I know, I know, and I apologize in advance for even broaching the subject, but I came across the following article today and thought I'd throw it into the mix.  Although I've decided not to go the Adobe CC software 'rental' route, I've tried to remain impartial about it.  I don't use PS, and LR (for the moment) is still available standalone.  However, for those who are undecided, the link below offers some interesting information (there are a series of articles, all written by the same author).

http://macperformanceguide.com/blog/2013/20130508_1a-Adobe-legal-agreement.html

Adobe's $10/month offer for both PS and LR seems to have tempted a lot of people who were otherwise uncommitted.  I must admit, when I first heard about it I was reminded of the following quote from Winston Churchill:

"Churchill: Madam, would you sleep with me for five million pounds?
Socialite: My goodness, Mr. Churchill ... Well, I suppose ... we would have to discuss terms, of course ...
Churchill: Would you sleep with me for five pounds?
Socialite: Mr. Churchill, what kind of woman do you think I am?!
Churchill: Madam, we've already established that. Now we are haggling about the price."

Thanks for posting that link, Mike.
I'll admit I have toyed with the idea of perhaps going for the PS+LR Special deal sometime in December, but that "agreement" settles the question permanently for me.
I'll have to get along with LR5 and CS6 as long as I can.

Well said Mr Churchill!

Or Mr Shaw, or any of the others to whom the male half of the exchange is attributed.

Do you use an iPhone?

See -- South Park, Season 15, Episode 1, April 27 2011 -- "HumancentiPad" ("Don't read about 'HUMANCENTiPAD' on a full stomach")

"Combine both story lines — the HUMANCENTiPAD one hinged on the notion that people don’t read the Apple agreements they sign off on, and thus allow themselves to be tracked at any location and human-centipeded — and you see that the themes are Parker-Stone perennials: Knowledge really matters; many people are lazy and thus prey to exploitation."

I'm guessing that most license agreements are heavily weighted in favour of the vendor/service provider and I won't be losing any sleep over Adobe deciding they don't want my money by cutting me off arbitrarily.

In fact there is a typo in Adobe's title for that document. The correct version reads "terms of abuse".

Cheers,

Yeah, I think those are all written by the same legal firm who apparently get paid by the word.

Trying to cover their ass for any possible thing that might occur, often with an unintended result (such as facebook laying claim to every image people upload).  They are so long and written in legalspeak that if you were forced to read one to the end you might end up slitting your wrists before you finished.

I think you would find similar issues with any of these from pretty much every company, but from a practical perspective, I don't think I've ever heard terms of service becoming an issue an issue outside of some pretty rare circumstances.
