Yep.
Every single Adobe program on our computers is pirated, as well as AutoCad and a few other applications on there.
My question is if this info happened to get to someone of higher authority, what would happen? Cause this is already pretty well-known among the computer dorks at the school

Everyone at school would hate you for eating the budget and getting the school in trouble with the law.

How did you figure it out?


How much do you dislike your school?


I pirated Photoshop, so I couldn't really get mad if someone else did too.

Because being a dick and killing your school's budget is always a good idea

I'm sure most people on here who have adobe run pirated versions too.

I hate my school, and they're all key-gen'd programs.

The school would hate him, not the students. chances are the students would love to see the administration get in trouble.

edit:

they would be in pretty deep shit too, since adobe offers discounts to schools and our TAX money is paying for it. so basically, our tax money is paying for whatever the **** they want to spend instead of legal versions of these adobe programs

Yeah, but I was under the impression that most schools got adobe products super cheap anyways. Mine did at least.

TS, I'll just post this again in clearer words.


They are using OUR tax money for something other than educational programs. For all we know, our money is going into a brand new car for the principal. Tell the higher ups. And by higher ups, I mean the school board.

Absolutely. To think otherwise would be foolish.

Cool, so it's OK to steal if you do it for educational purposes. Guess I wont bother buying all those expensive textbooks next trimester then.

It's not stealing. It's comparable to getting photocopies instead of buying the book, imo.

Don't tell the higher ups, but confront the admin and ask for proof of where the money is going. Hopefully they aren't pocketing the cash.

Uh, yes, it is stealing. I honestly don't care if they're doing it or not, but to say it's not stealing is just plain fucking idiotic.

Adobe would probably just issue the school a "site license" for a very small fee. Maybe even free? Many software companies allow schools to use their programs free or for small fees, because it allows students exposure to the programs. The tend to want to have those programs available to them in a business environment or buy them for home use. That leads to more sales demand.
