I've run into a conundrum where I want to purchase two 3-D models (one of a Boeing 787 and one of a Volvo semi truck with trailer) from Turbosquid for use in a commercial, but both models are listed under an editorial, non-commercial license, presumably because they are depicting real-world products.
However, there are other models of the exact same plane and truck (available at either a higher price or lower quality or I would've saved myself the dilemma) that are released under a standard royalty-free license for any use.
So who should I believe? Did the artists in the latter case not know what they were doing? Were the artists in the former case being too cautious? Might the latter artists have gotten special permission from the manufacturers to sell their models for commercial use?
And furthermore, is it on these artists if they released something under a commercial license that they shouldn't have? Or am I the one in trouble if I buy an improperly "commercially-released" Boeing airplane model and Boeing comes to me later saying that I used their stuff without their permission?
