Adobe Tells Users They Can Get Sued for Using Older Versions of Photoshop That They Already Own
Adobe is warning some owners of its Creative Cloud software applications that they’re no longer allowed to use older versions of the software.
It’s yet another example of how in the modern era, you increasingly don’t actually own the things you’ve spent your hard-earned money on.
The notice states, “We have recently discontinued certain older versions of Creative Cloud applications and and a result, under the terms of our agreement, you are no longer licensed to use them,” Adobe said in the email. “Please be aware that should you continue to use the discontinued version(s), you may be at risk of potential claims of infringement by third parties.”
The company didn’t inform users why they needed to discontinue use of the software, but the company’s Twitter account indicated the issue stems from “ongoing litigation.”
