I got mines when they were doing free registrationsjust catch em next time
It's a honey pot. Expect lawsuits from Adobe (formerly Allegorithmic)
>>665430This. If you create something using their shit they sue you and claim a big chunk.
stop scaring the kidslet them pirate in peace and learn so they can flood the market and further devalue our craft
>>665482Well played, "Allegorithmic."
>>665330that's not CGPeers that's CGPEERS
>>665337Forums are ded. Trust me, I know.
>>665430>>665432The can't sue every single individual, that's part of their profit base and doing that could harm them more than just simply pirating their software. Most people just tend to pirate the older versions or do it to the new versions because Adobe's way of payment these days is retarded as shit.They'd sue any studio that profits from it though. I know Autodesk does.
>>665430>>665432Joke's on them, i use it to grab tutorials
>>665330Try different ip and different browser until you find a good comboe.g. register from your phone
If you're a student with an edu e-mail address, then it's $19.99 a month for Adobe's entire library of software.
>>665626What if I am self-taught?
>>665550>The can't sue every single individualThat's even worse. If they don't sue you it means that the derivative work you created using their shit illegally isn't generating any revenue. You're nobody; you didn't amount to nothing. You don't matter.
>>665630or I am using it in a non profit manner as I had no intentions on selling it anyways
>>665670Funny way of saying "I'm nobody".
>>665630That's fine, I don't give a damn about profiting off their shit anyway.Besides, it'd cost Adobe more money than it would be worth to sue all the people pirating their programs. Even if it's a class-action lawsuit.
This place is really filled by 16 yo schoolboys...
>>665721Your [relative] doesn't do it for money either, and yet [he/she] has made quite a name for [him/her]self in town.
suck mah dick and ill sympathy invite
>>665628Can you give yourself an edu address?
>>665432i unironically know 4 people that use pirated adobe products professionally, and have been doing so for the past 15 years, AND they're US-based. what they don't want is a corporation that generates hundreds of millions of dollars using their cracked software.
>>665430Good luck faggots I use a VPN.
>>666221you say that like youve come across some rare unicorni work at a huge LA vfx studio (which i wont name). id say 20% of our shit is pirated and has been that way for decades.
>>666313How does a VFX company deal with it since Foundry, Adobe and Autodesk could knock on your door and demand an audition, also the fallout from disgruntled ex-employers who might know facts like that? Do you have offline workstations? Do you guys run a cracked RLM server? How does the logistics of that work? For a freelancer this might be easily doable, but for a huge LA VFX company this sounds like a nightmare.
>>665430I've been using it for 5 years or so. No VPN, no real protection other than using a fake email. Never a single letter or anything.
>>666316>run a cracked RLM serverI work at the foundry and I can tell you in our case at least, that we know about every single user who is using cracked version of our products.
>>666433Or maybe you're just a blendlet who uses fear tactics to bring more people to your software. Pretty typical.
just wait for open signups. damn.
>>666433>I work at...>I can tell...>we know...No you don't.
>>666433even firewalled ones?Also youre no artist
>>666433I wonder how the Foundry could do something like that without getting into legal trouble. We are talking violation of privacy here.
>>666433even on an off line computer ? now thats some next level NSA shit, eh?
>>666799It's in the terms of service that literally nobody ever reads. It's their product. They can use it and do whatever they want with it.
>>666805They don't know it with offlines. But they do know who downloaded the programs from unsecured lines while downloading. That's why it's better to download with a vpn or with those Mega, Rapidgator, or Uploaded Links on cgpersia. Either way, the Foundry is aware of this and pursues it harder than any other company. Even autodesk and adobe could give a fuck.
>>666818>But they do know who downloadedwhat they do know is at best the IP adresses at the current timefor me, the IP is dynamic and unless they forward it to a judge who decides that the ISP must give the name they have shit and go fuck themselvesIf you torrent something, you are pursued for UPloading, not downloading something.
