I am thinking of buying Adobe Photoshop CS3 when it comes out and have searched the U.S. and British Amazon sites for it.
I discovered that in the U.S. it's available for $642.99 but in the U.K. site it's £545.99 which is about $1072.
These price differences are also pretty much the same if you buy it direct from Adobe.
Anybody got any idea as to why it's so much dearer to over here ?
Is it just a case once again of us being ripped of over here or is there a reason ?

I have heard that its due to extra taxes that software manufacturers have to pay in the European marketplace.
Cheers,

It's to get even for what we pay for British Vogue, British Elle, Digital Photographer, etc.

Often multiples of 2 to 5 times of what their USA counterparts sell for.
