A Petition to Adobe
on May 7, 2013 at 11:35:48 pm

If its important to you to let Adobe know how you feel here is a great way to do it with a bunch of other folks.
This a petition someone started.

http://www.change.org/petitions/adobe-systems-incorporated-eliminate-the-ma..... …


It would be good to then send out this Tweet to help rally others that feel the same way.

Adobe: Eliminate the mandatory "creative cloud" subscription model. Sign this petition if you want a choice. http://www.change.org/petitions/adobe-systems-incorporated-eliminate-the-ma..... …

Its very new and there are almost 1000 signatures. Its really our best shot to communicate with Adobe as a group of customers.

Hi Tom,
Feel free to do what you want, and I know you already know this, but may I suggest a better place to register your complaints? Provide your feedback directly to the product teams using the following form: http://www.adobe.com/go/wish

Thanks!
Kevin

Thanks Kevin.

I think I did that one right right after NAB.

But I appreciate the reminder. :D

In my opinion, it would be better to get others to fill out the wishform rather than get others to sign a petition that Adobe might not see.

[Tom Daigon] "I think its wise to do both. Im sure they will be aware of it eventually ."

My personal opinion: You can do what you want, but I think it's more effective to communicate directly with the people you want. No noise, just direct communication.

Kevin, I'm going to assume that you were unaware of the staggering volume of vitriol that spewed forth from Final Cut Pro 6 & 7 users when Apple revealed the full details of FCPX. It happened right here on the Creative COW in the FCP forums. It may also have happened in other places, but I'm not aware of them.

The Creative COW is a frequent and very popular venue for software users to vent their spleen. Inevitably, such things as petitions will arise. Adobe may WANT people to contain their remarks in a less public venue, but I assure you: it ain't gonna happen. There's a certain psychological value to getting mad at Adobe out of Adobe's direct view.

There also may be a practical reason for it: how would people know that unkind remarks about Adobe are not being vigorously edited on an Adobe forum by Adobe moderators? There are no guarantees that Adobe would not do so. The Creative COW represents greater freedom of expression in this matter.

Apple apparently ignored all of the controversy on the COW when it launched FCPX.

Given that people have a choice in place where they express their opinions, what is Adobe going to do? Ball's in your court, sir....

[Dave LaRonde] " Adobe may WANT people to contain their remarks in a less public venue, but I assure you: it ain't gonna happen"

My feelings exactly David. The idea is to spread the word so folks that are unhappy with this policy can communication this dissatisfaction to Adobe en masse.

BTW after a short presence on the web, signatures are approaching 2,000.

This is news to me, so I'm all for a least bulletin to the users. (I like the idea of a link to a separate petition.) Thanks for the heads-up.

An Update on the Petition

The signature count is now heading toward 3,000.

This represents approximately one full day of folks motivated by recent events, being aware of its existence.

I have written to the contact which Kevin gave in his post and also have signed the petition which I sent a link to Shantanu Narayen, Adobe's CEO at his email at Adobe so that it will not go unnoticed.

[david aretsky] "I have written to the contact which Kevin gave in his post and also have signed the petition which I sent a link to Shantanu Narayen, Adobe's CEO at his email at Adobe so that it will not go unnoticed."

Good for you. Heres an indication of how many folks feel the same way you do.

Tom, I can't locate the survey you reference on Toolfarm's site. When was this poll done, do you have a link to it?

Here you go Ridley. Its ongoing. Consider it a straw poll of opinion at this point.
