However if you're <10 users and aren't using a server or anything, then I'd say just buy normal licenses. Although still not technically legal, it's more legal than using a TechNet subscription IMO.
Are you suggesting that any business requires a "special" license of MS software? I don't believe this is so, and while a business would not be permitted to use something like the 3 user "student" version of office, I'm pretty sure the regular (including OEM) license is completely within EULA for business use.
