I am going to buy an Autodesk Software, but my budget is very tight. Is it legal buying Autodesk Software from Soft Buy for commercial purpose?

This is not a legetimate way to buy Revit.  Revit 2009 is no longer a supported software and not able to be purchased.

one of my friend did some research on a similar website and their offer to sell Revit (and they were selling the latest version).

The Address, Phone Numbers were all found invalid.

That is correct they pop up just about as fast as they are shut down.  Just part of modern life.  :smileysad:
