Hello to everybody!
This is my question: I have written an e-book that I intend to sell on Amazon. This e-book contains more than 120 photos, of which 16 downloaded by me from Adobe Stock with a Standard License.
Can I or cannot freely insert these 16 Standard License photos in my e-book?
I want to specify that these photos are not the primary value of my e-book, since they have the only function of illustrating the text, text that is the main value of my work.
Thanks for the answer,
As you say, that the images are not the primary value of your book, you can see from the licensing terms, that a standard licence is required if the print run (including the virtual run) is less than 500k.
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).
Jill_C and Abambo,
thanks for the answers.
Good luck with your self-published book !
Thank you so much, Jill!
