[David Lawrence] "What I find interesting is that by eliminating perpetual licensing, Adobe actually creates a new incentive for piracy. The same hack that eliminates reliance on Adobe's authentication servers is also a safeguard against future price gouging and guarantees future access to files. I'm not advocating piracy here, but if a goal of Creative Cloud is to combat illegal copies, I think it may have an unintended opposite effect."

Like a lock on the front door of your house, it's a deterrent. It's not designed to make Adobe products unhackable. It's designed to help combat things like the casual 'loaning' of discs and people selling computers on ebay/craigslist 'fully loaded' with thousands of dollars of pre-installed apps.

Anyone can already download the 30-day trial + a hack to make it work indefinitely so I don't think CC opens the door to a new wave of pirating of Adobe's products.
