Academic is identical to the fully priced retail version of the software. The word "Academic" is imprinted on the box, however this software is 100% genuine.
Academic software comes with all the same functions and programs as its full priced, retail counterpart, and no academic information is required. There is absolutely no difference between the programs installed on your computer by academic or the retail version. However, the academic box does come with a sticker which reads "for Educational use only".
Under the First Sales Doctrine, it states that once you pay the price to buy an object, it is yours to do with as you wish. Under this legal document, both the supplier and buyer are protected when buying and selling academic software. This has been upheld time and time again in the courts. (Ref: Microsoft v. Zamos)

For example, the Action Center gives you more control over how the operating system notifies you about system changes.
