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.

About Greeting cards - if you

About Greeting cards - if you just want to make a greeting card and, in the same way as with any tag, send it for your friends to admire and enjoy, it's just the PSP license, it's not commercial use.

Thank you for the

To Bits N Bobs - sorry about the confusion, we corrected the confusing moment, to boil it down, $7 is for digital commercial products, $20 for printed products in very small numbers, $150 license is for making some printed products or other products where the picture is used in large volumes.

To Maree
1. yes, and for making someone else's blog design you should also have the RF license ($7), no copyright info is required there
2. yes
3. yes

The reason for it is simple:

The reason for it is simple: as every store out there, we want to make sure every person using the image has purchased proper license for it, because this is artist's work and time. By doing that, we make sure only ONE person gets to use the tube for their personal purpose (blog design), because otherwise it would not be PSP license anymore.

Karee, taggers making tags

Karee, taggers making tags and surprising their friends have no reason to worry - they can just keep getting the PSP images as before and playing with them. This is not about tags, rather than design, which is a different thing by the manner in which tubes are used.

My Problem is that I make

My Problem is that I make often Blog Layouts for Friends without getting Money for it.
But if I can't do them anymore with my Tubes, then it sucks, I think.
Is it really like that, that I have to work with their Tubes, which my Friends bought and they send me one, and I can work with them for the Blog Layout?
That doesn't make sense for me, because why it's better if people gives me their Tubes for making their Layouts. I can also use my with my License... I can't understand, why it's better to get the tubes from them ...

The whole thing makes sense

The whole thing makes sense I'm just seeing it as a business point of view nothing more then that

Tari, the confusion isnt so

Tari, the confusion isnt so much about those selling blog layouts...that has already been done to death and every tube store previously agreed this was an outright no. We all know that. PFD allow that with purchase of the additional license, thats fair enough. The problem comes for those who are NOT selling, just making them for friends etc

I thought this make perfect

I thought this make perfect sense cause there are bloggers that make layouts and later on sell them. I read it from top to bottom. Everything made sense I don't see the confusion that everyone is having.
