Torrenting Photo/Video Editing Software
I was just wondering how many of you guys actually buy your photo/video editing software opposed to torrenting it. I always feel bad when i torrent but i really just cant afford them
Torrenting and masturbation run along the same vein. You know you could probably spend money and get it elsewhere but you cant help yourself by helping yourself even if you may feel bad in the end.
If you plan on making money from what you create with that software, I'd advise you buy it.
Otherwise, pirate away.
I'd have to imagine Adobe is fully aware of what its doing with its software and ease of piracy. They turn a blind eye to piracy among hobbyists and students, so that they will learn their software. Then, when those users transition to the business world, they are already conformable with Adobe software, so they will purchase that, as opposed to competing programs.
Check out some of my work!
I never got why they don't do a full suite for like one or two hundred bucks, and restrict it to personal use? It doesn't seem much harder then what they're doing now with this dumb subscription service ($240 a year?) and i think most people would be much more inclined to own a legit version for that price, versus a pirated verson
