It would be highly beneficial for Adobe stock to force Pond5 / Template Monster / Envato to verify
licenses of users who upload Premiere Mogrt or After Effects Templates.

Would give Adobe Stock a huge leverage, there must be some law/legal way to force it, no?

It would be highly beneficial

...and 1,000 times more beneficial to have hundreds of thousands of templates produced to keep the ecosystem dominant.

So, no, they won't do it.

it's not a contradiction, ->
templates will keep getting produced, it will just be guaranteed people are using adobe software legally.
it will also give adobe the upper hand in a few possible scenarios.

Like I said, it's worth more to have lots of free advertising being produced than going after the licenses of the advertisers.

The reason behind verifying would of course be that they thought that a significant part of the users did not have a license. Enforcing it would then force part of that theoretically large number of producers to focus on something else. More likely would be offering free licenses to content producers, something they are already doing!

Of course, they COULD enforce it, especially at places like Pond5, where sellers must upload official identification. Evidently, they do not think it's worth it.

It is not other agencies task to enforce legal Adobe software usage I believe.
