I have been looking for illustrations for the commercial website I'm building and I am a bit confused by some license terms and would like to know if someone with experience could answer.
Flaticon makes it pretty clear that websites and blogs are part of its license:
You are authorized to use Flaticon images for your own blog and website as main or secondary elements.
On the other hand, Adobe Stock states the following restrictions in its terms, section 7)1)A :
use the Stock Assets in any way that allows a third party to use, download, extract or access the Stock Assets (1) as a stand-alone file
and the same for VectorStock for example in its FAQ, section 1)b :
Content is strictly prohibited from being used where there is the potential for the file to be downloaded, copied in any way or extracted, reinstated or restored by a third party.
In my mind, it is fairly easy for anyone using the devtools to extract the image as a separate file. How does this licensing work then ? In one place they say that we can use at will on websites (for ex on Abode 3.1 section "audience size does not apply to Works displayed only on websites, social media sites, or mobile applications"), but in the restrictions that we should protect the media.
Are devtools considered a workaround protecting us enough ?
Thanks to anyone with experience in that domain !
