Adobe and Jasc Software (makers of Paint Shop Pro, where this currency
restriction also applies) are taking this issue too far. They have no
doubt been pressured by the American government to take this step, but
it's pretty shameful. This is classic digital rights thuggery: Because a
service of product might be used for illegal purposes, we must restricts
its legal uses as well.

I completely agree.

Note that this issue does not only apply to US currency. A similar limitation concerning Euro notes has been reported today in the German press.
