Hello,

I found this in the terms of service for the stock photo's:
The Content may only be used and copied for your own, non-commercial, personal or educational purposes, provided that the Content are not modified and that copyright and other intellectual property notices are not deleted. You may not create derivative works from or otherwise exploit the Content in any way.

So when I use, for example, an e-commerce website, using my e-commerce license, I am not able to use any of the stock photo's, because that would be commercial use.

In effect, upgrading to a higher version in order to use the stock-photo's is useless, right?

Hi!
If you're thinking about BillionPhotos I believe you can use them for commercial use.
The BillionPhotos FAQ says:
"May I sell themes or websites containing images from BillionPhotos?
Yes, you may sell themes or websites containing images from BillionPhotos to individual customers. However, it is not allowed, to place these themes on third-party websites in order to offer them for reselling, except for selling the themes on BillionThemes (when this capability becomes available). It is also not allowed, to put the themes, as well as modified themes or theme screenshots, on third-party websites for preview or for download.

Hi,

The Terms of Use article is more related to the content of the site itself and not to the provided services. So you are free to use the BillionPhotos media in your site as long as you do not sell images itself.

Sincerely,
Hella
