US Gov Suing Adobe For ‘Deceiving’ Subscriptions

The DOJ claims Adobe traps customers in costly plans and hits them with hidden early cancellation fees [which is 100% true — I know from personal experience].

When customers try to cancel, they face a complex process and unexpected fees because upon signing up for a monthly subscription, they’re locked into a year commitment.

P.S. If you’re trying to cancel your Adobe subscription without paying the fees, you need to switch your plan to a different plan first and then cancel as you’re within the “no-penalty cancellation” window with this different plan.

 

YouTube Asking Audience To Add Context To Videos

YouTube is testing a new feature called “notes” that lets viewers add community-sourced context to videos [much like Twitter’s community notes].

This allows users to clarify if a video is a parody or contains outdated footage presented as current.

Initially, only a select few can write these notes, and third-party evaluators will rate their helpfulness.

Currently, notes are only available in English to mobile users in the US.

Tobacco-Like Warning Labels On Social Media

US Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy is pushing for social media platforms to carry tobacco-like warning labels to alert users, especially adolescents, about potential mental health risks.

Murthy argues that social media significantly contributes to the youth mental health crisis, citing studies linking it to anxiety, depression, and body image issues.

He’s calling for urgent legislative action to protect young users from online harms and to enforce independent safety audits of social media companies.
