Use of images

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.

Calm down folks - if I am

Calm down folks - if I am understanding this correctly - this is what the above means. If you do blog design / blog layouts for others and you use a PFD image - you need to purchase the royalty free license...unless -

If the person you are doing the blog design/blog layout for has purchased the image, you can use THEIR license on the image for THEIR blog design/layout. You are just the designer for them - they have "purchased the materials you are using" and therefore YOU do not need the royalty free license to create their design for them.

Otherwise, if the person you are doing the blog design/layout for does NOT own the image being used - since all PFD images are for PERSONAL USE ONLY - you need to purchase the royalty free license and you can use it on as many blog designs/layouts as you want, and you do NOT need to put the copyright information on the finished image.

You do not need the royalty free license to create signature tags, or Incredimail letters. You have made these items in accordance with the personal use terms and it is perfectly acceptable to share the FINISHED PRODUCT with others.

Make sense? Now calm down everyone LOL!!!!

I'm very confused, and I think you are creating trouble for yourself.
am I understanding correctly that if you ask a friend to make a blog for you and you purchase PFD art you can send the tube to them to use AS LONG as they put your license information on it? That smacks of tube sharing and is against terms of use. This is very confusing.

Sorry but this makes very

Sorry but this makes very little sense!
according to 1) person A can buy a tube, give it to person B who then makes them a header but uses person A's license number on it. Yet it is not allowed for us to share a tube we have bought. Thus 1) is either impossible, or automatically breaking your own TOU.
Also assuming money doesn't change hands...how is making a blog header for someone any different than making a tag for the same person??? Are we not allowed to do that any more either??? if that is the case then what is the point of anyone purchasing tubes from PFD...it effectively renders them almost useless!!!

I agree! Wondering if there's

I agree! Wondering if there's a different TOU for tagging? More confusion. I'm thinking this wasn't thought out completely or something is very wrong in translation. Looks like this is just another uprising taking place in the tagging community. *sigh*

I basically just make tags

I basically just make tags and sometimes maybe a stat to use. I have never made a blog page or nothing of the sort only cause I don't know the dimensions to do so and I do not have a blog ... however I dont see the difference in making a tag for a friend and putting your license number on it or a snaggable and putting your license number on it... both promote the art and the place you purchased the art. Someone sees what you have done and will go and purchase the tube themselves. I have purchased many a tube because of seeing something that struck my eye someone else has made with it. Think its cutting your nose off to spite your face there. ...

bonjour
je ne comprends pas bien la traduction de votre laius
moi j'achete vos créations et je fais des montages pour mon forum
de graphisme
je met toujours la licence
je fais aussi des tutoriels mais je ne mets pas les tubes dans le matériel
Maintenant je ne peux pas empêcher une de mes membres de faire un copier/coller
de mes créations et de les mettres sur son blog
donc cela devient très difficile
merci de me dire quoi faire

I don't really see the difference between making layouts for someone
OR make tags for someone to use

The way I am understanding

The way I am understanding it..is if YOU are the person who bought the tubes then it's ok for you to design your blog or a friends blog with your info on it...but if you received the tube as a gift and put that tube on your blog..not having bought the tube..then this is wrong..but the person who bought the tube and gave it to you..can design a blog layout for you.
