As a consequence of Executive Order 13884, Adobe has announced the deactivation of all accounts in Venezuela. Since there doesn’t seem to be another solution and there will be no refunds, revolted Venezuelans are now reportedly turning to piracy.
The U.S. Government has blocked almost all transactions and services between U.S. companies, entities, and individuals in Venezuela. As a result, all Adobe Creative Clouds accounts in this country have been deactivated. What’s more – it seems that the affected users won’t get a refund, either.
