Legal security when using reference images (structure and style): What is allowed?

Dear Firefly-community,


I have a question when it comes to using reference images in Adobe Firefly. Am I legally allowed to upload images purchased by me from Adobe Stock into Firefly and use them as reference images for the structure or style? Am I allowed to generate new images inspired by these reference images? And may I then use the images generated in this way commercially, e.g. as book covers, music album covers etc.?

I am asking this because I want to be absolutely sure that I am not infringing any copyrights.


P.S.: Since I know, it is NOT allowed to google pictures and use them as reference images in Firefly. But my question aims on purchased images from Adobe Stock.

Thank you!

You should consult legal counsel if you need legal advice to make a business decision. The licensing terms for Adobe Stock are documented in: Adobe Stock license information and here: Adobe Stock Additional Terms.

 

I cannot advise you, but if I was deciding the question for myself, as long as the resulting Firefly image was not used in a way that violated the Adobe Stock licence agreement, I would not be concerned.

Thanks for your answer! I think the same but I hoped for an Adobe official to come by and give an answer. If they offer such a product AND say that it is for commercial use (I read the licensing terms before I posted this) THEN I expect them to clarify on such questions. So my questions is still on...

You're unlikely to get a response from anyone at Adobe, other than to steer you towards the License Agreement. The License does says that each of the Licenses (Standard, Enhanced and Extended) allows you to modify the asset in order to incorporate it into your designs.

Would be good to have someone from Adobe weigh in, but I suspect this is not intended to apply to Firefly. More for other AI services or building/training your own models.

There is a more recent version of the license agreement (Dec 2022) but the wording regarding AI is still there though reworded a bit. I would not assume that it doesn't apply to Firefly since that is not specifically stated.
