What can be bad getting from eBay?
It's cheap enough to make it worthwhile.

Just check the seller ratings and see how many of that particular license they sold.

I personally have had a good experience with getting from eBay.

Now, is this how it usually works? How can I know what I am about to download from that link?
I always assumed I would download office directly from Microsoft, and just enter the product key.
But when I try that I get a message that the key is for the volume license of office, which is not currently installed.

If anyone can help me out here.

To download MS Office with with a volume license, you need to log in to the volume licensing website. So my guess is that (assuming it's legit) they downloaded it to their computer and then uploaded it to google drive for whoever purchased. But who knows...
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Is there anyway to inspect a link if it contains viruses?

My head's spinning. I'd say if you can buy for cheap on eBay, then there's no points in reading that article.

That guy is basically buying a key that's licensed for 10 users, let's say, and is using it for way more than that. So you're basically buying stolen goods.

Both are probably theft or unethical, no need to pay if you can do it for free. Assuming you're ok with the ethics.

Not sure how the first half of your sentence works with the second half.

He’s saying - once you’re stealing or doing something unethical, why pay someone on eBay to achieve the same result.

So I went ahead and downloaded it, (The link above didn't work, seller provided a new link and it never asked me to put in the key...) it seems to be running fine, How can I make sure my computer is safe and not infected?
Is running a full scan with Windows defender good enough?

Thanks.
