    "Mere days after the release of Adobe's Creative Cloud suite, pirates have already marred the launch of the company’s exclusively subscription-based apps. Magnet links for at least two versions of Adobe Photoshop CC (Creative Cloud) 14 for Windows are circulating on the Pirate Bay, as well as copies of Dreamweaver CC 13 and Adobe Illustrator CC 17."

    As if that wasn't expected. Hackers: 1. Adobe: 0

    In other words, pirates are happy because they managed to crack the new Adobe products, people using the pirated versions are happy because they don't need to pay (well, unless they got themselves some malware in the process), and Adobe seems to be happy as well! Everybody wins! :D

    What a shocker. Subscription services are dumb and will in no way prevent pirating.
