Royalty Free (RF)

Images are sold/licensed for a one-time fee. The Licensee’s use is limited by the size of the file purchased/licensed from and by the license terms set forth in this Agreement. All images are sold/licensed on a non-exclusive basis for an indefinite period of time.

All Files on the Site may be downloaded under the Standard and/or Extended and/or Editorial Use license. Follow these rules to choose the appropriate license:

b. If the File is used to create an item for Resale or for Free Distribution:

i. if the File plays a minor role in the item, the Standard License is appropriate;

ii. if the File plays a major role in the item, the Extended License is appropriate.

Item for Resale: An item that will be distributed to raise commercial revenue (e.g., resale of web templates, T-shirts, books, calendars, etc.). An item created at the request of a client is not considered an Item for Resale. However, if a client distributes or intends to distribute such an item to raise commercial revenue, it is considered an Item for Resale. While working on a project for a client, take into account the final use of the item before downloading a File to determine the appropriate license to purchase.

Item for Free Distribution: An item that will be distributed to a wide audience without raising any commercial revenue (e.g., free web templates, postcards, flyers, etc.).

The role a File plays in an item is determined by the value the File adds to the item and how much the File influences a customer’s decision to choose this particular item among similar items.

a. A major role: A File is considered to play a major role in an item if the File is a primary, defining, or important part of the item, increases the intrinsic value of the item, or influences a customer’s preference for this particular item.

b. A minor role: A File is considered to play a minor role in an item if the File is an incidental part of the item, does not add significant value to the item and does not influence a customer’s preference for this item.
