I have hired freelance workers for my commercial project. They own licenses for the products I want them to use (Adobe software) to create illustrations. An Adobe representative told me that whoever owns the license owns the intellectual property rights to the creations - which in this case would be the freelance workers.
However, the contract that the freelancers agreed to and signed included a clause stating that all work produced by them during this time would become property of my company.
Given this agreement, will I own the work if they own the licenses?
This is for a company based in India.
