[Jeremy Garchow] "Yes, it is why we have laws. Are you suggesting that Adobe is breaking a law, fixing prices, or gouging? If so, I'd like to hear about it."

Wasn't really aiming at Adobe at all. Was responding to your general statement that "theft is bad" with an equally general "not always."

As to Adobe, I have been a paying customer for years and will continue to be as I am a Cloud subscriber. Although I do think they can be pricey, I certainly am not accusing them of price gouging or monopoly.

I am seeing a lot of righteous indignation here (and this isn't necessarily directed at you, Jeremy). I was just being honest about my path into becoming a paying customer (a journey in which I am sure I am not alone despite the many loud moral judgements). I guess I should be blamed for violating the first rule of the internet: never confess to anything online.

My question was not about the morality, but the reality.
