Hi,

Even after several phone calls with the support, I did not get any closer to solving my problem. I am therefore trying to do so in writing, hoping to get an answer to my questions.

 

I've been a customer of your Creative Cloud subscription for a long time and I really enjoy working with your applications. However, I do not fully understand your license terms, so I would really appreciate answers to the following questions.

 

Within Premiere Pro or Adobe Premiere Rush there is the possibility to download and use free animation templates from Adobe Stock. (An example: https://stock.adobe.com/de/templates/split-direction-title/224734544)

1. Can I also use videos in which I use such animation templates (such as lower thirds) for customers?

 

2. It is necessary to name the author of this animation template. For example, do I have to add the source of the animation in the video for a lower third? Wouldn’t it look pretty strange??

 

I ask for a generally understandable answer to these questions, the legal texts in your license conditions are - as mentioned at the beginning - incomprehensible to me.

 

With best regards and thanks in advance (sorry for my english)

Greetings from Germany

Stephan

Unfortunately, I can't see a way to help. 

I think that Adobe staff are not allowed to comment on or clarify legal documents. This is because the original license is the ONLY binding and relevant document; clarifications are not relevant in a court of law, which will only look at the license. If you seek a legal opinion you must ask your own lawyer. (In many countries it is also illegal for non-lawyers to offer a legal opinion).

Thanks for your fast feedback. In many other discussions here, the moderators were also able to give simple answers to simple questions about the use of the content. Many questions about licenses were answered here simply and competently. I don't want legal advice, I just want to know whether I can actually use the on-board tools from Premiere and Rush as expected. The legal texts mentioned are difficult to understand for a normal user. 🙂

additional: What worries me, is this sentence from the Stock-terms:

 

... Attribution. In addition to the obligations in section 5.1(F), if a Stock Asset is used in ..... (B) an audio-visual production, Customer must use commercially reasonable efforts to include attribution for Adobe Stock in accordance with industry standards, and where possible, in the following format: (1) for Works: “[Contributor Name]/stock.adobe.com”; and (2) for Audio Works: "[Song Title] performed by [Artist's Name]/via Adobe Stock".

 

Wouldn't that mean that all materials / Stock assets from Adobe Stock, including the free lower thirds, would have to be given attribution? Does that make any sense, or am I getting something completely wrong?
