I'm very new here as a contributor. I have just started to analyse the Adobe Stock market to find inspiration and maybe even niches.
But something confused me a bit. I read this in the starting guide:
"Do not use trademarked names (ex. Porsche, iPad, Ferrari), camera specifications (ex. Nikon, 12MP), or type of content (ex. Vector, illustration) as keywords."
But I could search for something like "iPad" and then many pictures with an iPad in it appear using the keyword "ipad".
So now I'm just a bit confused wether i can use it or not. Is it just that it's not taken so seriously anymore or is it just about writing "ipad" instead of "iPad"?
Thanks for your help

Been researching a bit more and it makes more sense to me now. It's actually pretty obvious, that it's about writing "ipad" instead of "iPad".
so if you have any interesting comment about it, would be nice to hear.
But the question is answered
Don't write ipad or iPad in your keywords.
ok, so it's more a suggestion of Adobe so that in this case Apple wouldn't come upon me. Cause it's illegal to use these names.
But Adobe doesn't filter the pictures that have such keywords cause it's the uploader's risk, right/responsibility?
Sorry that I'm making such a big thing out of it. It's just that I imagine it really hard to compete against pictures that are using these keywords when I'm not using them myself.
Don't worry I'm not gonna use them, I just wanna do my work correctly here. So I'm trying to understand this and learn. So that I can get the most out of this within the legal boundaries.
