Just a normal day under the Software as a Service paradigm.
I just got an email from @Adobe@twitter.com that I'm no longer allowed to use the software that I'm paying for. Time to cancel my subscription I guess.
Related: Unity's "pay to own" clause which I have not succeeded getting into the license itself but which is - as far as I'm aware - still honored. Worth knowing about. https://blogs.unity3d.com/2016/06/05/subscription-why/
@runevision Certainly illuminates that if you buy software that can eg encode Dolby tracks then you can make those tracks forever but if you rent it, Dolby etc can demand you uninstall working software once an agreement ends. https://twitter.com/Shivoa/status/1127088299653378048
