Lots of heated "discussions" on Adobe's new TOS. What does the people who use their services more than me think?

I do not care about the new TOS, I'm getting rid of PS/LR at home. I never use it anymore since my one pro-photog does it herself now and if I do need to use PS I can do it at work during lunch hour. And I never used LR as a film shooter. Besides I need the $10 a month so I can justify getting Amazon prime.
 
Poor communication on Adobe's part, but nothing to be concerned with. Want iron clad protection for one's IP, don't post it anywhere online, keep it locked up on a local drive.
 
I usually read all licenses I click ok to before install or agreement. But I just could not be bothered to read what that was all about. Anyone care to explain?
 
So long as I don't see a rainbow incorporated into their logo, I'm good. ✅

Some people think the new terms give Adobe ownership of any work done to train their AI.
 
Hi All.

I never used Adobe software so not a big deal to me.

I bought a lifetime license to Paint Shop Pro 7 in 2000 and I still use it daily. I like to get my monies worth !!

Basically Adobe is now applying rules like being able to raid your online storage to train its AI. + applying new costs to end the license early. There is no option to disagree with the new terms. You cant access your online content through Adobe unless you agree to the new terms.

Moral of the story is dont use online software as its just a license to apply any rules they want and you have to just pay up and agree.

I fully expect this is the way ALL software will eventually go but for now Luminar is installed on my hard drive and I get to choose to update or not.

Supposedly it only applies to images you upload to their cloud services, not locally stored images. But that part is not really clear, they claim to have 2 different AI's, one to detect illegal stuff, (child porn, etc.) and the other is the public adaptive AI.

But since you are only "renting" the software it has to phone home somehow to let them know what you have, how many installs and where and when the rent is due. This is the part that folks are running from. It's clear as mud.

Many think this is a way to avoid being sued for using your copyrighted work in their AI. If they can show you gave them rights to the work, etc.
 
What does that mean?
Yeah, my granddaughters love rainbows and Care Bears, Rainbow Bright and other cartoon characters with rainbows plastered all over them.

As Dr. Freud said, "sometimes a cigar is just a cigar".
