Imagine buying software lol.
Daily reminder that Allegorithmic is now Adobe.
>>682505>Adobe Warns That Using Older CC Apps Could Get You Sued“you are no longer licensed to use [the old apps],” adding that, if you keep using them, “you may be at risk of potential claims of infringement by third parties.”But to make things clear, it’s not Adobe who’s threatening to sue you. They have probably licensed tech from third-party companies in older versions of CC apps. Now, this license has expired, and those third-party companies might go after you if you keep using them. Something similar happened last year when Adobe removed a few versions of Adobe Premiere Pro due to Dolby licensing issues.https://www.diyphotography.net/using-older-adobe-cc-apps-could-get-you-sued-adobe-warns/LOL my cracked versions work fine (and offline)
*laughs in Serif Affinity and opensource*
/biz/ anon here, SaaS companies are openly describing themselves as "annuities" to risk averse investors. Expect more rent seeking shit in the next 2 years as they pursue a "netflix-like" business model of raising subscription fees every few months.
>>682508This is the main reason I posted this. It's cloud or nothing now. I say from next year you wont be able to own substance.
>>682513well it's no secret.even microshaft describes its operating system as "service" now so you can expect to pay monthly for your OS too in the future lmao
so glad they made substance painter!!
>>682513>a "netflix-like" business modelNETFLIX is cheap and plentiful, and any company doing this model would fare very well indeed.ADOBE, however, is going straight to financial ruin if they think anyone is disposed to pay U$500 monthly for their software suite. U$10, however, would be a completely different matter, and anyone pirating their products would rather pay a monthly subscription IF IT WERE DIRTY CHEAP LIKE NETFLIX, instead of dealing with viruses and cracked exes and firewall schemes. Investors beware - Adobe is dumb and going to die.
>>682505Adobe needs to fuck the fuck off and die. This subscription model is retarded and I hope it causes the next recession if this is the way they're all going.
>>682505I just stopped my subscription at the beginning of the year. I pirated after effects and bought the pro version of Davinci Resolve. I pirated photoshop but when I draw something, I use Krita now. For other things I still use PS but honestly, I'm not even really using that anymore.
>>682510This is the most likely situation.Probably some 3d tech or something. >>682795Student discount is like $20 a month for the entire suite, and I haven't been a student for years. It's not "dirt cheap", but it's reasonable enough I guess. I wouldn't mind it being cheaper, but I make enough to keep subbed for the month in an hour or two of work so it doesn't matter much for me. The program pays for itself in my case. I'm not saying Adobe's sub model is good (in fact I hate it), but $20 a month for it doesn't bother me that much since I use it for work pretty much daily. I'd like if there was an option to just buy it outright, but that's just the world we live in. At this point it's just a work expense like getting gas or something.
>>682505>paying monthly for softwareJust cuck my shit up
>>682510Real question is "how old are we talking about here". Like if this also affects 2018 copies, then that's fucking retarded on Adobe's part. If it's older, then it's still retarded, but in a different way because they didn't plan for any contingencies (though it's Adobe, why would they?).Seriously, what's wrong with renewing those licenses? Are those third parties demanding too much? Or did Adobe just let the fucking licenses lapse and they're too lazy to renew them?
>>682858>Seriously, what's wrong with renewing those licenses?Could it have something to do with the absorption of Allegorithmic? Some conflict of interest with a former licensor?
>>682858Jews over there didn't wanna pay to renew probably.
>>682510did you literally copy-paste a comment from the reddit thread on this?also, >>682512
Did you guys buy substance on steam yet?
>>682795>Adobe is going straight to financial ruinHahahahhahahhahhahahahhahah hahahahah hahaha hahahahhahah
>>682879Oh look. Exactly what the chumps at Silicon Graphics said before going under.
>>682878No. I bought it every year in the sale prior to this. I dont see the point now as I am no longer supporting a cool startup that listened to customer feedback. Who's next Marmoset?
>>682508Oh shit that's right...here's hoping that policy doesn't extend to my ancient 2017 substance painter license
>>682505I know a lot of jew lawyers personally and I'll be filing a class action lawsuit if they ever try to take away my permanent license of Photoshop or Substance programs. I don't care how much money I'll burn, suing these NIGGERS will be easier done than you think.
>>682795It's $50 a month, not $500 you dimwit.

>>683270I remember at the time it was the case but then the hardware at the time was shit.
