Do clients need to own the rights of any stock art
Hi everyone – I’m a freelance graphic designer. I have a question about stock art etc – I have a Premium subscription to a stock site and their license says I am free to use images for both personal and commercial projects and to modify it, as well as in a website or presentation or app as part of the design.
What happens if I download a photo and then use it as part of a design for a sell sheet for a client? And then the client pays me for the design? Isn’t this standard procedure – or legally, is the client supposed to download the photo and give it to me to use – in a sense, must the client own rights to any imagery use?
Am I “selling” the art to them if I download it and use it in a design that they pay me for?
