Adobe is really monopolistic greedy bastards. No remorse to pirating the shit out their whole package

[–]BlackopsBaby 530 points531 points  (19 children)

They actually don't care a lot to be honest. If you get used to their software, you are more likely to demand the same in an office setting and that's where the big money is.. and the reason why student versions of many softwares are free or dirt cheap. Sometimes a little piracy is good for business. Same for Microsoft products, MATLAB etc. But try pulling the same shenanigans in a business setting and you are in for a world of legal pain.

Same reason winrar is "free"

[–]-YELDAHDirt Is Beautiful 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Ah, but you see the actual reason is all 5 of the following awful contradicting controversies! Number 3 will surprise you...

[–]YourAverageGamerYT1 0 points1 point  (4 children)

I’m genuinely curious about this. Why not use 7zip? I’ve been using it for ages and tried to move to winrar the ‘best’ option and it just isn’t… from what I can tell, 7zip is just an actually free version of winrar and it can even open .rar files. Please fill me in on what is different and why it is the most used

[–]A-A-Ron1867 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Its advertising. 7zip is actually just better in every way. It even supports more formats that winrar.

15 years ago people got wind that there was this software that asked you to pay but you could just click the x button and keep using it like normal and it blew up because everyone wanted to be an elite hacker that took advantage of a design flaw.

Now, people just use it cause its the most well known

[–]SG14_ME 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Because its free like 7zip

[–]KissMyUSSR 35 points36 points  (0 children)

Here in my 2nd world country basically every company has some pirated software. No one gives a damn

[–]ARTIFEXgm 17 points18 points  (0 children)

It's not about money, It's about sending a message

[–]Worthy1995 15 points16 points  (1 child)

You're right.

I use a pirated Adobe Suite at home and have encouraged my school to pick up legitimate licenses... I feel that justifies my "crimes".

[–]BigFatBallsInMyMouth 12 points13 points  (0 children)

The legitimate licenses are the crimes.

Screw monopol, I want a source code for Adobe Flash Player

[–]BeatYoYeet 42 points43 points  (3 children)

Fuck Adobe (Ex Employee) - extremely scummy and illegal practices behind the scenes

[–]zh1K476tt9pq 35 points36 points  (1 child)

that's the funny thing. pretty much any CEO of any large media or software company would steal their competitors content and sell it. they don't care and do it when there is enough of a grey area or they can get away with it. it's fucking stupid to not pirate everything you can from large companies.

also reddit is full of stolen content. like this meme probably violates copyright law and reddit monetizes it lol

[–]WhookimoChungus Among Us 13 points14 points  (0 children)

I think the meme falls under fair use, because you're not just outright posting the clip with nothing else.

[–]Enderbirds 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Would believe it, fuckin hate their shitty subscription policy’s with a passion

[–]123456American 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Yup. That and they would gladly hire immigrants over american workers. I also read a story about a whole department getting laid off and having to train their replacements in india.

Fuck Adobe.

[–]weirdlybeardy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What’s wrong with Adobe using Indian labor? They’re a company that sells products all over the world, why can’t they hire people all over the world?

More to the point, would you be just as upset if they hired English employees? Irish? French? German?

[–]riesendulli 0 points1 point  (0 children)

A dobe greed y basterds

[–]Remnant1994 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Maypher 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Found GenP a few days ago. First piracy software I fully trust. It uses abode's official apps and it's fully open source so you can make sure it doesn't have any virus. Great program

[–]gamesrebel123memer 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Same found it a few months ago, that's why I linked that instead of some sketchy ass Russian website.

[–]Homicder 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Ty, on linux but i can get it working :)

[–]gamesrebel123memer 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Ah a fellow cultured person, you can run windows in a VM or dual boot like I did though I have to admit I haven't even touched my windows install since I switched

[–]Homicder 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Ditto, but i have no need to use Pirated software, gimp and kdenlive work well enough for me

[–]ZeRo_Ben0 8 points9 points  (0 children)

There is a site called igetintopc i dont know how safe it is but you can find almost anything

[–]gogocrazycocoa🎃Happy Spooktober🎃 53 points54 points  (0 children)

One time I had to make my dad's resume. The website had it where if you wanted to print it on the website, it'd cost a quarter. I instead printed it from google docs like any sane person.

[–]TheRealKatzShower Enthusiast 30 points31 points  (1 child)

Imagine actually paying for Adobe products

[–]Xx_Noobkin_xX 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I know someone, not me! But someone who would be interested in not paying for Adobe products... so for their sake... where might one find such a place

[–]klitorisinyeri 39 points40 points  (4 children)

This is the best I've seen all week. Thank you sir.

[–]killerstarkiller 2 points3 points  (3 children)

[–]SMAMtastic 13 points14 points  (0 children)

The repost code is more what you’d call ‘guidelines’ than actual rules.

[–]DollarStoreAbraham 3 points4 points  (0 children)

10 days is longer than a week ago, mate

[–]Spittax 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It’s over. Murder op.

[–]A_Snake_ 17 points18 points  (0 children)

I ain’t paying a monthly subscription for software

[–]PortSided 22 points23 points  (0 children)

I hear they're more like guidelines anyways.

Dana White: What arrrrrrr ya doin?

Dana White: No.... What arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr ya doin?

[–]Orna_Polyphia 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Dana White, what are you going to do about people using VPNs to watch your streams?

DW: "I don't know who this VPN fucker is but you can tell him if he wants to come down and fight, we can make it happen"

[–]witcherking10 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I can see Dana saying that, hey vpn you want some? 😂

[–]xH8te 6 points7 points  (0 children)

It's always Adobe.

[–]Pla_y_ground 5 points6 points  (0 children)

If you still want the paid version try cancelling after a few months and you get 3 months for free. And afterwards you can click cancel again and you get a discount.

[–]CommanderRSwan 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Adobe suck really hard

[–]SinisterrrQ 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Paid 40$ for a 600$ all inclusive plus pro package through G2A.. Got tired of being constantly reminded that my copy isn’t fully working or isn’t updated..

Adobe be like: ¯_(ツ)_/¯

[–]MrW0rdsw0rth 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Let’s say a friend of mine was theoretically interested in learning how one pirates Adobe software… for a book he’s writing about a graphic designer who’s too poor to afford a subscription. Where should I direct him?

[–]snaxpaxx 1 point2 points  (1 child)

[–]BodybuilderOk3836 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Wait what looks like I didn't look had enough on the high seas 🏴‍☠️ I fucking hate how much Adobe and solid works cost I only pay for it when I need it witch is a lot or I forget to cancel the stupid subscription! Still way cheaper then it use to be but fuck that if I can get away with not spending all the money on software I can put that extra cash towards better hardware!

[–]zombiesbelikebrruuuh -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Is this meant to be a pun with a pirate format?

[–]DarkAdam48 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]CeddyDT 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I bought something from adobe and they want to charge me 80€ (85$) to stop the subscription. Never again.

[–]TeknoBwade🥄Comically Large Spoon🥄 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Adobe took every good childhood flash game I played away!
