    So I've been browsing around for some expensive software at a cheap price (i.e. AutoCAD). I found this website:

    http://d-softwarehouse.com/

    I'm curious as to the legitimacy to this website and the legality of it? Basically they're selling software at a fraction of the price. For example AutoCAD is around $5000 - $6000 per seat, and they sell it for around $150. They explain this by saying they purchase from overstock, auctions, closeouts, going out of business sells, etc.

    I'm not sure about this. I need something legal so I was wondering if maybe anyone had experience with this site or one similar.

    Thanks.

    It's a cliché but...If something is too good to be true, then it probably is.

    Is this for work or home?

    I'd advise you buy at a student discount rate. These may very well be high grade knockoffs from China (cds screen printed and documentation photocopied)
