I have a client who is a writer and she's having me design her book covers as well as the inner layouts. I've created a book cover design using a Standard License asset which I have since modified and added other elements to. In this case is the Standard License sufficient?

Reuben,I would suggest you to have the license transferred to your client (who will be the end seller) in order to prevent confusion. Please see the licensing terms for Adobe Stock here: https://wwwimages2.adobe.com/content/dam/acom/en/legal/servicetou/Adobe_Stock_Additional_Terms_en_US_20180605_2200.pdf (Section 3.4 a ) in order to get more details on the client use.Let me know if you have any further questions.Regards,Twarita

Hi Reuben,

Thanks for reaching out to the Adobe Stock community.

Ideally, if you are using an image from Adobe Stock in a book cover you should be using an Extended license(since the cover is basically the face of a book and a book cover can also reflect what is inside that book, so again this will help you in selling the book). Any asset of Adobe Stock which is used in merchandise or for reselling purpose needs an Extended license.

However, if you are modifying the image(majorly) and then using it for your book cover, then a Standard license is fine.

Please go through the Adobe Stock licensing terms and restrictions to know more Stock Licensing & terms FAQ: Where can I find the terms and licensing information for Adobe Stock?

Hope this information helps!

Feel free to update this thread in case of any additional questions.

Regards,

Twarita

Hello twaritar3263062,

Thank you for your reply. I've gone ahead and purchased the Extended License for the assets in question. However my concern now is this, I know I have the rights to use the image without certain limitations, but how about my client. If the book is designed by me for someone else and they're the end seller, is there an issue? Thank you for your help on this.

So according to the documentation, I would just have the client sign a written statement indicating that they will follow the stipulation in the Stock Licensing Term? But if they don't, I will then incur the penalties, is that about right?

Yes, that is right the client needs to sign a written statement indicating that they will follow the stipulation in the Stock Licensing Term.
