Adobe Lightroom iOS update permanently deleted users' photos:

A recent update to the Adobe Lightroom app permanently deleted some iOS users' photos and presets, an Adobe rep confirmed on the Photoshop feedback forums. Adobe has since corrected the issue, which was first spotted by PetaPixel, but not before drawing the ire of many disappointed users.

[...] Needless to say, users who had just lost photos and presets were not happy. "Rikk, we understand the announcement, however this doesn't solve the problem," wrote Ewelina Wojtyczka. "People lost months/years of their work. Apologies will not bring it back."

Adobe hasn't further commented on the bug outside Flohr's post. [...] While Adobe shouldn't be let off the hook for this error, perhaps the importance of multiple backups is the hard lesson we can learn from this.

    Nope . You'd be amazed how hard it is to seize copyright outside a legitimate dispute of ownership or a bankruptcy. Copyright works enjoy special protection. You can't just say "company x owes me money - seize the code."

    It gets even better - some jurisdictions don't allow any copyright you own to be seized in bankruptcy. And here, the first $60,00 per year that you earn from performance of a copyright work are tax exempt at the provincial level. Making me wonder if code running on a server is considered a performance of the copyright work.

    SoylentNews is social media. Says so right in the slogan. Soylentnews is people, not tech.

    If that is true, it can all be changed. Now is the time to start.
