Nope, this is different; the HUP is a program with certain employers
where you can buy a fully licensed copy of Office for $20 or $25 -- you
get a CD, license, and key, and you own the disk. I've used the program
twice (2003 and 2007 ver) and love it.

I remember years ago when people could use officially-licensed software
Microsoft. The restrictions were that the software was normally used as
part of regular work and the user was an employee. I'm sure that all of
other conditions you mention applied too. I think that employers also
needed to be a part of the program, but I'm not sure. I became familiar
with the program during a couple of contracts, one with the state.
wasn't a charge and I don't recall if home users could keep a copy of
software. I think home users just had access to loaner disks and not
own copies.
