It's illegal to take a photo of the Eiffel Tower at night and use it for commercial purposes: the lighting arrangement itself is intellectual property. This illustrates some of the surprising complexities involved in licensing and creating media, and it’s a source of demand for clever licensing hacks for stock photos.
The growth of free stock photo sites like Unsplash means there’s more supply of free images, where users aren’t as explicitly purchasing the rights as they did before. This means there’s more room for legal issues and using photos of models, in particular, can lead to surprisingly complicated legal situations, since every state has different laws around model release forms. One novel solution to this problem, pioneered by a company called Generated Photos, is to avoid using human models at all and to generate realistic photos using artificial intelligence.
