    How to verify that a product key is legitimate

      This was also posted in the InDesign forum. Please feel free to delete the other post as this seems the better forum to ask.


      An employee at our company recently purchased several digital copies of InDesign 5.5 from an online company. When she tried to register the product key, it told her that the key was already registered and could not be registered again. She reached out to me and I researched and found out the company was known for selling illegitimate software.


      Is there a way for me to verify if a product key is legitimate. At this point, this sale is very fishy since, 1, the cost of the license was only $400 each, and 2, they seem to have an unlimited supply for a product that is no longer produced or supported by Adobe.


      Any help or direction would helpful.
