    Yeah, even shops like Software Etc. Guitar Center or Best Buy will tell you "since you opened it...it's yours" which is the pissoir! It's the reason I hate buying software anywhere.

    Would Adobe not help you guys with it?

    nope they wouldnt cause we didnt get it from them and they were pretty sure it was bogus......IIRC they gave the wife a bit of a discount to purchase it from them but it still wound up costing us more than if we had just bought it from them due to buying two different copies.....

    I've bought software from eBay without a hitch, but we all know that some % of the sellers are crooks. I'm not recommending you buy it that way because it's all about risk tolerance and how much you can save. You'll have to decide that for yourself and it's good (for you, not him) that Rattler can tell you about the down side of eBay. The only time I ever was ripped off was one of those side sales eBay warns people about. Instead of receiving the two disks I expected, I received one. But I've done a few others and they were as smooth as any legitimate transaction.

    your right Bruce, there are prolly plenty of legit sellers, but the guy we bought ours from had a good reputation and all that, im not sure how you can weed out the good from the bad.....if you know a way and your comfortable with it go ahead, but i for one will not be buying higher end software like Adobe's stuff off ebay.......games and the like where if im wrong im out $30 or so is one thing, but $300 plus is a hard pill to swallow......

    Yeah, I'm definitely an Ebay addict and not averse to shopping online. Heck, I bought my custom quad core desktop setup off Ebay a year or two ago after all. The only thing that sucks about it is that I asked for the XP-64 OS and I didn't know hardly anything I wanted to use works under the 64 bit OS but that was my dumb mistake. The seller did exactly as I asked and delivered my rather uncooperative baby in a week. lol! Now he's gonna help me downgrade it to XP-32 so I can use all my MIDI synthesizer stuff with it that'll be nice!

    But Rattlers exp. is exactly what I feared about the software.

    I suppose I could have theoretically gotten a bogus PC too from an unscrupulous seller. Or an empty PC case for 3K! That was taking 10 times the finacial risk but the seller had 10,000+ sales and spent a lotta his own money calling me from the time I inquired until I received it and was surfing online with it
