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.
Please note that there may be some limits placed on uses under the different license types available on the marketplaces, such as our Photo and Music Licenses.
What are the main differences between the Regular License and the Extended License?
In simple terms, the main difference is that under the Regular 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. Of course, if it was all that simple, we’d have a one sentence license, so please do read the licenses and the rest of these FAQs for more details!
If you’re a freelancer, you are allowed to create an end product for a client using the Regular License and charge them for your services.
What is a single application?
A single application means one unique end product (which can be copied and made available to end users of that product). The end product depends on the nature of the item – for an item like a logo template, the end product is the final, unique logo, which can be used in unlimited ways. The next few FAQs explain some situations where we consider allowed variations or a series of related uses to be a single application.
Where multi-use is an available option, the single application FAQs here do not apply.
