I am really falling in love with Unity3D and would like to expand to the full licence just to unlock all of the power it can deliver. Looking at the shop, regular Unity Pro licence is $1500, so it costs more then I would ideally want to pay out(I understand its small money for game developing companies, but I am just indie guy who recently got back into game programming and Blender). I am wondering, from the licence and law perspective, is it allowed and possible to buy the Unity Pro licence second-hand from someone wanting to sell it and if yes, what precautions should be made?

Edit: on their website:
So, if you buy a 2nd-hand license on the black-market, it's exactly the same as if you were using a pirate copy (except some scammer has your money). You still don't have legal permission to be distributing games made with their product.
Unity licenses may not be sold and are otherwise are non-transferable.
