You want to purchase a royalty-free license for one of the 3D Printable STL files (the "3D assets") available on the CADSPARC Website, and are wondering what you can do with it? Please read the following tips prepared for you.
What is the difference between the editorial and standard license?
Certain 3D assets are available under only an "editorial" license, which has certain restrictions. In particular, those assets (a) cannot be used for any commercial or promotional use; (b) cannot be used to suggest sponsorship, affiliation, or association with any person, brand, or company; and (c) can be used in only works that comment on or criticize the subject matter of the assets or newsworthy or public interest events associated with them (e.g., news articles, critical reviews, documentaries, etc.). You may edit an asset only if its editorial quality is not altered.
A standard license does not have all of the restrictions that apply to an editorial license, but there are some restrictions. In both cases, others can do the same, as none of the licenses on the CADSPARC Website are exclusive.
What is forbidden?
You may not use the 3D asset in a way that allows others to use or access the 3D asset as a stand-alone file (for instance, no sub-license or sale by you to others is allowed). For similar reasons, you may not distribute the 3D asset incorporated in a derivative work if the derivative work is too similar to the 3D asset (for instance, you may not print a 3D asset or a slightly modified version of it and sell it).
You may not use the 3D asset in a way that violates anyone’s intellectual property rights (e.g., copyrights, trademarks, patents, or rights of publicity), nor may you make a pornographic, defamatory or otherwise unlawful use. Similarly, you may not use the 3D asset for the direct or indirect promotion of alcoholic beverages, tobacco, gambling, weapons or explosives.
And you may not claim you are the creator or copyright holder of a 3D asset you purchased.
