Adobe (and many other companies) must learn that many writers use products on different computers at different times, and their approach puts hurdles in the way of honest customers. There must be a technological way to prevent the same application from being used by two different people at the same time. That is the solution, not a policy that fails to keep up with the needs of the customer base.
