Adobe planning to use online activation

By on July 7, 2003, 2:03 AM
Adobe has begun testing online activation of its Photoshop 7.0 application in Australia as a way of stemming the illegal use of its software. If the pilot is successful, and so far it is, the developer plans to begin using software activation in the US.

Few have been the companies that have been able to maintain in good shape sales after using similar activation techniques, not long ago we reported on Intuit taking back their decision after a failed transition to product activation.
