General FAQ


What are the differences between Personal and Commercial licenses?

The main difference is that the Personal license allows you to use the item you have bought in one End Product, or for one client, which can not be sold afterwards, no matter the level of modifications.

On the other hand, buying a Commercial license, allows you to use the the purchased item in multiple End products which and also be sold afterwards.


What is considered a "End Product" ?

An End Product must be significantly different than the original Item and require a considerable time, effort, and skill to produce. End Products must not be used or sold in a way that is directly competitive with the original Item you purchased. End Products must not redistribute the original Item to any third parties in a manner that allows for the extraction of the original Item.


How are the prices decided?

Prices are exclusively set by authors.
