When I brought photoshop cs3 and lightroom 4, I thought I owned them( the price was high enough), but now Adobe will not let me move my software from an old pc to a new one.  How is that legal?

You purchased a licence to use the software and still can on your old machine, as long as you keep it installed. 

What has been closed down is the activation servers for that 15 year old software, which has been replaced by 12 major versions and many more minor versions since.

Aside from what @davescm already stated: Are you even sure this obsolete version would work with the OS on your new computer? 

To me it seems some people who decide to stick with obsolete software because they don’t see a benefit in the newer fearures forget that compatibility with newer OS’ and hardware are »features«, too. (edited)

Hi Bernie

Welcome to this friendly forum.

Just so you know, you can get the latest version of Photoshop and updates as they become available plus Lightroom and some storage for about $10 a month. Why not download the seven-day free trial to see it on your brand new computer; there's lots of new features, and it will be compatible with your system.

quote  How is that legal?

By @Bernie25489876s6z0

 

It's legal because you agreed to the EULA just to install the software (like virtually every software product you purchased only a license (and that's all you purchased), to use.

Did you read this entirely?
