    Hi Guys,

    I have a bit of a curious issue that I am hoping someone can clear up for me.

    I purchased an unopened copy of the above software on eBay to use for work purposes.

    When I received it, everything was absolutely fine and I got a pretty good deal on legit, unopened software. I understood it was the retail version that is eligible for future upgrades and paid as such. However, on the box two stickers were present - one says "Apple Final Cut Pro Studio 2 - RETAIL" and the other "Apple Final Cut Pro Studio 2 - ACADEMIC" both have barcodes.

    I got worried and was assured by the seller that it must have just stuck on by mistake as he has a few copies of both versions in the same storage area. I installed it and nothing in the license agreements on any component of the software has the word academic on it - but can someone confirm that this appears on an academic version at all in the first place?

    Thanks very much.

    I can't absolutely confirm this, but as far as I'm aware the Academic version says so under About.
