Title: Use Stock images in Stock videos projects
Post by: vectorsforall on March 29, 2019, 12:47
Hi,
I have a question : I would like to create a video with camera flying over world maps.
Do I have the right to buy a stock image of a world map and then use it in my stock videos and put it for sale in stock agencies ?
Or do I have to sell a specific licence ?
Thanks

You use the same free map (this is allowed) used by everyone else, including the people selling them unchanged as their own.

No.

Ok, so even with an extended licence ?

Which map do you want to buy? Do you have a link?

I don't know of any that allow that kind of use, you could buy the copyright.

Since most people aren't spending a lot of time up in space, they all use or base their images on maps from NASA.

No. Everything in a video or image that you upload to a stock site to sell, you need to own copyright to. You wonít be the copyright holder of the image you download.

Not true, as evidenced by the thousands of images and videos using these maps from NASA.

Since we are allowed - AFAIK - with an extended licence for example on istockphoto to use these images on products for resale (mugs, T-shirts etc.) and also Electronic templates for resale: website template, brochure design template, e-greeting cards, etc.
I thought it was allowed but maybe i was wrong..

Yes, it would be possible if at the same time they wouldn't have this rule:

"You must own or control the copyright to all content you submit"

Copyright ownership and license for resale aren't the same.

Btw, they also say this:

"Public domain content cannot be submitted under any circumstances. If you do not have complete rights to the content, you may not submit it."

Have no idea why they accept it then :)

Yes weird. I think I will edit my own map with oceans names, countries and cities titles. Will take some time to create but surely will avoid any copyright issue

The OP didnít ask about NASA or public domain images. They asked about downloading other peopleís images and using those.

They asked about world maps. Since basically all world map imagery is based on or use the original NASA images, it felt relevant. :)

Not too many people have been up in space to see for themselves.

And it's still not true that you have to own the copyright to everything in your images since you in fact are allowed to use NASA images.

Since that's where world maps come from for stock use, no. Sometimes you have to think one step further.

Quite relevant when the OP is looking for... a world map. :)

See Seanís answer no. 1. Wonder why you didnít argue with him? Rhetorical question, I know why. ;)

He didn't say that you have to own the copyright to everything. You did. That is why. Not any other reason you may or may not imply.
