Adobe CLP: Important changes

All CS6 purchase licenses for educational institutions have been discontinued from 27.02.2015. The affected products comprise After Effects CS6, Audition CS6, Dreamweaver CS6, Fireworks CS6, Flash Professional CS6, Illustrator CS6, In Copy CS6, InDesign CS6, InDesign Server CS6, Photoshop Extended CS6, Premiere Pro CS6, CS6 Design Standard, CS6 Design Web Premium, CS6 Production Premium and CS6 Master Collection.

The eLearning Suite 6.1 purchase license can still be obtained through the CLP program and includes Flash Professional CS6, Dreamweaver CS6 Photoshop Extended CS6, Audition CS6 Acrobat XI Pro, Presenter 8 and Captivate 6.

As of March 2015 Adobe offers its creative tools solely as a rental license within the newest Creative Cloud version. Regrettably there is no applicable Creative Cloud contract model for universities yet.

Desktop licenses are offered within the Adobe VIP program, which requires immense administrative efforts with regard to distribution and management of the licenses. Along with privacy issues these circumstances do not allow for a university-wide acquisition.

At present there is merely an option to establish an ETLA contract based on the number of employees. The acquisition of a desktop based contract is currently in progress.

Alternative Solutions

Due to Adobe's licensing policy we recommend using the purchase licenses belonging to the CLP contract and to preferably switch to alternative products (Alternativprodukte (PDF, 75,5 KB) , German). The PDF gives an exemplary overview of possible alternatives for the established Adobe products.

There is another list of alternative products by the EDP unit of faculty VI, which can be accessed using the tubIT login data.



ADOBE Open Option

General Information About Adobe CLP Program

The TUB has joined the ADOPE Open Option - Contractual License Program 5.0 (CLP). The CLP License Program is currently valid until 07/01/2023.

Departments of TUB can purchase permanent licenses for Adobe products for official, non-commercial use for research & education for low-cost charges. The CLP program does not include licenses for employees or students of TU. The purchaser of Adobe OOE licenses is entitled to obtain patches or bugfixes free of charge (see also Adobe plug-ins and updates).

License Terms

In this case a license covers the right to install and use (PC running Windows or MAC resp. UNIX) the correspondent product on a single workstation. It is prohibited to use the CLP licenses via virtual entities or remote access (terminal clients).

For networked computers a concurrent use of the software is only allowed if the number of usage rights corresponds with the amount of computers the programs are simultaneously used on.

Further details can be found here: Conditions.

Orders And Dispatch Of Adobe Software

Departments of TUB can obtain licenses and software using tubIT Softwareportal. There you can find all products, product descriptions, documentations and prices available within the Adobe CLP agreement. You can purchase a data medium for the software installation. It is also possible to download the product directly from Adobe's server.

Caution: The access permission to Adobe's download area will be sent to you a few days after your first order of a Adobe license via e-mail ("Willkommen zur Adobe Lizenzierungswebsite" von adobelicensing@adobe.com). You will receive a login ID and a provisional password for the download area. Due to security reasons you will be asked to change your password upon first login. Please keep the login ID and the changed password, it will be required for all further oders.

Only especially large products will be distributed only via data mediums. In those cases a data medium has to be purchased together with the license.

Ordering products within the Softwareportal that are part of the TU license agreement constitutes a formal contract between the customer and the TU. In relation to the customer only the conditions of use as specified in the adhering tubIT contract are applicable. Products acquired within TU agreements are excluded from the right of revocation.

Adobe Licenses For Pupils, Students and Teachers

Adobe now offers some products for pupils, teachers, professors and students for low charges for the private use on a PC/MAC. You can find further information in specialised trade or on Adobe's education websites.
