Anyone else see the stories about Adobe threatening to sue anyone using an old version of their software?
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. ~C. S. Lewis

According to Adobe Says Upgrade Creative Cloud Apps or Risk 3rd Party Claims, it appears to be related to a Dolby lawsuit against Adobe.

Quote

On May 8th, 2019, Creative Cloud users have started receiving emails from Adobe stating that older versions of the products they are using have been discontinued and that users are no longer licensed to use them. For many of these developers, this not a reasonable request as they need to utilize older versions for certain projects.

In addition, the email states that users of these discontinued programs must upgrade to a newer version or they "may be at risk of potential claims of infringement by third-parties".
