ajobbins: They are cutting the price in A/NZ to be on par with the US price
They're not cutting the prices the original question was about - ie. the Creative Suite product. They are reducing the Creative cloud pricing.
They're still happy to charge AU/NA customers twice the price for their traditional products, even when delivered electronically.
I recently bought Lightroom for under half the price the local adobe shop wanted to charge me.

ps. A government inquiry into retail pricing in a competitive market? God help us.
