I don't plan on turning anyone in but technically you guys are discussing violating Software Copyright laws in a public forum. In order to purchase and use a previous version, then the seller would have to uninstall and cease using the newer version. You only purchase a license to use the software not the software itself.
I paid full price for the 6.0 and for the 5.0 that preceeded it and only paid the upgrade fee for the version 7.04. I didn't want to charge anything for it because of the ethical implications. Upon further reflection, I don't think I should even give it away or swap it. So, offer withdrawn. Better to err on the safe side. I like Tim and wouldn't want to jack him.
Well, that's what I've been hoping for. I don't want to rip Tim off either, there's just a limit to what I can afford right now. I don't want to bootleg a copy from anyone, just looking for a legitimate sale if that's possible. If a moderator thinks we need to shut down this thread it won't hurt my feelings...
I don't think it needs to be shut down. This is a legitimate discussion. Many people don't understand software copyright laws and this thread may help clear up some of those questions. I agree that $95 is a significant sum of money for many people.
PS One thing that continues to amaze me is the level of integrity exhibited by rocketeers everywhere.
don't mean to butt in but has anyone asked "Tim?" about an older version price?...i wouldn't mind buying it..but i don't have 90 bucks to shell...and besides just cuz its older doesn't mean its worse..ive heard great things about this program.
