bannedPermanent ban

I believe that you get a upgrade to lightroom when it comes out, so the answer would probably be no

You need to check the license agreement for the software.

Sometimes You can give away or sell your copy (not copies)and sometimes You can't.

If you only own 1 license you definately cannot give a copy to several persons. And if You pass on your license you must not use it yourself anymore.

You'r right corypolis, Adobe states that anyone who purchased RSP within a certian time frame will get a free download copy of Lightroom 1.0 when it becomes available. But I thought since they are different programs it shouldn't matter. I would like to distribute RSP to others. Maybe I 'll stir things up by asking Adobe!

That would be distributing piracy software.

Yes it does not matter that the software is discontinued. Adobe still have the copyright and unless they release if for free distribution it will be piracy to give it to other people. And since they do offer free upgrade to lightroom they will not release RSP for free distrubtion as that would be the same as giving lightroom away for free.
