Adobe depends on the assistance of partners who focus on preventing the spread of piracy through education and legal enforcement. We are committed to helping them protect our customers by stopping the spread of piracy.
Through our trade associations, there have been great strides in stopping the distribution and use of pirated software. We are committed to working with our partners to educate individuals and businesses and come up with new ways to stop software piracy. By keeping the pressure on illegal sellers and promoting software asset management, we expect to have continued success.
