I want to buy Adobe Web Premium Suit costing $1800 in US. I don't want to buy from India for many issues like 17% extra taxes, the reseller can easily dupe me since they'd deliver the product after a couple of days of full payment.

Indians can't buy Adobe software online. I want to know if I buy from US store online with my credit card, will the license be valid in anywhere in the world? I mean if I were to visit US on say H1 visa and I buy there can I activate it anywhere in the world?

I've called up their customer care. They have given mixed answers. Moreover even if someone there promises that it'd be all legal, it'd not change the EULA unless somebody from Adobe replies me on their official email id.

Does anybody have any idea about this?

the software you buy is not generally region limited. – Sathya Jul 5 '11 at 16:50
Closing this post shows your narrow mind. Is it region specific? There are plenty of users like you in this forum who just want to pat themselves just for policing some threads and posts and increase their reputation points. – AgA Jul 6 '11 at 11:35

Here is the EULA for CS5.5, which that suite is a member of. I read through the English, and I could find nothing saying you would not be in compliance if you took the product back to India. There are several areas that say you must be in compliance with local laws, so theoretically, you could have problems there.

I commend you on paying for an expensive software package, when many in your shoes would pirate it.

There are no local tax issues here in India. Adobe should ease buying procedure in India when no one buys such a costly license here. – AgA Jul 5 '11 at 10:54
It means I can give an US address when buying with my credit card in India. I'm not sure if I'll be able to fully understand the EULA. – AgA Jul 5 '11 at 10:55
