They can't do it. Because technically them deleting the software could be considered the same as them modifying the hardware. Since you own the hardware they cannot forcibly break it by removing the software that is stored on your equipment. Software is based on "License to use". They can terminate the license to use so by using the software you were committing copyright infringement, but terminating your right to use the software does not mean they are given the right to remove the software from your hardware.
