I'm hoping a legal expert from Adobe can answer my specific question.  I have standard licenses on a series of images that I would like to use in a booklet that I am intending on selling. The images are secondary to the content, however, I'm getting conflicting answers as to which license would be necessary. The images I am wanting to license will be used as illustration purposes and isn't the main topic or asset for sale.  Therefore, I'm confused as to which license is necessary. Will standard work for this?

Adobe employees will point to the licensing terms and that's it. They will not interpret the licensing terms except in very rare cases as Adobe may be liable if their advice is wrong. In general you should ask your legal expert for any question on this.

 

The license terms are quite clear here. Ask yourself: would a buyer buy the book because of the 2 or 3 illustrations or because of the content you created? Except if the book would feature mainly the illustrations, where you would need an extended license, it will be enough to have a standard license, except if the print run (including digital distribution) would exceed 500k copies.

 

Disclaimer:

My advice here is purely informal as I'm not a trained lawyer. In addition I'm not an Adobe employee! I, however believe that my advice here is correct, given the information I got are correct.
