Hi!

I noticed that the contributor DigitalGenetics ( Search photos by DigitalGenetics , DigitalGenetics photos, images, assets | Adobe Stock )   sells the renderers of the Evermotion  ready-made 3d sceneswith almost no change.

Is this acceptable from the point of view of the Adobe Stock?

If so, can anyone buy these scenes and make almost the same pictures? Is it ok?

I think this will create a huge number of identical images from different authors.

for example:

Untitled-1.jpg

Untitled-2.jpg

Per Evermotion’s  EULA , the image was sufficiently modified with several changed objects by the Adobe Stock contributor. From Evermotion’s EULA:

9. The Licensee which bought the Evermotion Products shall not sell single renders, unchanged models on a homogeneous background. Licensee may sell renders only if they are part of the design. The renders of single models of plants, people and vehicles shall not be sold even in the changed form.

Good question...

Out of the: "LICENCE AGREEMENT FOR EVERMOTION PRODUCTS

ENTREPRENEUR AND CONSUMER LICENCE" https://evermotion.org/shop/page/5/eula

§2 Subject of the Agreement

1. This Agreement does not convey to Licensee any intellectual property rights or copyrights.

3. The subject of this Agreement is granting to the Licensee the right to use the Evermotion Products for commercial and private purposes, in the area of the whole world excluding their further resell, giving, sharing whether for remuneration or not, sublicense, distribute or multiply.

4. This Agreement constitutes the basis for granting the licence for the Evermotion Products and not for the sale of the Evermotion Product as such.

5. The Licensee obtains personal, revocable, non-exclusive, non-transferable Licence for selected Evermotion Products, save for the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

I´m not an expert in this, I don´t make renderings, but for myself, it sound´s like that it is not allowed to resell those products from Evermotion .

But I think the only correct answer could be given by the specialists from Fotolia/Adobe Stock...

Yes, this is a complex copyright issue.

But, in any case, another question arises. Is it permissible to use the authors of rendered scenes from an EVERMOTION or similar? They can be purchased by any person and he simply clicks the "render" button.

It seems to me that the author of the idea and the composition in this case is EVERMOTION. But not the Fotolia/Adobe Stock contributer. Perhaps , such images should not be accepted.

But I also think, the only correct answer could be given by the specialists from Fotolia/Adobe Stock.

In the forum of Evermotion someone asked if they could sell renders in microstock in which they appeared scenes or models of evermotion and someone of the staff responded that yes, that there was no problem.

In case I asked directly to Adobe Stock / Fotolia, and they answered me that their terms and conditions indicate that the contributors must be the copyright owners of all the components of the content that they send them. For they it is impossible to know when some component may have been created by a third party, so they usually go unnoticed, unless it is too obvious. However, if there is any legal problem, the contributor is solely responsible.

For this reason, they do not recommend using objects or components created by third parties, even if they allow their use commercially, as this does not transpose the copyright.

This is not correct: the terms say, that you have to own all rights to publish the asset. There is nowhere a statement about the copy right. So therefore you can use models and scenes for your renderings, if you have a commercial license.

The support gave often contradicting answers in the past in that matter.

It is possible that there is a legal void, but this can lead to for example several contributors having the same renders on sale.

Also, maybe using some elements, furniture or environments may be allowed by evermotion, but they use some protected elements like the MACOSX interface and application logos, such as in this image:

"3d modern office interior render" Stock photo and royalty-free images on Fotolia.com - Pic 158900565

Or the photo with the background buildings in this one:

"3d modern office interior render" Stock photo and royalty-free images on Fotolia.com - Pic 15907860...

Maybe there is no problem in using some elements, but rendering practically unchanged seems risky, I do not think that Shutterstock or Fotolia allow it, another thing is that they do not realize.

It is a complex matter, i think.

I'm more interested in the opinion of the Adobe Stock / Fotolia. The rendering of  ready-made commercial 3D scenes for photobanks is essentially the resale of someone else's design idea and composition. I also have a license to sell images of these scenes from the EVERMOTION. I can also upload the same pictures for sale.

If EVERMOTION says "ok" and Adobe Stock / Fotolia says "ok" - we get the same pictures from different authors. Is that really good?

No, it's not good. Thats the reason why I change things in the scenes and post process them differently. But in practice it's already happening for several years, that there are portfolios with the same images (slightly different due post processing though).

Unfortunately, this does not look like the your individual changes of EVERMOTION 3D scenes.

Most likely you just moved the camera and clicked the "render" button.

This is the problem that I'm talking about. If I also render this scene for Fotolia? We will have similar images from different contributors!

Thanks for putting me on your blame wall.

If you like, you can do the same. Btw: the scenes are usually very slow, meaning the rendering takes sometimes a day (with Octacore i7).

Thank you very much, you are very generous.)

I would like to hear the opinion of specialists from Fotolia/Adobe Stock before uploading the same renders of EVERMOTION ready-made scenes.

Either it can be done by everyone, or it can not be done

Yes, thats the point.

We need someone to clarify it.

Until I was 100% sure I would not. And someone from the Adobe staff advised me not to.

Thank you, Mat.
IMO, this part of their EULA doesn't say anything about their pre-designed scenes, though.
- You may not sell single unchanged models as isolated items, but you may sell them as part of a wider design.
- You may not sell single plants, people or vehicles as isolated objects, not even if they're changed.
- You may sell scenes/wider designs (you made yourself!) as stock imagery, BUT *their* scenes could still be protected on their own.
At least we now know that AS doesn't seem to have any issues with that. Maybe someone of those involved - I'm not - should directly ask back with Evermotion then.
Other than that it always comes down to the same question: What is "sufficiently modified"?

Can you specifically say about this examples?  Is it "sufficiently modified"?
