You can still download the DevSuite from Oracle with an OTN license, so I don't see any legal trouble here if the OP uses it within the scope and limits of that license, independent of whereever he might have got it from.


As to you remarks regarding that Oracle products (or any software products) cannot be resold, you should probably be aware that here in the EU there have been some court trials to clarify that, indeed, you can legally sell "used" software licenses, given that you explicitly don't use your old license any more and destroy all physical copes. It is not legal for companies forbidding their customers to resell their licenses they don't use anymore. Please google for "Usedsoft EuGH".
