Man! You need to be a little more careful about offering copyrighted software in public. I know you’re just trying to help someone, but you could probably end up in court and having your computers seized.
I had some young friends in Dallas who had it happen. They’d copied some Microsoft programs and burned copies for some of their friends (several dozen copies, I think). FBI raided their houses & seized computers and stuff. They got huge fines and probation for (I think) five years. On top of all that they now have felony convictions in their records. The feds didn’t have much more to go on than a message like the one you just left when they raided their houses.
The fact that its an old version and the company sold out does not affect the copyrights one bit.
Hey, if the feds take your computer, send me your mouse pad, OK? Mine’s getting sorta nasty. X-D
Haha. Actually It’s a legit copy my brother (a musician) gave me when he switched to another program. I don’t need it and I’m not making copies. I’m pretty sure It’s ok to sell or give away software if you own it legally.
