Well, Odoo marketplace claims you are buying the module for 8.0, also
says the module is proprietary, not AGPL. The question was, can the
seller apply that licence in the first place?

If they have some arrangement with Odoo that lets them do it (although
other emails suggest that used to be the case around the release of 6.1
but not any more), does that put the buyer at risk instead? And if Odoo
know that the buyer can't legally use that module but sell it to them
anyway?
