According to Adobe, Forever 21 has been pirating Photoshop, among many other programs. Citing 63 instances in which Forever 21 employees were using pirated versions of different Creative Suite programs — including Photoshop, Acrobat and Illustrator — Adobe filed the lawsuit yesterday in the California District Courts. Autodesk and Corel also joined Adobe in filing the suit based on pirated copies of Autodesk, WinZip and Paint Shop Pro. According to the complaint, Forever 21 “continued their infringing activities even after being contacted by Adobe regarding the infringement.” It is still unclear how Adobe traced the violations, but its filing includes specific registration numbers and dates for each instance, which Adobe cites as “willful, intentional and malicious copyright infringement,” asking the court to issue an injunction and compensate the companies for lost revenue, court costs and additional damages.
