Occasionally Adobe receives questions about other companies’ patent matters, including patent litigation, when these patents are the subject of articles that appear in newspapers, magazines, or on the Internet.

It is inappropriate for Adobe to make comments about another company’s litigation matters without a complete understanding of the complexities of the patent laws and the issues of each specific case.

Therefore, we do not answer questions about patent matters involving other companies unless we decide to issue a press release or make a comment through our company communications process.
