Thread: Software Piracy

  1. #1
    just a quick question for everyone who downloads software. Is there a way you can actually get tracked down by downloading it? I'm very tempted to download Photoshop 7, but kind of hesitant to know if Adobe would ever be able to find out and track me down. When using a cracked serial number or some kind of key, does that reflect to anyone (Adobe in particular) that you've downloaded a hacked version? Also, are you eligible for updates to the product by using an illegal serial number? YOu normally have to register it to get updates, but does that work with a cracked program? Any responses appreciated.

    Man, if you have Macintosh and you'll connect to Internet, they'll find you within few minutes...but when using PC, there's nothing to be aware of. Go and download whatever you want but don't do it with stabile IP (or host mask)... It's better from dial-up, because it has everytime new IP, so almost no one can find you...

    use stuff like spybot, go online with your firewall up and open the software, it will soon let you know. Unsure for the updates Don't be to greedy!!!

    Hey there Berryman

    I hear you, you are a smart individual who is looking to save some cash like the all of us

    Photoshop v7.0 $609.00 US
    Photoshop Upgrade $149.00 US
    Photoshop Prices as of today by Adobe.com

    Downloading from K++ $Priceless$

    Do you really have $758.00 US Dollars to shell out for a photo-editing software? If so, go for it.
    Or you can do as I did, K++ has it readily available for download at approximately 164MBs. Update that resolves some bugs, etc. is about 12 mbs
    Although, it's not neccessary for function unless you plan to use some of their really advanced features. Find your self a keygen and the update shall install like mine.

    Been Using it for 4 months now.
    Happy Downloading and don't be scared! Be a Man!

    No wonder there's so much piracy, these prices are ridiculous for the average working person
