Adobe Systems Incorporated Terms of Use

The Photoshop trademark must never be used as a common verb or as a noun. The Photoshop trademark should always be capitalized and should never be used in possessive form, or as a slang term. It should be used as an adjective to describe the product, and should never be used in abbreviated form.
 
^That sucks, dude. Why would Adobe want to curb it's product name from gaining popularity?
 
just to protect their trademark.... legal language can seem quite silly on the face of it, but for the most art there is some rationale behind it.
 
digg had another interesting article showing adobe using Photoshop® as a verb themselves on their own site.
