From Damn Ugly Photography-Brad Trent, whom I assisted while living in NYC, is a blistering indictment of Adobe and it's practices in pricing, licensing, and now delivering via the cloud its software. 

His post nails it on the head as to why we should as photographers and other creatives tell Adobe that we don't want to license our software every month. Since Adobe is by far and away the first choice in photo manipulation, we may be held captive-but only if we slavishly update our software. 

Check out Brad's post and make your voice heard via the We The People and petition websites. Most importantly, make your dollars heard and spent on other software until Adobe remembers that it serves US as customers.
