Will you get sued for using old Adobe apps?

Adobe Creative Cloud

Adobe has been getting a little heavy-handed when it comes to getting people to update its software. Designers running older versions of apps such as Photoshop CC have been receiving emails from Adobe stating that they're no longer licensed to use these versions, urging them to update, and warning that if they continue to use the discontinued versions, they may be at risk of potential claims of infringement by third parties.

Adobe has refused to elaborate on the whole infringement business; AppleInsider has suggested that it may be down to an ongoing legal dispute with Dolby over licensed technology.

Jim McCauley

Jim McCauley is a writer, performer and cat-wrangler who started writing professionally way back in 1995 on PC Format magazine, and has been covering technology-related subjects ever since, whether it's hardware, software or videogames. A chance call in 2005 led to Jim taking charge of Computer Arts' website and developing an interest in the world of graphic design, and eventually led to a move over to the freshly-launched Creative Bloq in 2012. Jim now works as a freelance writer for sites including Creative Bloq, T3 and PetsRadar, specialising in design, technology, wellness and cats, while doing the occasional pantomime and street performance in Bath and designing posters for a local drama group on the side.
