I have read the different license agreements for adobe stock and I also read the FAQ about usage for logo creation, but I still have a question:
I would like to create a logo for a very small business and would like to use a graphic found on adobe stock for that.
My plan was to take the graphic and edit it a bit for to get my logo. I am fully aware that I do not own any exclusive rights, so everyone can use the graphic for their own content. I do not mind that the logo is not exclusive, and I do not want to register or trademark the logo.
Am I allowed to use the adobe stock graphics for that purpose or not?
In the FAQ to that question, Adobe states that it is not allowed because logos will be registered and protected and thus the use of adobe stock content is not allowed.
Since I am not going to register or protect the logo, I wonder if I can use the graphic or not?
Can anyone help me with the interpretation?
Do not use stock assets for logos.

(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).
