  2. A few years ago I looked on ebay for Paint Shop Pro, I was looking
    for 6 but found someone selling CDs of 7 for $20 plus $3 shipping. I
    had a list of programs, all around the same price. He used to send me
    updated emails (with the lists) and had a disclaimer on saying it was
    legal to have a copy of a program AS A BACKUP and this is how he was
    selling them.
    I don't know if he's still around, I haven't seen any emails for a
    long time.
    My point, look on ebay. There is also a way they legally sell
    licensed software if they bundle it with a computer part, so it might
    say "comes with a computer part of our choice" (a cord, or something)
    I was once given a link to a place that sells software at half-price
    if you are a student (or know someone who could get it for you)
    Don't know how you feel about file sharing, but Shareaza, Kazza_lite,
    Limewire, etc have them all for free. Make sure it's really a file and
    not a virus (going by the size of it, and scanning it after it
    downloads) and should have serial number with it.

    Someone on a computer tech help board told me about file sharing one
    time (the moderator deleted it, but the person sent it to me privately,
    after) I didn't even know what it was.

    The way I feel is, I am a low income person and not making any money
    with the software (and not copying it to resell) just trying to learn
    A fair price for PhotoShop might be free (this is the smart-ass remark
    you asked for ) (LOL)

    If you look on ebay you can end up paying a fair price for Photoshop which
    will most likely be stolen, just make sure you buy from a power seller and
    you should be alright.

    It is legal to make a backup copy of software.

    It is illegal to sell it. The terms of Adobe's license agreement are
    quite clear; you may transfer your copy of Photoshop provided you do not
    keep any copies yourself.

    What he was doing is illegal; pretty straightforward, really.

    What version of PS are you using, Carrie? I am just curious.

    Sure was illegal! Even if one was allowed to make a backup copy
    legally... Selling is not backing up! A backup copy is simply a copy you
    store in case you damage the original accidentally. You can then use the

  8. What if you don't have a CD-writer, and the only way to get a backup of
    your software is to buy a backup for a small fee from a seller? This is
    why 'backup' copies of many copies of software can be sold without the
    seller being shut down.

    No. The seller does not get shut down because the seller does not appear
    on Adobe's radar.

    The law allows you to make a backup; it does not allow you to give it to
    someone else for archival purposes. If you do not have a CD recorder,
    you can go to Kinko's and use theirs, or you can give your original
    factory CD to your buddy who has a CD recorder and let him make a backup
    for you, provided you take back the original and all copies. You can not
    buy a recorded CD from someone who is making and selling hundreds of
    copies of *his* original disc.

    Of course, the entire myth about "backup copies" is utterly destroyed
    when you realize that those so-called "backup copies" come with a serial
    number--which is clearly and blatantly a violation of the licensing
