Default Software

Hello,

I made some purchases of software, Adobe and Microsoft, off of the internet that I now know are illegal versions. I uninstalled everything from my computer. Is there anything else I should do? Can I get into trouble even though I didn't know they were illegal at first? Thanks

Nick

please explain how much you bought them for.., lol

no you wont get caught. its not your fault. its the person that distrubutes it who will get in trouble. you will have more trouble because you gave them your credit card #.

anyway, just throw it in the trash and forget about it.

yes I did give them my credit card # and my buddy said he did some research on them saying he was pretty sure they were giving pirated versions of software. I guess now I have to wait to see if they exploit my credit card in some way...

ok, i read their F.A.Q and they admit its illegal to use the software for commercial use but not for in home use.

edit: and when i had consulted my resources (www.dnsstuff.com) and did a WHOIS search, it gives all the personal info of the guy.
