Now, let's just go over the math for a second. Selling at $100-$200, Adobe would have to sell 28-55 copies to generate the same revenue as one sale at the current price. Now, let's assume this new price eliminates piracy completely (which it won't). At 70% piracy, for every 1 copy sold today, there will be 3.33 sales. So, for every copy selling today at $5500 Adobe would now sell 3.33 copies at $333 to $666 total.

Please explain to me how this is a good business plan?


Just out of curiosity, how do you figure there would be 3.33 sales?

Using the numbers posted previously 30% being purchased legitimately, 70% being pirated. Assuming all pirated copies are now purchased: 30% * 3.33 = 100%

The full retail Master Collection is that much. The "upgrade" version is around $2500-$3000. Assuming you spent $5000 at least once, only then you quality for upgrades.


Um.. upgrade is not $2500-$3000.. where do you people draw these numbers from. Full CS5.5 Master Suite was $2500. Upgrade was $500 if you had the previous version. And it has been that for a while.

If only Adobe priced their software at $100-$200 which they price at $5500 they would have become far more profitable. Along the likes of Google, Apple and Microsoft.


If only Ferrari, Lamborghini, and other luxury car manufacturers priced their vehicles like Honda and Toyota, then we could all drive one. Bah. If you actually needed Photoshop, you'd have a job that payed enough to be able to afford it, I.E, photographer, design agency, etc. editing your Facebook photos does not require adobe creative suite.
