I've fallen in to the same trap as a great many people it seems. I tried acrobat for a trial period and it ticked over on to a subscription plan as I forgot to cancel it (I really don't use it at all and didn't find the software worth while), my fault in missing that, however I thought that I would be on a month to month plan and it was what was completely unclear to me at the time was that this is an annual plan that requires you to pay an early cancelation fee if you want to cancell within the year! At no point was I aware that I was commiting to a full year of this extortionate pricing. Yes, it's in the T&C that now reasonable person could possibly be expected to be able to read through just to use some pdf editing software, but I hear that so many people have fallen for the same thing and after mentioning to a friend, they told me that they've spoken to a lawyer who is eager to start a class action lawsuit. Is this something worth being involved in, has any one else managed to get Adobe to waive the fee for a product that they've not even used (and presumably Adobe can see this)?

I have fallen for the same trick after my father died I tried to convert a PDF of an old photo of my dad for his funeral memorial service. Obviously cancelling a free trial was the last thing on my mind. Now I'm stuck with a $100 cancellation fee on a software that I use so rarely it makes sense why Adobe has to extort it's customers just to keep the cash flow coming to it. It is a terrible that they are hitting their customers with. $20 a month for software that used to be free. They deserve a class-action suit and I would be glad to get involved.
