Good morning, 

 

Is the licence that come with my adobe stock subscription allow me to use models to imply that they are patients that recovered from a mental heath disorder?

 

Thank you, 

 

Mathieu

Adobe will not clarify their license - since in a court only the written words of the license can be taken into account, no matter what anyone intended or promised. And I am not a lawyer. This is a very important point, and you NEED to consult a lawyer on it if you don't find the license clear. I will draw your attention especially to this point:

"7. Restrictions.
7.1. General Restrictions. You must not...

[skipped some lines]

(E) use the Stock Assets in a manner, or in connection with a subject, that a reasonable person could consider
unflattering, immoral, offensive, obscene, or controversial, taking into account the nature of the Stock Asset,
examples of which could include ads for tobacco; adult entertainment clubs or similar venues or services; implied or
stated endorsements of political parties or other opinion-based movements; or implying mental or physical
impairment;" I do not attempt to interpret this, because (I must repeat) I am not a lawyer.

I would recommend to look up the licensing terms and decide if your use case fits. If you can't reach a conclusion, you should consult a lawyer specialized in this matter.

 

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).
