Buying a used copy of Photoshop CS4
 
So was looking around on craigslist and found this add for CS4 Design Premium:
GENUINE ADOBE CREATIVE SUITE 4 CS4 DESIGN PREMIUM FULL VERSION WINDOWS

I've never bought software used before and I was wondering if this would be safe?

I thought you couldn't sell computer software because its typically in the license agreement

If they don't "de-activate" it before uninstalling you are probably going to run into problems when you try to re-install. I would probably steer clear.:whistle:

tis true Gav.

The adobe workers are pretty good over the phone for overriding the re-activation process on the old workstation; (i had to do a re-load once after a PC crash) but who's to say that the person you are buying from wont pull some kinda bait-and-switch on you down the road.

I would probably steer clear too. THe only second-hand software i feel comfortable buying is from a company who is liquidating all of it's assets.

Alright thanks for the opinions guys. I'm just gonna avoid this.

That is the education version for sale and by the looks of it, they are trying to make a few bucks on it too, lol.

Can Secondary School students get discounts on Adobe software?
