    Okay, so I'm going to take my MBP to the Apple store here soon and I have a few concerns about some apps I downloaded without paying for. First of all, I have the whole Final Cut Studio that I got from a friend who bought it. Then I have Adobe After Effects and Photoshop CS3 that I didn't buy. Do you think that when I take my computer to get fixed they'll care at all if I didn't but these? Thanks a lot!!

    They will press charges if they find all this software on your MBP. Actually, I'm kidding ... I don't think they have time to go check individual licenses.

    You should've bought them, scammer. You have no rights to that software. You should be ashamed of yourself.

    That's not scamming... It's called illegal software.

    They will immediately call the police and have you hauled off to prison. Not even a trial. Steve really does have that much power.

    But that's only if they check your serials. Honestly, you're not going to get much sympathy around here. You have a MBP but won't buy pro apps?
