Adobe also ruffled feathers this week, as they made a major change to their terms and conditions across the board. Under the new terms, there’s a claim towards “accessing your content through both automated and manual methods, such as for content review”. This also includes laying claim to using that data for their own use. Reads as “you grant us a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty free sublicensable, license, to use, reproduce, publicly display, distribute, modify, create derivative works based on, publicly perform, and translate the Content.” Lawyer speak of “we’re gonna watch all you do, and use it to make more money for ourselves”. Photoshop? PDF of a book? Training AI based upon your secrets? It’s an overreach that has multiple content creators screaming!

A change to Adobe terms & conditions for apps like Photoshop has outraged many professional users, concerned that the company is claiming the right to access their content, use it freely, and even sub-licence it to others.
