1. If indeed Adobe implements policy based on its merits that are "for the benefit of it's customers" (rational used for rental due to the ability to provide more updates)
2. And thousands (28,0000 signed the petition - likely 3X that number by June 17) of customers are genuinely upset and outraged at the lack of a perpetual / buy out or other option in regards to Adobe software.
3. Then it stands to reason that Adobe will demonstrate this concern for the benefit of its customers by giving them an alternate way of "owning" the licensed software.
4. If they take no such action, then we can judge for ourselves the validity of what they tell us in their marketing promotions. Actions will speak louder then words. Always do.
