Any company that undercuts the "official" price set by the manufacturer is suspect.

It is well-known that MS has different pricing for Office in different countries; were it not that way, I doubt people in some poorer countries could afford Office. What they could be doing is purchasing licenses in a "cheap" country, and reselling them in a more "expensive" country.

It is probably legal. There is a good chance that this violates MS's licensing agreement, but is impossible to enforce - are they really going to cancel the license of someone who moves from a "cheap" country to an "expensive" country?
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
