Adobe’s announcement that it will drop its traditional, perpetual license model for Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, and its other professional creative apps in favor of a Creative Cloud software subscription model rubbed lots of folks the wrong way. Now there’s a petition to keep the Creative Suite perpetual license model alive, notes “The MacObserver” (

The petition, started by Berek Schoffstall at, can be found at . Schoffstall has this to say: “You should support this petition because Adobe is making their already expensive products even more expensive in the long run. Adobe is robbing small business, freelancers, and the average consumer. They do not seem to understand that every company is a not multi-national, multi-billion dollar corporation that has an infinite amount of resources.”
