Different License for Student Edition

A different legal license applies to the student edition of the software. Here are some key points that affect North American student licensees:

• The software must be used on private computers. The Student Edition cannot legally be run on a business-owned or school-owned machine. Happily, the student license allows for use on two machines, such as a desktop and a laptop.

• The software cannot be transferred or sold. Adobe does not want students to buy discounted software and sell it at a profit.

• Students can only buy one copy of a Student Edition of Adobe software. Again, Adobe wishes to stop students from profiting unduly off their offer.

• The software can be used after graduation.

• The software can be used commercially. Images produced by the Student Edition can be sold by the student before or after he graduates.

• The software cannot be returned or exchanged. For this reason, it is advised that the user verifies his eligibility before purchase.

† Anything which has been issued within a range of 6 months, considered as new.
