IMHO this is more a case of "buyer beware" - - I do find it offensive (and I
suspect AAdobe is somewhat annoyed at GIMP being termed "free Photoshop" but
that's their worry).
People who pursue such paths without a modicum of due diligence sort of get
they deserve. I hope we're not tending toward a national belief that making
silly mistakes "should be illegal".
