Printing on demand with just one license?

So, an online-shop that sells posters and other print products bought an extended license for one of my photos and put it into their shop.
I happen to know, that this shop is printing products on demand, as the orders come in. I once was a direct contributor in that shop and earned 15% of every sale of my photos. Then they kicked me out and bought one of my best selling pictures with extended license to sell it themselves.

But they are not allowed to do that, right?
Because every order, would require a new license, since it's always a new customer/client.

It would be okay, if they produced a large amount of posters and sell those to different customers, but can they really print as many copies on demand with the extended license?

It is allowed with an extended license. It is also allowed with API partner sites. Customers are allowed to make a one time print for personal use with the standard license. A customer can purchase a standard license on behalf of one client. The API partner purchases a standard license for a one time print for personal use on behalf of their client.

An Extended license purchase does allow an image to be used an unlimited number of times on a product such as a poster.

What you are referencing about purchasing a new license each time a product is ordered is the Partner API program which does not require an Extended license.

Kind regards,

OK, the shop is putting this on-line (or off-line) and each time a customer knocks on their door to get a print, they print on demand a poster.

Is that allowed with an extended license? And if not, what could the rights owner do? How does he appeal?

Hi I know this is an old thread and I'm trying to understand the correct  to license or use adobe stock for print on demand services.  With the free adobe stock images that have a standard license, if I utilize the API to get a standard license on behalf of each individual order then that is acceptable versus purchasing an extended license for each image?

Have you read the Stock API FAQs? You need a Contract to set up a Print on Demand business, which presumably will include an answer to your question.

If you want to use the API, you will need to have an Enterprise plan. And yes, you can sell single prints with a print-on-demand service. Each time a user asks a print, the asset gets licensed. I do not know, if the free assets are included in such a deal. You will need to check with Adobe sales.

 

But as I understand, you would like to sell print on demand assets for the free image base in Adobe stock. That won't work, as the plan you will need to take will cost something, and the user is anyhow paying the licence fees with the prints. That's the small part of the price.

Looking at the short of the terms you have this:

  • Asset may be featured in merchandise or products for resale.

In your case, the product is your picture. They don't sell paper. They sell a picture. So I suppose they would need a different kind of license.

That's what I thought...

Otherwise, that would mean, I can buy ONE extended license for an image and use it for as many clients and on as many different products as I want, whenever I want and forever...

If it's a poster, a website, a handout, a coffemug... Whatever. No need to ever buy any license for that image again.

Correct?

Maybe this makes it clearer:

Thats the shop with my picture and it is sold as whatever the client wants....
