I have the Creative Suite CS3 Design Premium Education Version (NOT student version). When I upgrade my CS3 to the current CS6, the education license gets also upgraded to a commercial license right? When I did this upgrade, can I sell the software (the CS3 Edu + CS6 Upgrade together), i.e. on ebay and transfer the "new" commercial license of the CS6 to the buyer? Thanks in advance.
I don't think you can sell a license of educational software (teacher, student, any form) but to be sure you should contact the adobe education store directly to confirm. If you sell your standard license I have read on these forums that you must give up certain rights such as not being able to purchase adobe software in the future. But that I am not so sure about. Once again, contact Adobe Customer Service for the standard license questions if you cannot locate the EULA
I called the Adobe support, they said it is possible after the education version was upgraded, but only if both are sold together, because only both parts together build the commercial license. Now I am confused. Btw: the agent on the phone had to check this with someone, but after several minutes he said, that it is possible.
This is from the Adobe support chat, after a check with the next level departement:
Me: I don't want to want sell the previous version AND install the upgraded version. I want to sell the previous version (edu) AND the upgrade together. I don't want to use anything on my computer. I just want to buy the upgrade, to have a commercial license to be able to sell both together to one person. Because I know that I am not allowed to sell an education version. That's why I want to upgrade it to a commercial version.
S: Thank you for the information.
S: In this case, you can sell both the version to another person without any issues.
S: However, you need to follow the transfer of license policy.
S: Please click here to know the policy.
Me: So just to be clear now I am allowed to buy an upgrade to the CS6 for my CS3 education version. And I am allowed to sell the software after the upgrade from the education license to the commercial license) together (Cs3 edu + CS6 upgrade) to another person and transfer the license.
S: Yes, you are correct.
