This may be a ridiculous question, but back to the
definition of a single "user..."

A former company let me take software home to install
on my personal computer. Our IT department was rabid
against illegal installations and yet they assured me
that, since I often worked at home and needed the same
software I enjoyed on my desktop at work, I was not
breaking any laws because both computers would not be
running at the same time. Does anyone know if there is
any truth to this?
