Adobe warned users: The company sent out a warning to customers that they “risk receiving third-party abuse reports” if they continue to use outdated versions of Photoshop CC and Lightroom CC.
It turned out that Adobe recently stopped working with some older versions of Creative Cloud applications.
Customers using these versions were notified that they no longer have a license to use them, so they were given guidance on upgrading to the latest authorized version.
However, a spokesman said that Adobe could not comment on third-party claims of abuse, as this concerns ongoing trials.
Customers who continue to use or deploy, unauthorized versions of Creative Cloud may face potential claims of infringement by third parties. We can not comment on claims of third party infringement, as it concerns ongoing litigation. ^CS https://t.co/wx2K8MXov9

Dolby sued Adobe back in March 2018 for allegedly failing to execute its licensing deal. Under the contract, Adobe is obliged to inform the company about the sales of products using Dolby technology and to pay agreed license fees.
According to court documents, Dolby accuses Adobe of selling products using its technology without any payment, as well as refusing to provide the necessary information.
At the time, Adobe announced that it did not agree with Dolby’s characteristic on issues related to testing Adobe’s use of its software in the past.
