I don't think they'll be able to "press charges". Perhaps they could assert that you sold the box spring and mattress or removed it to another location, and that could result in a theft charge or similar. However, it's unlikely an officer or judge would allow that, even as a private complaint. More likely than not, if they were to take action, they'd assert a breach of contract claim.

My colleagues are correct. Generally, inheritances as specific bequests are external to the marriage. You should get counsel, however, to be sure your rights are protected. Especially if the royalties are significant or fall into a potential exception.
As the other attorneys have written, it's probably not a good idea.

However, holding yourself out as a corporation, especially in the public eye, could jam you up.
No, it is generally illegal. Sometimes, software manufacturers/code designers will grant explicit permission to download for another platform, but they will usually provide the functionality to do so along with the initial purchase.
It may be tempting and you may feel as if you should download it or use it, but don't.
