FreeHand.org & Adobe (Illustrator)

Hola Buenas, os añado un texto que me han mandado desde Freehand.org (asociación que está luchando contra Adobe por mantener el susodicho programa).

Según parece han llegado a un acuerdo, y parece que Adobe descontaría más o menos 200$ (unos 161€) en la compra del producto Illustrator CS6. He revisado en la web de Adobe y parece que sale a 765€. La verdad después de dejarte con el culo al aire me parece un descuento ridículo, pero quizás a alguien le pueda ayudar. Sólo hay que apuntarse en Freehand.org y por supuesto tener una licencia de Freehand.

Saludos

 

 

 

 

FREE FREEHAND MESSAGE | JULY 7, 2012

 

Dear FreeFreeHand member

 

This follows up on our last post of May 8, 2012 regarding the status of the litigation. After working many weeks with a court-appointed mediator, we have finally reached a settlement agreement with Adobe.

 

First, Adobe has agreed to meet in person with designees of Free FreeHand on at least four occasions to discuss ways to update and improve Illustrator in ways that we believe will best meet the needs of FreeHand users.

 

Secondly, Adobe has agreed to provide eligible Free FreeHand members one non-transferable discount off the current list price of an electronic download of one of the following Adobe products purchased directly from Adobe at an Adobe direct online stores located in countries in which Adobe has such a store ("Discount"): (1) $199 off the full version of the Adobe Illustrator CS6 product; or (2) $199 off the full version of the Adobe Design & Web Premium CS6 product; or (3) $399 off the full version of the Adobe Master Collection CS6 product (the "Authorized Products"). The Discounts are expressed in U.S. Dollars. For Authorized Products purchased at Adobe direct online stores located in countries outside of the United States, Discounts will be a comparable percentage off the retail price set in the applicable local currency of such countries in which Adobe has an Adobe direct online store. More details about the Discount are set forth below.

 

Of course, in exchange, the lawsuit has been dismissed and claims against Adobe in the lawsuit are released and discharged--all necessary requirements of a settlement resolution. We and our attorneys believe this settlement is the best possible outcome in light of what we have been striving to accomplish, the remedies if any that we could get from the court, and the attorneys fees and costs to continue to litigate the case. Just as important, the settlement eliminates the inherent risk of litigation. Those risks are significant in a complex case like this which challenges a merger that occurred over 7 years ago. As a result of all our efforts, we now have a forum to discuss what changes we would like to see in Illustrator, including adding the features we like from FreeHand. With these benefits come necessary changes, for starters a significant update to the Free Freehand website content. There is more to come--our intention is not to dissolve or disperse the community we've all worked hard to build. Simply put, we are entering a new chapter, one which we hope you'll all take part in. For now, that's all there is to share, but if you have any further questions about the settlement, please contact info@freehandforum.com. We thank you again for all of your support!
