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.

Totally agree with this! It mentions blogs, but doesn't say a thing about us tag makers. I am not buying $7 tubes for that, so I wouldn't come back, either!!

Ok I am a little confused as to the Royalty free licences.

All 3 contradict the terms you are stating above.
In order to sell any blog designs for monetry gain the licence actually costs $150.

Extended licence states
'Suitable for commercial use of the picture and its alteration, for creating both digital and printed products, '

Commercial use means you can use said product to sell IE make money and yet your terms go on to state
'except for the purpose of (re)selling the picture itself of products created with it.'

Forgive me if I am reading these terms wrong somehow but they all contradict each other and are extremely confusing.

May I ask what the limitations are on commercial usage ?
Below reads that for $7 the tube can be used for anything commercially.
Does this include Greeting Cards ?

so what
1. your saying is if you design blog/s that you must not use tube with your license on it for some one else blog..
2. To use PFD tubes in blog the person/s who own the blog must use tube/s they have purchased using their own license No, on it.
3. If Blog designer wants to use her own tubes for someone else's blog (that they have not purchased) she/he must then purchase the RF license to do so.

Am I reading this correctly

How does this new rule affect

Submitted by Karen (not verified) on Fri, 01/20/2012 - 23:00.

How does this new rule affect those that own forums? We hold contests on a regular basis for members and they make banners -- its displayed in what you would consider to be the same fashion as a blog header -- does that mean we can't use PFD artists in our headers? I'm sorry but this is just too confusing and in my opinion TOTALLY unnecessary.

I think this is silly. I totally stand behind the not sharing the tube part because I would never do that. The tubes I buy are mine and for my use only OR I use them to make tags for others WITH a name or wording on....BUT the rest that was said about blog layouts and stuff is ridiculous! A layout header is practically the same as a tag, only it's the blog name instead of a name, in my honest opinion.
I don't make blog layouts yet but if I did, I would never spend $7 on a tube, just to be able to make a blog header. If this is the way it's going to be with PFD tubes from now on, I won't buy anything there anymore.

I think this is ridiculous, WHEN blog designs are done with tubes NO MONEY is exchanged. that is the thing and why some do blog layouts for FREE because people want pretty tubes on them NOT EVERYONE knows how to do a blog lay out and I think as long as no money is exchanged it is no different than joe schmo making a tag for me to use. PFD is really shooting themself in the foot with this one because this will make sales drop I refuse to pay 7.00 for a tube that I use for personal use. I do not get paid to make tags and it is a hobby but with rules like this its almost time to say screw it...

This needs clarification for those of us who only make tags as gifts for our friends!

I buy PFD images to make signature tags for myself and to give as gifts for friends.
I make a tag blank and then I add a name to my blank for each friend for whom I want to make a tag. Is that still okay?

If that's NOT still okay, I will not be buying any more PFD images.

I really shouldn't have

Submitted by Contee (not verified) on Fri, 01/20/2012 - 19:52.

I really shouldn't have gotten into all this. I'm not a blog designer so it really has nothing to do with me. It just really got to me that using a tube that you paid to use for whatever, is being mandated like this. I'll hush now and check back later for a response from PFD also.
