Hi! Wanted to ask a question about adobe stock licenses. Now I’m located in country where Adobe is not available ("...Russia, Belarus, and China...") , when I downloading paid photos and vectors (with trial) from Adobe stock I get the following message: “Licenses cannot be purchased online in your region. You may search and save preview files, but cannot license them via our online store.” (example : https://stock.adobe.com/ru/images/winter-holidays-and-celebration-concept-close-up-of-candle-burning... )

But if I download free photos and vectors (for example: https://stock.adobe.com/ru/images/led-strip-with-yellow-neon-glow-effect-isolated-on-background-vect... ) , this message does not appear.

 

So, can I use free Adobe Stock photos and vectors in Russia, Belarus, and China for commercial use?

Adobe can't do business in those countries for one reason or an other. But if you can acquire a licence, and in the license terms is not stated, that the assets can't be used in your region, I suppose that you have a rightful license then. But I'm not a lawyer.

 

Look here for more information on licensing: https://community.adobe.com/t5/stock/links-for-licensing-terms/td-p/11366788
(Disclaimer: As always with licensing, this is my interpretation of the rules. I think they are correct and advice is based on reading and interpreting the licence terms and on fair use for both the buyer and the artist/stock company, but I cannot rule out that my interpretation is wrong. I'm not an Adobe employee).
