Lightroom users now get "perpetual access" after subscription lapse.

Cut and paste from an Adobe website link on Reddits Photography forum today.

What happens to Lightroom after my membership ends?

Since the launch of the Creative Cloud, Adobe has engaged in an ongoing dialog with the photographic community. We’ve tackled mobile workflows, provided ongoing enhancements and lastly, provided a membership plan tailor made for all levels of photographers. With the latest update to Lightroom 5.5 I believe we’ve also addressed a lingering concern in the community: What happens to my photographs after my membership ends?  With Lightroom 5.5, at the end of a membership, the desktop application will continue to launch and provide access to the photographs managed within Lightroom as well as the Slideshow, Web, Book or Print creations that we know many photographers painstakingly create. The Develop and Map modules have been disabled in order to signal the end of the membership and the need to renew in order to receive Adobe’s continuous innovation in those areas. Access to Lightroom mobile workflows will also cease to function. We hope this meets the expectations of our customers and we look forward to an ongoing dialog.

There's a line in the latest "what's new" page for the current CC app update, stating LR is available to even the basic free CC members. I presume that means you can download LR for free. Is that correct?

Lightroom has kind of a weird status in the Adobe world, as it can still be purchased (not rented).

Just wish they had a buyout option something similar to what Avid offers.

photographers are the one bunch they dare not mess with so far.
Also, considering the deals they're throwing at them, you'd think they're a group not exactly jumping all over CC.

adobe needs 5 photoshop cc subscribers for every regular cc subscriber to make
there money projectionsons happen, but they always includes both when giving out numbers,
since there are probably 20 ps users for every ppro user maybe they plan to declare success with mostly photographers.

On my laptop, I still stick to Photoshop CS6 for image work. The truth is you don't really need the new features of CC to get work done.
On the contrary, I have a single App subscription for Premiere CC, to be up to date with new codecs and better toolsets that keep coming.

Guess many photographers are good on CS6...?
