, please get pro or enterprise edition, home/ oem version is for home use only example for gaming, while the education version is while you're still a student in college or university.

your workers might have reported you to BSA.

Your argument is no longer valid since there are many home businesses nowadays. Anyone can run online business from their home nowadays.

Home businesses is still business. So you still cannot use Windows Home for home businesses (read it as Windows Home was stated clearly that it cannot be use for business related premises). Unless your home business is totally non-register businesses. If you register your businesses, you must use Windows Pro. Even non-profit organization are not allow to use Windows Home based on Microsoft.

Even Microsoft themselves never mentioned home cannot be used for businesses. Proved it to argue your case. For Office, they actually mentioned it which is why no one argued. You can search eula bla2 but it was never mentioned.

Happened to the company I worked for many years ago too. Our case was we are interior design company, using non legit ms windows, autocad etc. Kena raid because our sinkalan lady director invited a sales person to do 3dmax
Demo in the office. She saw many pc running with autocad & 3D max. Today noon visit tomorrow noon straight police come with warrant, bsa, kpdnkk, ms observer and some reporters. No negotiations, paid fine, bought software front the whistleblower company. Almost half a million, remember the directors all sold cars and some house to pay the fine. And yes, ms home cannot use for business. We were required to join the kpdnkk seminar about piracy after that (all staff) as part of fine.

Today Microsoft ambush to my office to inspect pirated Windows 10 activation.

All of my computer is Windows 10 Home that I bought.

They said Windows 10 Home is not allowed in Business Environment, also they offer discount summons if I bought Windows 10 Pro from them.

Which part of EULA mention Windows Home edition is illegal use in Business?
