In short, Adobe disable activation servers and provide a download link to the software and a registration key to reactivate if you need to re-install CS2. Adobe then wonders why so many people "pirate" it from their own website...

I used this today funnily enogh when having to install CS2 onto a new PC. We're properly licensed for said PC, but it's an interesting one - especially as they provide full serials - how many will chance using an older version whilst unlicensed, I wonder.
I actually discovered it havign down the install from the original CD media, then turning to Google when the activation process didn't work.

According to Adobe, you should only use it if you have a valid licence for Photoshop even though they don't bother verifying it.

I downloaded PP2 from the site after reading that it was now free. I also registered it. Be interesting to see if they bother getting back to me.
