Dear Adobe team,
We plan to licence stock photos and video material to use it as background for our product videos on youtube.
In some cases, the stock material will be part of a complex composition and heavily altered, in other cases, we will just retouch and add the product photos in the foreground. To me, it is therefore hard to assess, if the credit to the photographer is mandatory.
1. Am I right to assume, that the credit to the author/photographer is optional, if the stock material is altered?
2. In general, can we use stock videos in our product videos on youtube within terms of the license ?
Could you please provide some details - fitting to our requirements?
Thanks for reaching out to our Stock team. As per the above query-
Please note: It entirely depends on what type of modifications are being made, for example, if it's just the colour change then the credit line must be included. However, if the changes are on a wider level, the credit to the photographer becomes optional.
Hope this information helps!
Feel free to update this thread in case of any additional questions.
