I have questions regarding using a licensed image as part of a logo or trademark. One question would be what are the regulations if I license it and slightly alter it and use it and the other was if I use it strictly as I downloaded it. I have found a couple that I really like for a product I intend to sell on Etsy and hopefully other places which license do I need to use that image and could I actually trademark that image if I chose to? I'm actually working on a customized logo but there are two images from stock that I really like as well and I represent my product fairly well especially for the trial Market on Etsy.
Please excuse typos....I am using speech to text.
Please see the answer below:
No. You need to have complete ownership of the image you use for your company logo, since logos are intended to be registered and protected to prevent other companies or organizations from using the same image. Because Adobe Stock only grants a right to use images and does not transfer the ownership, these images cannot be used in or as a logo.
You may also refer to Common Questions, Adobe Stock for more details.
