Adobe warns Creative Cloud users with older apps of legal problems

Adobe warns Creative Cloud users with older apps of legal problems

Users on the older versions of the apps are receiving email from Adobe warning them that the apps they are using are being discontinued.

As part of its push to get creative types drinking the Creative Cloud Kool-Aid, Adobe has allowed users of its app suite to download the likes of PhotoShop and InDesign to physical media without getting in trouble with licence enforcing types.

"For customers who have not yet updated to the latest version of Creative Cloud, please note that you are no longer licensed to use certain older versions of the applications or deploy packages containing these older versions", Adobe writes.

Focusing our efforts on the latest two major releases of Creative Cloud applications, which the vast majority of Adobe customers are already using, will further enable us to develop the features and functionality most requested by customers and ensure peak performance and benefits across Windows and Mac operating systems. Adobe is contractually obligated to report sales of products that use Dolby technologies to the company and to pay the agreed-upon royalty fees. Now, this license has expired, and those third-party companies might go after you if you keep using them.

Sudan's Bashir charged over 'killing' of protesters

Rape case against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange reopened
The Australian whistleblower originally faced four sex-related charges in Sweden after an August 2010 visit to the country. Following the announcement, WikiLeaks said the investigation would give Assange a chance to clear his name .

However, AppleInsider suggests that the issue might involve Dolby, which filed a legal complaint against Adobe earlier this year claiming that the software company "refused to comply with its legal obligations" when selling apps that use Dolby's audio processing tech. Business customers in need of an older version of a Creative Cloud application should contact their IT Administrator to see if one is available.

Adobe has stated via Twitter that it can't comment on claims of third-party infringement because it concerns ongoing litigation.

But Adobe has decided that it doesn't want to do that any more and will cut access to legacy app downloads that are older than the latest two updates. Customers using those versions have been notified that they are no longer licensed to use them and were provided guidance on how to upgrade to the latest authorized versions.

A few days ago, Adobe discontinued older versions of some Creative Cloud apps.
