I found an Adobe Stock asset that I liked the other day, and considered downloading, but the item in question has a license type that would make it entirely useless to buy.
The item is an NFT Card Token Maker, which would be used to create an animated Card style NFT, which you would then (presumably) want to sell. It's a nice template, and could be useful. However, the license type is only Enhanced, which means the "Asset may [NOT] be used in merchandise, templates, or other products for resale", which would be the only purpose for a stock file of this type. Is this an error the artist made when adding the file, or am I missing something? If I cannot sell the NFTs I create, what is the point?
For reference, the stock file is: https://stock.adobe.com/templates/nft-card-token-maker/506952498/
Also, why is there not a way to contact the artist? The "best" option I found was to post to this support community, which likely won't actually solve anything... If I could contact the artist I could ask them, and maybe get it fixed...
There is indeed no way to contact the artist. The artist also has no choice over the license offered, and can't change the terms offered by Adobe. It does sound a particularly useless template if the Asset may not be used for merchandise - can you please link, though, to where it says "Asset may [NOT] be used in merchandise, templates, or other products for resale", Not sure what the [NOT] means in this case and why it is in brackets.
The brackets were my addition, including the "not" inside it, because this right is NOT the extended license. If you click the enhanced license on the linked asset you see the license comparison, and the only line NOT included is the one quoted, hence why I added the "NOT" in brackets. If this is an adobe decision (license type), why would they choose this type? Why is there no way to submit feedback about which license type was selected?
You need to read the terms correctly:
With an Enhanced license, you may not:
You can use, however, the asset for an item for sale where the main value lies in your creation. With templates, that's precisely what you do.
The asset you pointed out is a MOGRT file, which is a special file for use with Premiere Pro: https://helpx.adobe.com/premiere-pro/using/motion-graphics-templates.html.
