Is it true that when using Adobe, there is a 500 form limit before a fine is levied by Adobe? That means if you have more that 500 people complete an application, you can be fined.
There is no specific fine, but it is possible to be in violation of the Acrobat License Agreement. If Adobe somehow discovers that you are in violation of the agreement, they may seek legal recourse.
Regarding the limit, it applies if you choose to Reader-enable a form and distribute it to more than 500 recipients. If you do, you can use data from no more than 500 instances of the enabled form that have been returned to you, including hardcopies. If you use data from 500 or fewer returned forms, or distribute to 500 or fewer recipients, you won't be in violation of this aspect if the agreement.
You can avoid this concern by using LiveCycle Reader Extensions to Reader-enable your forms instead of Acrobat, but it can be expensive.
