Adobe's official comment on the MS situation

June 08, 2006


Thus far, most of the discussion regarding the Microsoft v. Adobe situation has come from Microsoft, either directly or via the press. To date, we've had very little direct response from Adobe. With that in mind, we asked Adobe's Corporate Public Relations team for their take on the situation a few days ago and received their response today.

Adobe's official comment on the MS situation:

As a matter of policy we do not comment on discussions with customers, partners or competitors. However, in response to allegations made by Microsoft to the press, Adobe has made no determination to take legal action against Microsoft. Further, with regard to any discussions we have had with Microsoft about Office and Vista, our sole motivation is to maintain a fair, competitive landscape in the software industry. Any suggestions to the contrary are unfounded.
