Autodesk no support products

Guys, (& gals) do any of you know what the laws are for the use of old copies of software such as the Inventor 8 that is about to be put on the not
supported list? I was wondering if this is a way to have a not too old versioon to learn and play with legally without spending a fortune on a sw package that you will never use for any money making projects.
