But I pay for all the software I use. Especially the ones I make money with.

Somehow this doesn't sound quite right to me... ;)

That's why you have 30 days to try it for free from Adobe.

Then use DPP (comes free with your camera), GIMP (free/open-source program with plenty of tutorials available on the internet)....or Photoshop Elements, which is currently available for $50 at several places. There are several other image editing programs which cost considerably less than CS5 and are more than capable for 99.9% of photographers.

No matter what angle somebody uses in an attempt to justify or rationalize it, stealing/pirating software is wrong. There's no right way to do a wrong thing.

Yeah, that came out wrong. The "especially" was an afterthought. I remembered a design buddy that always wanted me to hook him up with apps he'd use in his studio. I, and many of my peers, used to this sort of thing to evaluate before buying. Most of us bought, at least. But this guy never did, and used his ill-gained software in his booming design business. So the concept of making money with the software you get illegally really stuck with me. It's one thing to use something a few times a year for fun, but another to use for making money. That was my point...

SHorton: I have not been so lucky as to travel there, maybe someday. But I do work with a lot of Chinese. They are not stupid. They know. It is a choice.

Nope, not stupid. There was a time when I don't think anyone in China bought software, including schools. Now they do. I think the concept of intellectual property just isn't in the terminology of the culture. My Chinese wife told me that only the poor were involved in counterfeit products, but she later told me about her wealthy banker cousin doing Northface products, and i called her out on it. She was originally defending a friend (Counterfeit Mark) who couldn't get a job in China due to being slightly crippled, so sold 70% defective and 100% bootleg video games. When he got kicked off eBay a dozen times, he got religion and starting selling fishing lures direct from wholesalers. The top 200 sellers on eBay for this are all him.

I just jumped on the opportunity to make a joke. :D

I've been following this thread only to take delight from the fact that I don't have to depend on Adobe.
