Has anyone encountered anything remotely similar to what Christopher

Dear  Steve:

I find that, recently, Adobe has been requiring us to create a kind of
personal 'membership' of Adobe before allowing us to open a .PDF file. The
potential ramifications are far reaching.

If we all continue to use .PDF files to communicate substantial documents
(as I have also done so until recently)  then in due course the whole of
the ICANN community will have to become *nolens volens * 'members' of Adobe.

Is that OK? I am worried about it. Has ICANN anything to say to Adobe about

Just a thought
