    My Office 365 subscription has just expired after paying £79.99 last year. Do I have to buy it again to use Microsoft Word, Powerpoint, Excel etc.?

    (I have been using Microsoft Word for around 2 months since my subscription has expired, however, I can't use it anymore due to receiving a notification saying it's an "Unlicensed Product")

    Yup, afraid so. Office 365 is a subscription service so you have to renew each year. There is a slightly cheaper plan available if you only use a single computer, or you can pay the one off licence which is £120, but that doesn't include updates as far as I know.

    Just use Google Drive, or you can just use Microsoft office in trial version. It wont disable your software when trial period is expired.

    You can buy it from a re-seller for <£10 on ebay (eg). It's legit - afaik they taken licences from scrapped pcs. Microsoft have to allow resale under eu law.
