OT Slightly perhaps: Moral question regarding cover CD software

Discussion in 'DIY Computers' started by Asfand Yar Qazi, Jan 9, 2004.

  1. Hi,

    Just a moral question: if some software has been on a coverdisc of a
    magazine, and the magazine's back issues for that edition has run out,
    would you deem it legal for that particular piece of software to be free
    if it can be obtained by other means?

    Thanks,
    Asfand Yar

    What SW? I have loads of coverdisks and rarely use anything on them -
    maybe I could pass on something useful?

  3. lol... thanks mate. I'm looking for the full version of Poser 3, which
    was apparently on the cover disc of 'Computer Arts' magazine February
    2002 (back issues now sold out, surprise surprise.) Obviously, any
    'limited trial' version of other Poser software would be the next best
    thing.

    Many thanks,
    Asfand Yar

    I have a coverdisk with Poser 3 full. It's activation by serial, so if
    you already have the installation media I reckon that using that serial
    is the same as using the coverdisk, morally speaking - it's not like
    they didn't publish it for people to use, is it?
    Drop me an email (my address is valid) and I'll send you the serial, or
    the disk if you need it.
