    Image restrictions

      Do any of the additional restrictions from section 3.1 from 'Adobe_Stock_Terms_en_US-20150313_hpc.pdf' apply to pharmaceutical usage? example : Using 'Work' to portray person in photo  as suffering from, or medicating for, a physical or mental ailment?

          I would say if the image is used as intended by the contributor there would be no problem. Also assuming that the pharmaceutical products/services are widely recognized and recommended by the medical profession and are not showing the person in a view they may not wish to be seen in.

           

          Example 1: A person in a photo that obviously suffering from a headache (you can often tell just by the contributors key words) used in context of medication for headaches would be probably fine.

           

          Example 2: A photo of a seemingly healthy middle-aged man looking all happy used in a product such as Viagra may not be acceptable as the model may not wish to be associated with that type of product.

            Thank you for reply, could you give further clarification...

             

            As in example 2 above, would we be covered to use similar images to portray persons 'living with' or treating diseases/conditions such as, Diabetes, IBS or Cancer, or any other medical condition, if we used a disclaimer, such as "*Not actual patient"?
