    I am selling Adobe Photoshop 7.0 Full Retail Version for Windows. I am
    selling this software because I don't need it anymore and I need money
    to upgrade my computer.

    Before you contact me, there are some things you should know first.
    What I'm selling is a backup disc of the original CD that I created
    for my own security purposes. I will, of course, be selling my
    registration number for this software so that you can register it in
    your name and upgrade it when the time comes.

    Please be aware that this is not pirated software. I am willing to
    sell this software at a price of $170, but I will also accept the
    highest offer that I receive. This is a huge discount on the $700.00
    retail price that you'd normally pay for this same software in a
    store.

    The only difference is that this doesn't come with the original box or
    manuals. I will give you a complete refund if you're not satisfied
    with the software, provided that you return the backup disc to me.

    Send me an email if you're interested.

    Yes it is. Plus, it doesn't come with a manual.
    You are not allowed to create "backup copies".

    Somewhere around 11/1/03 2:59 PM, MRyan typed wildly with reckless abandon:
    I'm selling a brand new Lexus that I don't need any more. The drivers
    side window is broken and the stereing column is all taken apart because
    I lost my keys. I can't provide a title with it at this time, but I
    assure you I own this car legally. The VIN is ground off for some
    reason, but i re-engraved it with my Dremel. The price is cheap... just
    2000 dollars. This is a great discount from it's 50,000 sticker, which
    is still on it, by the way. If you're interested, give a call. Cash only
    please.

    He's a thief, and this thread is over. Go ahead and have the last word - your
    hairsplitting is pathetic.

    I'm just curious, does it matter if it is a backup copy or original copy.
    You are paying for a legal license and you don't care if it is a backup cd
    or not. As long as the license is legal you are OK to use the program
    legally. Let's say you download a copy from the internet and got the
    license by phone then you should be ok to use the program legally. One more
    example; go to www.pricewatch.com and they sell only license for Windows XP
    and no original CD and no manual and as you can see it is legal. M'I
    wrong?

    I know Adobe has a form someplace on their site for transferring ownership.
    If the person filled it out I would guess it would be ok because then Adobe
    would recognize the buyer as the new owner. That agreement also makes the
    seller promise to give or destroy all copies not transferred.

    That said I wouldn't touch a backup copy with ten foot pole. But, then I
    wouldn't buy used software. Too many possible ways to get screwed. Either by
    the seller or the software company because the software company doesn't have
    to let you do anything with it including transferring the license.

    Why get so worked up about it. There are worse things in the world.

    He's not selling a legal license, and you don't get a receipt.
    It's two frauds for the price of one sale. All you have is his word.

    If the offer was legit, he'd have a manual, the original CD, probably
    also the box. It's not the theft, its the stupidity. The childlike
    contortions that people are offering as excuses are just incredible.

    It's so obvious. You wouldn't hide a stolen cookie behind your back and
    then not expect to get caught. Why try the same thing with a warez CD?

    Oh - quite correct!

    The quickie answer is that the responder was childishly focusing on an
    error on my part to misdirect the issue, which was software piracy. I feel
    strongly about software piracy and the puerile excuses used to justify it.

    But I'm done now. =)

    Wait!!! Is that the vehicle parked next to the bridge in Brooklyn that I
    have for sale?
    Until you sell the Lexus I'd like to use it as a billboard. Of course I
    could pay you for the favor with Monopoly money. I don't have a use for the
    money anymore and you could leave it in the glovebox of the vehicle.

    So Adobe gave you permission to transfer the liscense using a back up disk??
    Gee, how many of these disks do you have?? Not to mention the serial
    probably would be blocked if someone even attempted to register it.
    Nope, you wouldn't buy a back-up disk in a store.
    Back room possibly, but not a store.
    Full retail version without a manual.. .
    I'm sure someone at Adobe found this quite interesting.
    Are you related to Artie?
