Answers: Frequently Asked Questions

What does royalty free mean?

Royalty free means you just need to pay for rights to use the item once per end product. You don't need to pay additional or ongoing fees for each person who sees or uses it.

What do you mean by item and end product?

The item is what you purchase on our website. The end product is what you build with that item.

Am I allowed to modify the item that I purchased?

Yes. You can customize our items to fit the needs of your end product.

What does non-exclusive mean?

Non-exclusive means that you are not the only person with access to the item. Others will also be licensing and using the same item.

What are the main differences between the Standard License and the Extended License?

In simple terms, the main difference is that under the Standard License, your end product (incorporating the item you've licensed) is distributed for free, whereas under the Extended License your end product may be sold.

Which license do I need for an end product that is only accessible to paying users?

If the end users need to pay to see the end product, you need an Extended License. There can be more than one end user as long as there is only one end product.
For example: Website that requires money before you can access the content

I am planning to use the item in a product that I will sell. Which license do I need?

If the item is part of a product for sale, you need the Extended License.
For example: Weather-icons-video in your weather forecast template for sale

Which license do I need for an end product that is freely accessible or freely distributed to users?

As long as the end users can freely access the end product, the Standard License is fine. There can be more than one end-user (the person who uses the end product, such as the end consumer) as long as there is only one, unique end product.
For example: Logo for your showreel that you freely give out or a YouTube video that's free to view

I am a commercial entity or run a business. Do I always need an Extended License?

No, just using the item in a commercial setting doesn't necessarily mean you need an Extended License. You need an Extended License if the end product is sold to end users. If the end product is free, even if you are a commercial enterprise, you only need a Standard License.
For example: Even though you own a commercial website, and our product is used as a logo opener or a demo-video and users can access the channel itself without having to pay, a Standard License is sufficient.

Do I need an Extended License to use an item in the packaging for a physical end product that I'm selling? What about for advertising for an end product that I'm selling?

No, the Standard License is fine. You only need the Extended License if the item is actually part of the product itself.

Which license do I need to use an item in a commercial?

You only need a Standard License where the end product is an advertisement, as the audience does not have to pay to view it. It doesn't matter if the advertisement is for things that are being sold.
For example: An After Effects template used to produce a TV commercial would only need the Standard License

Which license do I need to use an item in a film or broadcast TV (excluding ads)?

If the end product is a broadcast TV show or a movie, you need the Extended License.
For example: Even using an After Effects template on a TV show on a free-to-air channel requires an Extended License, because the end product is the show and that is being sold to the network.

Can I re-distribute an item? What about under an Extended License?

No. You can't license items and then make them available to others 'as-is' (that is, as a stand-alone item or as stock), regardless of which license you purchase.
For example: You can't buy a broadcast template and distribute it as a template, source files and all.

If I purchase an Extended License, do I get a multi-use license?

All After Effects templates (and included parts) with Extended License is still limited to a single end product, but you can re-sell that product. However, you can use the Video Packs with Extended License as multi-use option.

Do I need a separate license each time I use an item in a series?

No. You only need to purchase the item once per series.

My end product will be distributed via multiple mediums. Do I need one license for each medium?

No. As long as it's all the same end product, you can distribute it via different mediums without having to purchase new licenses.
For example: With a single license, you could play your commercial on website and on TV.

I'm a freelancer/agency. Can I use the item for an end product I'm doing for a client?

Yes. You're essentially buying the file on your client's behalf. Whether a Standard or Extended License is needed will depend on your client's use of the end product. With both the Standard and Extended License you are allowed to charge your client for creating the End Product. Once you transfer the end product to the client, be sure to link your client to our licenses and delete the item itself from your computer.
