Office 365 home premium - how do I tell businesses it's not for them?

I know people say that office 365 home premium is for homes and up to 5 devices there.  that's legal.  supposedly, it's not for business use?  but if you go to their home premium site, where does it say it's not for business?  

it talks about it being best for families


but where's it say it isn't even allowed for bueinsses?  likely in the eula.  BUt I looked and didn't see it and if they are so good at hiding that fact, why do we have to play microsoft's police for them?

Because if you don't have proper licensing the business can be hit with very large fines. (Read tens of thousands of dollars per violation)

As far as to where or why Office 365 isn't for businesses is beyond me. It may very well be legal to use as a business. I don't know why they wouldn't want companies paying for dozens of subscriptions rather than upgrading single licenses every few years.

Yeah, people say that it's not for business but I can't find it on the Microsoft website to warn businesses not to use it. I look like a moron saying that but can't substantiate it
This article says it was solely offered to businesses in the beta phase...


Just some added information to think about.
