much more than that.

photoshop 7, before adobe added activation and long before creative
cloud subscriptions, needed only a valid serial number, which were
widely distributed.

photoshop cc pings adobe's servers to verify it's active, so that check
must be spoofed somehow, which is more work than just typing in a known
valid serial number.
