    don't get offended Mab but you're probably not doing Fred any favours asking for copies of Adobe products on here

    it is not illegal to sell trade of give away legally owned software.. is it a bit presumptious to suggest that someone offering anything such as software is selling pirated stuff? ,, yes?

    What if the above post said "selling a cutter" would someone think, "hey thats stolen'' and get a post as such?

    I have no problem with Mark's post. It's a normal function of a board like this to facilitate the legitimate transfer of such items.

    What Mark may not realize is that buying used will often put one in the position of owning an unsupported an non-upgradable copy of an application unless extra fees are paid to the author of the software.

    The post might have been better placed under Classified > Wanted.

    I think you'll find to do this legally you need to transfer the software license. This means the person selling the product can no longer upgrade their versions.

    I was not asking for anything illegal but I also realize its not uncommon for someone to buy out another shop and acquire additional copies of software and not have a need to upgrade all, that is why I asked. A friend purchased a bankrupt sign shop and upgraded his copy that came with the biz. We have AI and Corel at the office, I merely wanted my own copy to educate myself on it at home since it is more dominant than Corel these days. I do estimating and too many times the designers are busy when I need a simple drawing for a quote or to determine letter height. Thank you for the concern Strongbad. lol I need to check out that site haven't been there in a while.

    Good day!

    As I said no offence intended MAB
    its certainly not illegal to buy 2nd hand software
    just didn't want this site to go the way of some others with all sorts of nudge nudge wink wink trading going on
    good luck with your purchase
    Illustrator is definitely the industry standard & worth the learning curve

    Strongbad rocks!
