Images from game, films etc in UI design project


#1

Hi everyone! Why some authors including me can’t use images from games, films if I’m making store or portal where as example want to show nike, ubisoft logos etc. What’s a problem? Also in themeforest in psd templates someones use watch dogs official preview images or playstation 4 for preview. Also last time I even could not use envato logo because reviewer told me to replace it but in vidoehive everybody use.

I only want use this images for preview otherwise it kills emotions about project and decrease designer’s posibilities. For example when I make an article and title it something like “Eminem music album” and as it’s preview use face picture from unsplash or imcreator - it just spoil design.

Administration and reviewers, with respect and a lot of thanks for envato, please notice this problem. Thanks.

Because these images are copyrighted and you don’t own them.

I get why you want to use them but that does not change copyright laws, and you could end up in a lot of trouble.

I know there are some files which get through with trademarked content but they shouldn’t and it is discussed here https://help.market.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/203269510-What-Assets-Can-I-Use-In-My-Items-#assets-preview-files

As for envato’s logo - I was always under the impression that this was ok but could be wrong and maybe check with support
