I purchase a full version of Adobe Master Collection CS5 on eBay and registered it with Adobe. I am now using the Creative Cloud and do not need it anymore but apparently Adobe has a rule that if you purchased it from eBay and/or it was discounted by a high margin that you can not transfer the registration. Does this prevent me from selling it to a someone who does not mind that they can not register it?
I guess I am also asking - can someone use a licensed version of the Master Collection - install it on their computer and have full functionality - but not register it?
>install it on their computer and have full functionality - but not register it
For 30 days in trial mode... and then it will stop working... the programs MUST be registered and activated to continue after 30 days
License Transfer http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/152/tn_15281.html
So if I was willing to give them my Adobe ID where the products were registered then I can sell them? That way there is no transfer of license, it remains licensed to the same Adobe ID.
No. Your AdobeID is yours alone - letting anyone else use it would breach your license.
There is no special limitation on transfer of software that was legally purchased from a reseller, even if it was discounted - with the exception of educational and volume licenses. You're only allowed to transfer four licenses in your lifetime (that's to stop people setting themselves up as a bulk reseller) but the same license can be transferred more than once.
>give them my Adobe ID
Oh wow!!! Talk about making identity theft easy... you would give your ID away!
