A day after Adobe, Apple & Microsoft were dragged in front of an Australian Parliamentary probe, into why Australians are being charged so much more for products especially when most of the products are downloadable, Adobe released a statement that it will be lowering its prices on some of its products. Failure to show up to the Parliamentary hearing could have seen representatives held in contempt of parliament, with penalties that extend out to gaol time.
Adobe will be lowering the cost of the Cloud subscription of Australians brining it in line with what the US pay.
“As Adobe continues to attract membership to its cloud offerings, it is evolving its product offering to provide increased value to subscribers, including new pricing for customers in Australia and New Zealand,” the company said in a statement.
“Creative Cloud membership pricing in Australia for individuals has been reduced to 49.99 Australian dollars ($51.00) on an annual subscription per month for new and current customers, effective immediately.” That was a reduction from 62.99 Australian dollars.
The companies statement didn’t mention anything about the parliamentary probe. Funny that!
There has been no word from Apple or Microsoft as of yet.
