Digital Download License FAQ’s
We know that getting your head around complex licensing rights can be confusing. So we’ve put together the Threadosaurus Standard and Extended Licenses – written in plain english – to help you easily understand the digital download license that comes with every product on Threadosaurus.
Standard License: Items purchased under the Standard License may be used to create End Products for Sale where lifetime sales of the End Product for Sale do not exceed 500 units.*
Extended License: Items purchased under the Extended License may be used to create End Products for Sale that may be sold an unlimited number of times.*
All Access Pass: Purchasing an All Access Pass grants you a standard license for all products downloaded. Extended Licenses must be purchased on a per product basis.*
*Strictly NO use in software, mobile or web applications. E.G. Clothing templates cannot be used to create a software mock-up tool where people can upload their own images and export a finished mock-up template, even if it’s free.
General FAQ’s and Definitions.
What is Personal Use, Commercial Work, Contracted Work, Client Work, etc.?
Both the Standard and Extended Licenses allow for Personal Use and Commercial Work of many kinds. However, if purchased Items are used in an End Product For Sale (whether by you or a client), special terms apply (a limit of 500 units sold under the Standard License, and an unlimited amount of units sold under the Extended License).
Personal Use is defined as using purchased Items in a manner that has no potential monetary gain. Personal Use projects cannot be related to any business, non-profit, or other organization of any kind. All purchased Items may be used in an unlimited number of Personal Use Projects. Examples of Personal Use include using a graphic to create t-shirts for a family reunion, using a template to create a birthday card that you send in celebration of a friend’s special day, using a photo in a piece of wall art that you create for family member as a gift (no money changes hands), etc.
We define Commercial Work to be any work done that is not for Personal Use. Synonymous terms include Contracted Work and Client Work.
How many times can I use a purchased item?
A purchased Item may be used in one Project. As an exception, Installable Items may be used in an unlimited number of Projects on a one seat per license basis. A Project is defined as a complete and cohesive undertaking that may result in one or more End Products. Any End Products included in the one Project must be directly related under a single concept. However, all purchased Items may be used in an unlimited number of Personal Use Projects.
For example, if you sell t-shirts in an online shop and you purchase a t-shirt mockup to display your shirt designs, you are allowed to use that mock-up in multiple End Products, each one displaying one of your shirt designs, because each of these End Products is directly related to marketing the t-shirt designs in one shop. Another acceptable use case would be using a purchased texture to create an End Product t-shirt design for a client who owns a clothing company, and then using that same texture to create an End Product of mailers that are sent out to advertise that same clothing brand.
Conversely, you are not allowed to purchase a graphic to include in an End Product flyer design that you create for a real estate company, and then use that same graphic when designing the End Product of a website for a hairdresser, because these are unrelated End Products and therefore do not fall under the same Project.
Item Packs and Bundles:
Item Packs and Bundles are Items that contain multiple Sub-Items. Project limits apply to Individual Items within Packs or Bundles in the same way they would apply to those Items if the Items were to be sold on their own outside of a Bundle or Pack (unlimited Projects for Fonts and other Installable Items, and one Project for all other Item types). In the case that a Bundle or Pack contains further Bundles or Packs, project limits for each Item within those subsequent Bundles or Packs apply in the same way they would apply to those Items if the Items were to be sold on their own outside of a Bundle or Pack (unlimited projects for Fonts and other Installable Items, and one Project for all other Item types).
When Sub-Items within Item Packs or Bundles are used, they do not all have to be used in the same End Product nor the same one Project. For example, an Item Pack containing 10 icons could potentially be used in 10 Projects if only one icon is used per Project and each icon is used only once.
How many computers can I use Threadosaurus products on?
Both the standard and Extended license allow you to use each product on up to three personal computers at one times as long as you own all three computers.
Is there any limit to the number of impressions for my End Product?
For the most part, there is no limit to the number of impressions for your End Product. However, when purchased Items are used in TV, films, streaming video, on demand broadcasts, and/or online videos, exceptions apply. For these mediums, your End Product is allowed up to 10,000 views per month. For anything over 10,000 monthly views, contact the shop owner directly in order to inquire about further rights options.
Can I redistribute Items I’ve purchased?
No, items purchased are for your use only. You may not include the original purchased items (or source files) in any distributed end products.
Do I have to credit the original designer of an Item when I use it?
No, but that would make our year if you did!
How much does an Extended License cost?
Each product has its own price for both the Standard and Extended Licenses, so prices will vary from Item to Item.
Do all Threadosaurus products offer an Extended License option?
No. Installable Items do not have an Extended License option (similar rights are available under the Standard License for these Items). Additionally, Threadosaurus holds the right to determine whether or not we would like to offer an Extended License option.
Can I buy an Extended License for Items already purchased?
Yes, if there is an Extended License option available for an Item you have already purchased, you may go to that Item’s product page and buy an Extended License in the receipt area.
Can I create a mockup software solution using Threadosaurus clothing templates?
No. Distributing clothing mockups via software of any kind is forbidden even with an Extended License.
How are Free Goods and official Threadosaurus Bundles licensed?
All Items offered as Free Goods or included in official Threadosaurus Bundles are sold under the Standard digital download license. If you would like to buy an Extended License for any of these Items, visit the corresponding product page.
