Although the standard licensing terms for an Individual account holder clearly state on Abode's license overview page (https://stock.adobe.com/au/license-terms) that:

You MAY:

  • Transfer the license to your client or employer.

And you MAY NOT: 

  • Transfer the license to more than one employer or client, unless separately licensed for each.

My interpretation of this is that I may transfer a license to ONE employer or client, but no more. Unless the term 'more than one' has been redefined to not include 'one' anymore, Adobe does not follow it's own terms as stated on it's own website. Adobe DOES NOT allow you to transfer a stock license, at all. Not even to one employer or client. 

 

I spent too much time on a support thread trying to understand how to tranfer a license, all to no avail. If anyone else has figured out how to do this, please let me know. If am interpretting the terms incorrectly, please let me know. I don't care to hear from Adobe on this thread, unless Adobe has an explanation that includes something other than quoting what you 'may not' do directly from your webiste.

I don't see how Adobe's actions or inactions apply here. You transfer the license. Done. You don't tell Adobe. There is no way to tell Adobe, just as you don't tell Adobe the books, web sites, and busses you reproduce your image on.

You can't transfer CREDITS.

More than one starts at 2! So where is the problem?

 

Example: You license an asset for customer A, do some work with the image (ie include into a brochure), transfer the work (with the license...to be complete that is a statement in your contract!!!) to that customer and you're done.

 

Customer B wants the same asset for his job, so you need to license again.

 

Customer A comes back and wants to use the asset for the Internet now. You include the asset into the site and you're done. Contract still states the license transfer. No need to license again as this is part of the initial license that you acquired from Adobe.
