To keep it simpler and just answer your title question... yes, you can use the trial version for commercial purposes.
(a) Evaluation Version. We may designate the Software or Services as “trial”, “evaluation”, “not for resale”, or other similar designation (“Evaluation Version”). You may install and use the Evaluation Version only during the evaluation period and only for evaluation purposes. You must not use any materials you produce with the Evaluation Version for anything other than non-commercial purposes.
(It was also that way for CS6 and before.)
Thank you for your answer. But then the first point is relevant:
Could I use the trial version to create something, then hand over the work and rights to someone with a license and have them use it commercially through their license? I guess not, as the purpose is commercial use and I monetize on it too. I guess I'll have to ask the publisher to provide a license. Thanks, you guys.
May I use it for creating presentations, sample works to show to potential clients?
And also I'd like to use the graphics for our website. We intend to buy Creative suite later on btw.
Thanks a lot for your reply.
