    * Trademark and copyright issue

    I have had my domain website to sell some used stuffs with no issues, but I received a trademark and copyright violation and a $495 bill for fine yesterday. According the letter, SIIA says I was selling the forfeit products on my website. I actually sold two used adobe which I purchase a long time ago on the adobe distribution. What should I do now? Also they sent me a affidavit letter too? Than you so much

    Where are you located? It depends on your jurisdiction as to what your rights with regards to used software.

    I recommend you consult a lawyer working with computer issues.

    Is this who sent you the complaint.... cause they seem like a RIAA just harassing people for money. I would not pay and tell them to shove it where the sun doesn't shine.

    Adobe licenses are non transferable without prior written permission. Additionally, advertising these products that are older than what is on the market or at a "discount" is also against their TOS.

    Transferring Licenses: If you want to make money off of these types of products you would be better served in their affiliate program.
