Use of images

(Royalty Free license)

Making PSP tags allowed, for yourself and your friends allowed, for yourself and your friends
Making animated banners allowed, for yourself and your friends allowed, for yourself and your friends
Website design allowed, for yourself and your friends who purchased that picture* allowed, for yourself and third parties, no need to indicate copyright information, unlimited number of designs
Sale of animated banners not allowed allowed, no need to indicate copyright information, unlimited number
Sale of website design not allowed allowed, no need to indicate copyright information on the design, unlimited number **
Passing picture to a third party  not allowed not allowed
Re-selling picture not allowed not allowed
Making Timeline covers for Facebook  allowed, for yourself and your friends allowed, for yourself and other people, no need to indicate copyright information, unlimited number of cover designs

*You may help your friend make a design. However, the design must contain proper copyrights, including the license information of the person that bought the picture and will be using that design.

**When passed to a third party, the character much be "glued" to the background.


PSP license offered by PFD provides for non-commercial use of pictures for PERSONAL purpose. PASSING the image to third parties in any way is prohibited. It applies to those making BLOG DESIGNS using PFD tubes and selling or gifting them to OTHER PEOPLE later. This is possible to do only in the following two cases: 

1) The recipient of the design purchased that picture and you made the design, so they use the design indicating their license number with PFD.
 
2) You buy a picture under a different type of license - Royalty free. It's available at the store that offers pictures for commercial use costing $7 and allows using it unlimited number of times when making designs and selling or gifting them to third parties, without indicating copyright information on those designs. It's right here http://rfillustrations.com/. The only condition here is that the character must be "glued" to the background.
 
So, if YOU buy that tube and use it for YOUR blog, indicating YOUR license and other information, it's fine. If you purchase a tube and then someone else uses it for their blog and YOUR copyrights are there, that's not right. In this situation, there are two options 
 
a) blog owner is the buyer of the tube and that blog owner's information is on the tube (you can ask a friend to design something for your blog with it, but two conditions above should be observed)
 
b) you buy $7 Royalty-Free license and can use that tube for making blog designs to any number of your friends, and you do not have to indicate any copyrights.

Also, when you have a concern

Also, when you have a concern of this kind, you should really contact us directly by our e-mail. Stating it here and remaining anonymous does not seem constructive, unless it's just for the sake of stating it for everyone to hear.

We will look into it if you

We will look into it if you provide details on what you think makes our TOU worse than those of any other website with same products. So far our TOU are the most liberal of all and the way we work is the most convenient for users and artists alike, which explains highest level of sales we have among PSP tube stores and the fact we are standing with both our feet on the ground, safe and solid, thank you for your concern :).

You have lost my business as your TOU's are very confusing and very much unlike most of the other stores that are out there. Even the independent artists don't have such ridiculous TOU's. You just blew your foot off. How does it feel to stand on one leg and try to balance it all??

Thank you for your reply. It

Thank you for your reply. It is greatly appreciated.
Even though I do have one of the Royalty Free Images, I feel more comfortable with giving the Artists credit, so I'll still add the copyright mark on my creations with it. ;)

Thank you again. =)

Dear anonymous, there is no

Dear anonymous, there is no 'safe side' here, you are completely safe as long as you use a royalty-free image according to proper license terms, and those terms say you do not need to add any copyright information. You do not need to add that information for any of the royalty-free images, but of course you can if you want to :)

But if we do have the image

But if we do have the image with a Royalty Free License, to be on the 'safe side', can we still add copyrights on the banner & use our PFD license? I like the idea of the Royalty Free License & the uses for it, BUT at the same time, I would still prefer to give credit to the artists & also have some kind of license on it... I hope this question makes sense.

Muchas gracias por la

Hola, quería que me aclarasen una duda que tengo:
Tengo un foro que en el que hacemos firmas y las regalamos. Acabo de leer que no hay problema con eso, pero nuestro foro, aunque es gratuito, pertenece a Foroactivo, que contiene publicidad. Nosotros no recibimos ningún ingreso económico de eso, pero me gustaría saber si puedo usar los tubes, con su correspondiente licencia, en la cabecera del foro. También si puedo usarlos en la cabecera del blog que tenemos en Blogspot.
Gracias de antemano.

Gracias por
