Purchasing Adobe Creative Cloud in China

…is harder than using Facebook via VPN.

Recently, I tried to purchase Adobe Creative Cloud for my team in China. As a designer who does a little bit programing, I want my team to use licensed commercial software not just for legal reason but for the respect to the creators. And it was very painful experience, from calling resellers who are rude and clueless, to understand some fundamentals such as you simply can’t do this without a company in other countries.

It’s nearly impossible to get the latest ACC as a package within China. You have to buy individual products and manage these with intensive labors. The infrastructure is very out-date and no one cares enough. Next time, if you complaint not many people use legal software in China, try purchase some for your team.
