I am usually quiet on this list, but today I must speak out. I don't know how
you can sleep well at night, or not feel guilty with what you have done.
There are limits to suggestions on an open forum. Advising criminal activity
is one that should not be tolerated!

I am appalled that you would suggest to someone to commit an act of software
piracy on this list. It is illegal to buy someone's old software and then
upgrade to a newer version. When people sell their older version of a
software package, they retain the license for it because they have already
made the upgrade. Because of the "old" software laying around people will
sell it at a fraction of its original cost to recoup some of their
investment. This does not mean the buyer (of the old software) has legal
claims to it.

Beware of ancient software that you can purchase. If you don't get the
license with it, then you have an illegal copy.
