    Default Buying 2nd hand Photoshop: is it possiblr to change the owership?

    Hi all,
    Have anyone bought a 2nd hand photoshop software before?

    How do you change the copyright ownership with Adobe? I wanted to get another set of Photoshop CS2 and was hoping to buy a 2nd hand set of the photoshop 7 or CS and than buy the upgrade ( cheaper this way I guess ) but was advise that it may not be easy to change the ownership at Adobe side. Just having a written copy from the seller to say that he/she have sold software is not good enough as Adobe may not recognize it.

    Can anyone here provide some advise?

    Thanks in advance.

    you can install your pscs2 on 2 computers. this is stated in adobe website. the clause is that you cannot use them at the same time.

    Most software licenses are only a right/license to use the software, you do not own it. If you go thru the detailed license agreement, you will also find that this right is not normally transferable. This kind of means that there is normally no point in buying 2nd hand software.

    Most software companies only require you to hand in media in cases of upgrades, without checking ownership. So ....

    I am not familiar with the exact laws and T&Cs, but using common sense, NO, You cannot legally buy or use second hand software.

    As written in some of the terms of use, You do not buy the product. You buy the license to use it for yourself. You should be able to instal one in the office and one at home but, make sure you are the only one using both copies.

    At the last ad agency I worked in, there was photoshop software installed in most of the machines, but some could not open photoshop sometimes and would display an error message saying that it is being used at the moment by another machine.

    If the agency only bought license or softwares for 3 machines, then only three machines can use at one time. It doesn't matter how many machines were installed with the software.

    I bought PS CS2 at $1049, cheapest liao, search high and low. At funan 3rd or 4th level, green signboard i think.

    Correct, we pay so much just for the license, so upgrade pay $300 plus.
