I second that.
I just checked for After Effects. The US price for a full version is USD 999 (which would be CHF 909 at the current rate) but Adobe charges CHF 1'529.26 (!!!) - and I'm talking about the English version. In Switzerland we have a very moderate VAT of 8%, so that's no excuse either.
Come on Adobe, 50% more because we're not american??
I find this behaviour extremely customer unfriendly to be honest...It's a rip-off.
Adobe, you're killing very good products with your attitude...
