How can people sell USED versions of NIS2009

Hi

I came across this   

 http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B001E0RZ3U/ref=dp_olp_used?ie=UTF8&condition=used

How safe is it to even contemplate buying a used version of NIS2009?Not that I would but it does not make sense about NIS being used!

Any thoughts or opinions?

And how can there be "good", "acceptable" and "like new" conditions?  It's software.

Hi mo,

   It's funny that you posted used versions of NIS because yesterday I went to a Thrift Store and seen a Used NIS 2009 in the box "good condition" for sale for $10.00. No I didn't buy it I feel sorry for the one who does! (The box was open)

Re: How can people sell USED versions of NIS2009

The problem in buying via that method is that no matter what the seller claims:

1) You cannot be sure that the product has not been activated and may only have a partial subscription left (remember you are purchasing a subscription and license, not the program itself).

2) If a 3 user version, one or more user activations may have been used.

3) It may by an OEM version which could prevent you from getting the FREE updates to the newest version.

My advice would be to avoid that type of purchase. If you keep an eye out, there are various times during the year when legitimate resellers put "sealed" packages on sale. In that way, if you do encounter a problem, you have recourse with an established business.

If you click on the Used link on that page all the list say unused .....

As others say whether you believe them is something else.

But also none of the prices are interesting since most match what you pay if you go into a local store .....

Does symantec allow redistribution or reselling of a product, i don't think so.

Its not even ethical.

Ok if u r having a close friend and he wants a deal then u can think of it but buying from unknown person is quite risky and u might be dumping ur money in river.

Nobody will give u advice to go on with the deal.

Thanks to all who replied

 I just hope anyone who is thinking of buying these USED versions will think twice!! Consider what the term USED means in a product that is licensed by a  time frame.Where I am there is no difference between the net price and the store price(that I have found so far)That's how I'm turning up these interesting "buys" on the net!!

Thanks again for your insight.
