(Excuse my English, is the google translator).
Because of the problems that I have faced for products from Adobe, I created this topic to expose my suggestion and listen your opinions and maybe, to know what Adobe has to say about it.
Lately, I decided to totally abandon software piracy, because in reality, we find that is a prejudice and lack of respect for the authors of their products and, of course, is less incentive to release better versions of software, since the majority is pirated Instead of buying.
I got in contact with Adobe, wondering if I can freely use the macromedia suite 8, and of course the answer was that I can not, because of the EULA, and I would buy it. I asked how can I buy it, since I thought that to be a discontinued version, could be very affordable price, and they said they do not sell the version 8 (logical).
In some countries, such as mine,that the reality of the salary is by far compared with the United States, with people enjoying a minimum wage of 170 USD.
And these people also are worthy human intelligence and willingness to study and develop applications, as well as people of the 1st world countries.
Now I ask: How can someone buy an Adobe product with prices that are sold? Design & Creative Suite Web Premium = $ 1,899???
I also understand that the products are top quality, there is no other product on the market can keep up with Adobe.
I think this is one reason why piracy has spread so uncontrolled in the world.
I do not agree with the violation of copyrights, but also do not agree with abuse of monopoly.
Why not create adobe lite versions for people with less ability to purchase their products?
For example, versions of creative suite design & premium lite, creative suite master collecion lite, and others, where the resources of the programs have limitations comparing with the full version.
So most people who receive the products illegally, and want to abandon piracy could regularize their situation and be entitled to purchase products from Adobe and they would conquer the world's simplest form.
What is your opinion about this ?
