I'm in the process of buying Media composer. I came across a very nice offer from
what seems to be a reliable source on ebay.
What do you guys think?
I am tempted...:)

100% feedback. ebay doesn't permit sale of counterfeit or pirated software.

Yeah, I also checked he's feedback history and all the people that ordered Avid products before were satisfied.
I wonder, how he can sell this for such a small amount...?

ask him. could be liquidated assets of a bankrupt business. could be stolen. or anything in between. as long as you're comfortable that the software is legit and working, do you care?

No. Not really:)
karma. ive learned that you pay for things one way or another. may get it cheap now. but one day when you least expect it some kind of payback will happen.
since ive been a working professional, i just pay what the software costs and work it all into my hourly rate.
now if youre young, or simply a hobbyist. thats another story...

I agree with you.
BUT, it's really not all that simple. This are your moral rules and philosophy.
Let's not get into a philosophical debate here.
I found more cheap media composer licences. It's strange, they all seem to be coming from USA. In EU not so much. The cheapest I see in EU are actually from
Germany. MC6 in box, unopened can be bought for app. 1100€. That's basically 900€ cheaper than if you were to buy from Avid. Interesting.
The same goes for Adobe products, but it's not the same with Adobe as the serial numbers that were ment for USA can't be used
properly in EU (upgrading and support are the problems as I understand it).
