How come Adobe puts their programs on the internet for free?

    A friend of mine was telling me that you can get all of Adobe's stuff
    for free on the internet, and sure enough he's right. I even found
    that new Adobe Creative Suit was available for free in the newsgroups.
    How come Adobe does this?

    If you downloaded Adobe Creative Suite from a newsgroup, then you have an
    illegal copy. You probably got it from a warz newsgroup. Adobe posts
    evaluation copies (expire in 30 days and have certain limitation).

    I see your one of those that uses "Easy News" to hide your identity.

    You sure made a lot of assumptions, but didn't answer my question.
    Thanks anyway.

    What assumptions were incorrect?

    As I previously stated, you can download an evaluation copy of Photoshop CS
    (or other Adobe products) from Adobe.

    Now, where did you "download" this supposed free, full version of Adobe
    Creative Suite?

    I did not download anything. I have no use for it, especially since I
    own a legit copy of Photoshop 7. I just verified that it was
    available.
    Wrong again Dick Tracey. There are many reasons to subscribe to
    Easynews other than to hide ones identity.

    Now, now. Don't interrupt the dumbass flaming the shithead.

    Two kook trolls going after it is about all the amusement they can provide
    anymore.

    But what you didn't verify was that Adobe had nothing to do with it.

    But that's why I asked the question to begin with, butthead.

    No, the programs are being posted in the binary newsgroups. I assumed
    it was Adobe doing it. Why would someone post their own copy and
    serial number?

    Not true - you said "why does Adobe do this" as if you already knew or
    assumed they were responsible for the postings.
