Hello everyone,

I have a situation and I hope you can help me. I tried to find a similar answer here on the forum with no success. The situation is like this:

I am building an website with my partner. Both of us had membership on Adobe Stock and we licensed some images on each account (standard licences). Before launching the website we are planning to create a limited company where one of us will be the shareholder (100%) and the other one will be the Director. The Director will not have any shares in this company but the website domain is in his name.

Questions;

1. Can we use on this website images licensed on both accounts?

If not:

1.1. Can the owner of this new company use his licensed images if the images were licensed in his personal name?

1.2. If the Director will be a shareholder as well, can we both use the images on this website?

2. I licensed an image with two individuals in it and I am wondering if for the images where you can clearly see people faces is enough the standard license?

I know the above might sound a bit odd, but we just want to make sure we'll use the images in a correct / legal way.

Cheers!

Sheena,

Thanks for your reply. I've read almost everything and  I understood the following:

We can use the images licensed on two different account for the same website, as long as we're not using the same images for any other websites or with any other purpose.. Is this correct? If not, I would appreciate if you make this clear.

Cheers

You would be correct. But to clarify further if you owned the websites you could use them on all websites you/business own.

For example, I have three different sites that I am the owner for I could use them on all of them. If the three sites were client sites, then yes, you would need a license for each one.

As for both of you using images on the same site that is fine. Doesn't matter who licensed them as long as they are licensed.

Hi,

Please refer to the licensing terms and usage as below:

Stock Licensing & terms FAQ: Where can I find the terms and licensing information for Adobe Stock?

Let me know if that helps!

Regards,

Hi Sheena,

Thanks for your reply.

I am still a bit confused as is not written anywhere if the owner of the license has to be the owner of the website. I would appreciate if you can make a bit more light for my particular situation. We don't want to be in trouble for using the licensed images in a wrong way...I prefer to pay for the images instead of using them without having the right to do so.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

There is nothing in the terms that state you have to be the owner of the website to use images you have licensed.  Please refer to the terms for employer/client use which may help in your situation.

Thanks Brad! It's all clear now.

If Sheena or someone else from Adobe stock support can confirm this would be great!

Cheers!

You are right!

You can use different images on the same website.
