I know there are several discussions already to this topic and I have read every single one of them, but none of them can be exactly applied to my concern; hence, please allow me to add another discussion to this topic. I have spoken to several Adobe staff via call and chat and read pretty much every single word on this website, but I just want to be absolutely sure that I understand everything correctly. I would be very happy if a staff from Adobe who is authorized/specialized to answer questions pertaining to licensing can help me out.
Situation: assuming you would like to create a book which is meant to be sold and you would produce in total less than 500'000 copies. No editorial photos and no stock photos containing people will be used. No Adobe Stock photo will appear on the cover. The book is of no political, pornographic or sensitive topic. The Adobe Stock photos would merely be used as decorative elements on the pages inside the book.
1. Does a standard license suffice for such a project, assuming all of the above? From my understanding of the general terms & conditions and the forum answers, it should definitely suffice.
2. Assuming the standard license suffices, do the stock photos need to have a credit? From my understanding, only editorial works should contain a credit line. If the photos need to be credited, does the by-line have to be under each stock photo or is it enough if the credit is in the information page in the beginning of the book?
Thanks in advance for your help.
