I'm originally from Russia. When my husband and our daughters return to Russia to visit my family we spend the first night in Moscow.
Outside of our apartment on a large sidewalk about every 50 feet is a Kiosk selling any kind of music cd, game or software you want.
On our last trip anything you wanted Adobe and Autodesk was $5.00 US for the latest versions. A complete suite of the latest Adobe was $15.00 US.
If you ever visit a country that does the same thing in public I would suggest you not buy it and risk getting caught with it trying to get through customs. They will arrest you.
It's ok to sale it on the streets in front of the law, well they corrupt too over there, but not ok to go through customs with it especially here in the US.
