I recently came across a video where Microsoft was basically slandering their standalone (pay-once and done) version of Office to try and encourage people to get on the subscription bandwagon. I thought it was interesting...here's an example of one of those ads.

Everyone knows the subscription model has come about purely to try and combat piracy.. :p

I'll give the video a watch when I have a spare moment though /me uses the shiny new bookmark feature.
This is true haha, it is also more money for the companies too. A lot of places are going to subscription based models. Not to mention that typically people stick to one version of office for as long as possible. Which means they spent maybe $130 on a perpetual license they may use for years without paying another cent, whereas paying a yearly Microsoft is getting a constant revenue flow.
