Hey there, 

I have to excuse myself for the bad english first but Im from Germany. 

Im wondering how far I can go with the standard-license. Like Im playing a game where there are online-servers and Im creating a special wallpaper with one of the images from here. We are just implementing it in the system and the people which are also playing on the server ar able to see it. The server doesnt make any money out of that.

Im not like just downloading the Stock-Image and sending it to this server - im creating something new out of it to implement it. If im not completely off this should be ok right?

No trouble you can also write in German if that suits you better.

 

First a general remark: The license needed is the same if you are doing something for profit or just as a hobby. There is no difference on that. It doesn't make any difference if you're modifying the image or if you're using the image as it is. 

 

Now you to determine the license type you need, you need to ask yourself a question: Is the asset the primary reason for the "consumer" to buy or use your service or product. If you answer this with "no" you are probably OK with a standard license. (probably, because there are still some other conditions attached, but I do not think that they are relevant for you). 

 

If you answer with a "yes", you will need an extended license. This would be the case if you print the image (modified or not) on a T-shirt and sell that T-shirt...

 

In your case: The primary service is the game, the image asset is just one element in the game that makes it more pleasant to play. It's not offered as a download game with extractable assets: Standard license.

 

Nb. If you prefer an Answer in German, I can provide that also.

Hey, danke für die Antwort. 

Mir geht es eher darum, dass in den Richtlinien steht, dass man solch ein Bild nicht "weitergeben darf". 
Wie gesagt durch das Bild selber wird kein Gewinn erzielt, es ist nur eine Art Deko. 
Ich werde das Bild aber ein wenig bearbeiten, dass es ins Design passt und es dann an die "Stelle", die das Bild für den Server einpflegt weitergeben. Das heißt also dass ich nicht das ganze Stock-Bild weitergebe, sondern nur die bearbeitete Version, die dann eingefügt werden kann. 

Ist das okay?
