AutoCAD 2008 Free Trial

Once the 30 days of the free trial is over, do you need to do anything to prevent Autodesk from charging you one way or another, or does the program simply stop working? I downloaded the trial to do some work for a college civil engineering project and I don't have several thousand dollars to spend on the regular program.

I have never used the trial version, but I would bet that it will stop
working at the end.

you can get the student version for free, and yes, at the end of the 30 days it stops working
