Adobe Initiates Activation for Creative Suite 2

Jim Dalrymple reports for MacCentral on Adobe’s new activation system for the upcoming Creative Suite 2, which will require online serial number registration. I don’t think this will hurt honest users at all — the activation hoops aren’t likely to be any more difficult than the existing “enter your serial number” dialog. The aim is to cut down on “soft” bootlegging, where, say, someone buys one license and installs it on more than two machines.
