This company (link here (external link))sells software at ridiculously cheap prices. I know all about 'if it seems too good to be true, it probably isn't', but has anyone had any dealings with this company?

From their FAQ:

Why is the software so cheap?
The software is a copy on cd-r/dvd-r, it does not include a box or licence. It is the full version including activation instructions. The software can be used as a backup, a replacement or for personal use.

Yes it's too good to be true!

No, but if your expecting to get a fully working legal version of Photoshop I'd look elsewhere.

Its not to good to be true, since they only provide you with software and not a actual license, and of course they will help you "activate" it illegal.

Why is the software so cheap?
The software is a copy on cd-r/dvd-r, it does not include a box or licence. It is the full version including activation instructions. The software can be used as a backup, a replacement or for personal use.

How long does delivery take?

So, basically, you are getting an illegal but working and functional version of the software?

Two further questions -
1. How and why do they offer some software free?
2. Why don't the manufacturers stop them?
