You sure it was new? I had this problem with RF:G once, and went back to the store, only to find they had sold me a used RF:G for full price.

I have ver.16.02
I have to admit the case had been opened ,when I asked the clerk why he said they used the case for display out on the floor,and kept the disk in the back due to theft policy.Why didn;t they have more than one copy of the game?He stated the STALKER games were not a big seller,as PC games are not big sellers for Gamestop.A pretty legit explanation!

If the Case with Game Manual was out on the display floor for
everyone to see there's a good chance someone wrote down
the CD Key and then got online to download a Pirate version
of the game having your CD Key to make it look like it's valid.

Maybe a Store Employee is the guilty party.
To me a message of Invalid CD Key sounds
like it is already in use or possibly input incorrectly.
I'll give you the benefit of doubt that you typed it incorrectly.
Depending on what country you are in the Multiplayer may be Moot.

The CD key is printed on the back of the manual, so if it wasn't sealed in the box there's a good chance it comes from a used / returned copy (regardless of whether the disc itself has been used before).

Return it to the shop and ask for another copy or a refund. But also bear in mind that you probably won't find anyone playing MP anyway

Really? I've seen at least 100 people in CS multiplayer, only 10 or so in CoP though, and then they banned me. Although, they were all russian.
