Before I ventured into the world of stock photography if I saw my image being used somewhere I knew if they should be using it because all usage request came through me. Now using Adobe Stock how do you know if you see your image somewhere that they indeed purchased the rights? When your photos are licensed does the contributor get any information about how/who licensed it? For example, if I have an image that was licensed 5 times and I see it used in 10 different places how do I go about determining which was validly obtained and which was not?
Unfortunately we cannot provide buyer information to contributors at this time. If you find any suspicious usage, you can contact us and we will help you to identify if they were properly licensed or not.
