Adobe releases CS2 for Free

According  from premiumbeat.com

Kevin Monahan, Sr. Content and Community Lead for Adobe After Effects and Premiere Pro:
Effective December 13, Adobe disabled the activation server for CS2 products and Acrobat 7 because of a technical glitch. These products were released over 7 years ago and do not run on many modern operating systems. But to ensure that any customers activating those old versions can continue to use their software, we issued a serial number directly to those customers. While this might be interpreted as Adobe giving away software for free, we did it to help our customers.

According to Dov Isaacs:
What is true is that Adobe is terminating the activation servers for CS2 and that for existing licensed users of CS2 who need to reinstall their software, copies of CS2 that don't require activation but do require valid serial numbers are available. (Special serial numbers are provided on the page for each product download.) See Adobe forums.
You are only legally entitled to download and install with that serial number if you have a valid license to the product!
