Adobe Claims Ownership of User Content

A firestorm of controversy has erupted surrounding Adobe’s updated terms of service, which grant the company sweeping rights over user-generated content. Under the new agreement, Adobe asserts ownership of any work created within its Creative Cloud suite, encompassing a vast array of creative professionals, from Photoshop artists to 3D modelers utilizing Substance 3D.

This newfound power stems from a revised clause (2.2) in the service agreement, empowering Adobe to scrutinize user content through both manual and automated means, including the implementation of machine learning techniques. The purpose behind this move remains unclear, with speculations pointing towards the potential utilization of user-generated content to train Adobe’s AI systems.

Another contentious aspect lies within section 4.2, where users are deemed to have granted Adobe a “non-exclusive, royalty-free, worldwide license” to “use, reproduce, publicly display, distribute, modify, create derivative works of, publicly perform, and translate” their creations.

Adding to the dismay, users are barred from uninstalling Adobe software without first accepting the agreement. Those unwilling to comply are effectively locked out of using Adobe’s products.

In response to the backlash, Adobe has attempted to assuage concerns, with Substance 3D product director Jeremy Nogueira assuring users that Adobe does not and has no plans to access their content.

For professional creators, the implications are particularly severe, as many employment contracts prohibit the distribution of work in any form.

Adobe’s Controversial Content Ownership Claim Stirs User Uproar

Adobe has ignited a maelstrom of criticism with its revised terms of service, introducing a clause that grants the company ownership of user-generated content. This move has sent shockwaves through the creative community, particularly among professionals who rely on Adobe’s Creative Cloud suite, including Photoshop artists and 3D modelers working with Substance 3D.

The contentious clause, nestled within section 2.2 of the service agreement, bestows upon Adobe the right to scrutinize user content using both manual and automated methods, encompassing machine learning techniques. The rationale behind this move remains shrouded in ambiguity, with speculations suggesting that the harvested content could be utilized to train Adobe’s AI systems.

Further exacerbating the controversy is section 4.2, which effectively grants Adobe a non-exclusive, royalty-free, worldwide license to “use, reproduce, publicly display, distribute, modify, create derivative works of, publicly perform, and translate” user-generated content.

To add insult to injury, users are unable to uninstall Adobe software without first accepting the revised agreement. Those who refuse to comply are essentially barred from using Adobe’s products.

In an attempt to quell the uproar, Adobe has issued a statement through Substance 3D product director Jeremy Nogueira, assuring users that Adobe does not and has no plans to access their content.

For professional creators, the implications of this new agreement are particularly dire, as many employment contracts strictly prohibit the distribution of work in any form. This raises significant concerns regarding the potential misuse of copyrighted material.

The situation has sparked intense debate, with many users expressing outrage and questioning the ethical implications of Adobe’s actions. The company’s justification for this unprecedented claim to ownership remains unconvincing, leaving users with lingering doubts about the true motives behind this decision.
