And perhaps, they may not have bothered, but for pirating.

Pirates will continue to use Adobe CS software, without DRM and without monthly fees.  It only takes one pirate to crack the DRM on the new "rental" software (which runs locally, and has DRM to phone home for "activation").  The rest don't have to be smart enough to crack it – they can copy the first pirate's work.

Meanwhile, honest customers will be bent over twice – once when they are treated as criminals by DRM, and another time when they are forced to pay recurring rental fees for products they should be able to buy outright.
