No, you couldn't - legally, unless you bought a new full license, and not an upgrade. A software upgrade is part of the actual license.
These behaviors telss that Adobe, after all, could be right.... :
For an upgrade you're correct. How much did an upgrade cost back then?
Adobe was definitely "right" in the business sense. It doesn't mean I have to like it.
