Declan's take follows.

IMO:  Adobe doesn't get it.  Yes, one objective was to free someone
unjustly arrested.  However, the broader objective is to gut the law
under which he was arrested in the first place.  Adobe doesn't appear to
recognize that DMCA is fundamentally bad law, and a liability to the
company so long as it choses to exercise the law, as we demonstrated
today.

Cheers.
