It feels like borderline fraud wherein you purchase a perpetual license but due to changes in the underlying OS or their new subscription you didn't really get what you purchased. Perpetual license means perpetual license. Rendering it unusable unless you agree to forfeit that which you purchased is the fraud. I suspect a lawsuit might be necessary.

The problem is who has the time or money to invest in correcting this charade? Class actions suits are very difficult and expensive and there may not be enough money involved to justify it. Maybe Avid is well aware that this is borderline illegal and they are counting on the fact that it is more effort than its worth to challenge such an obviously underhanded scheme.
