Hey there! 

 

Am I allowed to sell products (in my case Print On Demand products - such as mugs and t-shrits) that I created with pictures I used from the section "free" in Adobe Stock?

 

I didn't find anything on the topic "licensing" for free pictures.

 

Thanks a lot for your answers!

 

Yours,

Klaus

It's not free or not free, but it's the licence type that comes with the assets. As free images come with a standard licence, you can't use them for mugs, t-shirts etc.  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).

Thank you for your answer! You helped me a lot!!

May I ask a further question?

What about the licensing in this case:

I would like to use those "community 3D-Material assets" for Adobe Illustrator (https://substance3d.adobe.com/community-assets?assetType=substanceMaterial&ca=fabricLeather) and create some 3D -Charakters and sell them on Mugs and Shirts. Am I allowed to do that?

 

Thanks a lot in advance!

 

Yours,

Klaus

The materials here are for Substance. I would doubt that you can use this in Illustrator. However, when you create your own 3d models and apply these materials, I would assume that you are free to use the rendered pictures as you like. I haven't read the licensing terms here, however, and there is no relation with Adobe stock.

 

This is my layman's approach to the problem. The same disclaimer as above is valid.

Thank you so much for your fast reply!!

Then I will search for those licensing terms. Thank you!


With the latest update (or at least since April), it's possible to use those 3D-Effects in Illustrator. 

 

Yours,

Klaus
