Re: Please consider signing this petition to Adobe
This is not the White House's direct responsibility. The Federal Trade Commission and the Justice Department would be the parties to contact.
Also, as much as most of us dislike Adobe's decision, this is not enough of an impact on enough of the American people to warrant White House attention. Or monopoly investigations by the Justice Department. For instance, cable companies are much worse offenders for the average person and there are fewer viable alternatives to cable than we have alternatives to Adobe products. Not to mention issues like the scandals on Wall Street and a still-obstructionist Congress. And now the IRS.
Basically, starting in the early 1980s corporations gained significant power they hadn't had in quite some time. That accelerated in the early 2000s and it will take a lot of suffering from a lot people to change it more to the pre-1980 power that consumers and small operators had that's been largely if not completely lost. Adobe is knowingly or unknowingly taking advantage of this sea change, and it's likely that it will take market forces (or lots of petitions) and voting with wallets to change their decision.
