There's absolutely NOTHING illegal about it or they couldn't and wouldn't do it. If you think you know more than Adobe's ENTIRE legal team, sue, but you'll lose and you'll have to pay all costs.
You always have the option to download the Adobe Flash Player installer directly by clicking one of the following links.
Ther's nothing bundled with those.
By your logic nobody would ever brake the law because it was illegal.
Agreed i think they are breaking the law just because they know we need their software to watch vid's on the internet. They are abusing their market power to install this crap on our computers without any permission from the user, or even a notification unless you watch it install itself.
I would bet they are getting a payment from McAfee for every installation and don't care that we all uninstall it straight away.
Adobe are now in a race with EA to see who sux more.
