I believe in Free Software and I would love to see Adobe making Photoshop
free.  However, I don't think that it's okay to start giving away copies
of Adobe Photoshop.  Adobe does not want Photoshop free.

As a computer user today, you may find yourself using a proprietary program. If your friend asks to make a copy, it would be wrong to refuse. Cooperation is more important than copyright.
