    What exactly does "One-time payment to own a license for Capture One Pro 22" mean in clear English? What exactly does "own a license" mean in clear English? Does own a license mean that I would own the license to Capture One Pro 22 in perpetuaty? What upgrades would be included, specifiacally if Apple created a chip after M1 Ultra, would I be able to use C1 Pro 22?

    I see now a letter from Capture One where they are preparing to kill off the perpetual license option. This is sad as it was precisely the reason I left Adobe - subscription-slavery.  I have bought the upgrades along the way so it’s not like they haven’t enjoyed cashflows from my perpetual license.  It’s just I had a bit more freedom to not upgrade or to delay upgrades when there is an insufficient value proposition for the upgrade on offer.   This is what they don’t like.  They want to force us to either continue to pay - regardless of our situation- or have our license completely turned off.  This is how you extract revenue from the base even when your particular upgrades don’t interest them - thus the - subscription slavery notion.  I’m very disappointed in this move and I will likely drop C1 and just use the Nikon freeware or go back to Adobe - if I have no way to escape a subscription.  This is a classic bait and switch as you guys made a big deal at the beginning as offering a choice of either license model.  You aimed to lure unhappy Lightroom users who didn’t like subscriptions.  Now that they have moved you pull the same unpleasant trick.  Anyway - thanks for the ride I enjoyed your software while it lasted…
