Is Adobe overreacting? Or was this the US intention?

So, according to this story (one of many), Adobe is going to cut off all Venezuelan customers. It looks like it’s struggling with the latest OFAC Executive Order, which blocks all assets of the “Government of Venezuela” – and that includes all associated persons (i.e. all government employees). And that seems to be the problem – because it can’t reliably tell government employees from other Venezuelans, Adobe is cutting off all business to the country.

Mr. Watchlist wonders – was this part of the Trump Administration’s machinations, or just a happy side effect?
