Some months ago people who own Adobe software received a letter stating that licenses for older versions of their software were no longer valid. The letter hinted at legal issues and potential “third-party copyright infringement”. This AppleInsider article from May provides more information as to why Adobe sent those emails. It appears that Dolby is suing Adobe over audits that Dolby is entitled to exercise and that Adobe has refused.

Prior to the creation of the Creative Cloud subscription service, Adobe licensed certain technologies from Dolby with an agreement based on how many discs of certain apps were sold. Now that the software is distributed online, the companies reportedly renegotiated their agreement to be based on how many users are actually running the software.
