I am looking into purchasing a 3rd party product for doing dynamic date publishing using Indesign. The vendor is telling me in order to be complaint with Adobe I need to purchase an Indesign Server license even though the 3rd party application doesnt need it. It will basically sit on the shelf and collect dust. The vendor isnt even looking for us to purchase Indesign Server through, so its not like they are making any money.
Just doesnt make sense on why I would need to purchase it. I have tried calling Adobe sales reps numerous times and either no one knows the answer or I never get called back from the people who are supposed to know the answer.
I figured this was the best board to post this on, not sure if it would be better somewhere else.
Does anyone have any insight into this? Any response is greatly appreciated.
