I respectfully ask Adobe Stock to look into their Russian contributors and remove those supporting the Russian war against Ukraine. I was about to license an image and noticed that the contributor was Russian. While I know not all Russians support the war crimes being committed against Ukraine, others do. I researched this contributor and found her social media page. The very first post was a pro-Russian patriotic propaganda video with a chorus of Russians all wearing scarves with the infamous "Z".  Needless to say, I did not license the image from Adobe Stock. Please, please, please Adobe. Do what is right and remove those Russian contributors who are blatant supporters of the Ukranian invasion.

I appreciate Adobe's stance on Russia's invasion of Ukraine. I also know that it is difficult to track the political activities and opinions of all contributors, nor would it be right to do so. However, given the horrific and dangerous actions taken by Russia, I would encourge Adobe to block those Russians who support Putin's efforts.

I'm not Adobe, so I do not speak for Adobe. I'm aware that Adobe has taken certain steps to protect all stakeholders from the current situation and avoid misuse of their tools. And yes, you're right, it's impossible to background check all contributors and that independently of where they are.

 

If you have a specific item from a contributor that is inappropriate, you can denounce it here (asset number), and the Adobe team will have a look at it and take appropriate action.

 

Or you contact Adobe customer service. Adobe customer care can be contacted by beginning a secure chat session at https://helpx.adobe.com/contact.html?rghtup=autoOpen. Pop-up blockers need to be disabled! If the chat window fails to open, or is non-responsive, use a different device to start the interaction.
Support phone numbers may be found here: https://helpx.adobe.com/contact/phone.html. Please note that phone charges may apply.

Meanwhile, I will lock this discussion.
