US software giant Adobe has bowed to public pressure and slashed the price of some of its products for Australian customers a day after being ordered to front a parliamentary committee hearing in Canberra.
The move will be seen as a partial victory for consumer advocates and the politicians behind the Federal IT Pricing inquiry, which has been investigating allegations that US technology companies price gouge Australian customers.
This is coming one day after Adobe, Apple, and Microsoft was subpoenaed by Aussie govt to explain why their prices are so high.
Should Autodesk be next? Should this successful (at least with Adobe) move happen in other countries?
