Why shouldn’t I steal their software? Adobe are quite happy to steal my money just because I’m British


Sorry for the long title but short of using a throwaway comment like “Adobe are thieving bastards” it’s the best I could do.

My point is (one that has been raised many times before, I’m sure) that I’m trying to work out how I can gather the funds to buy myself Adobe CS3 Web Premium. I would like to use this because it really is, in my mind the best tool set for the job I would like to do. Whilst researching the product and wiping the sweat off my brow, I came across this web page detailing how Adobe are ripping people off just because they live in Europe… More so if they are in the UK particularly.

The product is expensive… I know this and was just about to accept it and try to find the money. Now I’m not so keen.

This actually makes me want to find a cracked version… Something which I would not normally do.

Maybe I should just go to the Pirate Bay and see what they can offer me for nothing.

If that’s not karma, I don’t know what is!
