We have a saying here in Germany: "Wer viel fragt, geht viel irre." Meaning the more you ask, the more you get confused. The simple legal interpretation is, that what is not explicitly precluded/ exempted in any sort of contract is considered as never having been part of this contract and thus nil and void. While going on at some length about the secondary install, neither the edu FAQ nor the EULA make any mention of what your primary computer actually needs to be or where it must be located. So for all intents and purposes a computer provided by a company where you intern could be considered just that as long as the license you install on it can only be used by you, meaning no other person can use it under a differtent user account on the same machine, which is technically perfectly doable by eitehr managing the Activation/ Adobe ID yourself or using the operating system's user privileges and file permissions to prevent access to e.g. the license store folders. Beyond that, you cannot expect any 100% definite answer, only taking this to court on a case by case basis could, but I guess that's not the point in the first place. People do weird things with their licenses all the time and depending on where in the world you live or even use a program at any given time, half of that stuff may be invalid, regardless. The only personal observation I will make here: A company that is dependent on a student's own PS license is probably not a place I would consider a good place for getting my career started...
I'll take it to court then! I kid. Seriously though, I imagined this to be the case, thanks for clarifying the legal 'grayness' of the situation.
So, I guess it's fine for me to install the CS suite on my work computer as no one else will be using it. Sweet.
Thanks for the reply, I really appreciate the long response.
