The Adobe + Kinko’s Battle Begins


Thanks to a tip sent in by a faithful reader (and co-worker in this writer’s non-Unbeige life), he points us over to Pica + Pixel‘s nice link-based summary of the controversy surrounding Adobe‘s decision to include a “send to Kinko’s” print option in the newest version of Acrobat. It goes without saying that this has people and companies who aren’t Kinko’s slightly miffed. The site provides you with a handful of links to places talking about the uproar from NPR‘s Marketplace to sites like Commercial Appeal. To us, we just don’t know much about the legal end of these things and we’re sure this must’ve been thought out pretty highly at Adobe HQ, so we think we’re going to hush up, keep our comments to ourselves and see how this one pans out. Should be interesting.
