Just do like I did - call a store, any store, then call the online Apple store to verify.
This is really the way that software should work - Do you hear me Parallels?????
They were almost certainly wrong. This is what the license agreement says:
B. iWork Single User License. This License allows you to install and use one copy of the Apple Software (whether trial or full version) on a single Apple-
labeled computer at a time. This License does not allow the Apple Software to exist on more than one computer at a time, and you may not make the Apple
Software available over a network where it could be used by multiple computers at the same time. You may make one copy of the Apple Software in
machine-readable form for backup purposes only; provided that the backup copy must include all copyright or other proprietary notices contained on the
C. iWork Family Pack License. This License allows you to install and use one copy of the Apple Software on up to a maximum of five (5) Apple-labeled
computers at a time as long as those computers are located in the same household and used by persons who occupy that same household. By "household"
we mean a person or persons sharing the same housing unit such as a home, apartment, mobile home or condominium. This license does not extend to
students who reside at a separate on-campus location or to business or commercial users. You may not make the Apple Software available over a network.
I personally don't care, and I'm not trying to be the Apple Software license gestapo. I can't imagine anyone thinking the original poster would be a software pirate in that situation, and frankly I doubt Apple would win the case if they tried to pursue it (not that they ever would, but just hypothetically).
But I think it's clear what the license actually says, and it doesn't say what those employees said.
