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.

This makes no sense at

This makes no sense at all.
We buy tubes to make tags, blog layouts, wallpapers and everything else in PSP.
We do this to make these items for or friends to use as e-mail and forum signatures mostly. So if the above is the TOU for PFD images.. we are buying tubes to only make tags and such for ourselves? Many in the PSP community are collectors of tags not taggers themselves. No point in buying a tube for this purpose at all! In 10 years of being in the PSP community I have never heard of such a thing! The last of part b) above really has me confused ..."you do not have to indicate any copyrights". WHAT??? No indication of copyrights?? Why "buy" the tube? I'm stunned!

And I need to know: How is it

And I need to know: How is it with creating Stuff like Wallpapers, which someone can download? Is it then also, that we have to buy a Royalty Free License.
If it is like that, then PDF is the only one, who does stuff like this and I don't will use it anymore for Wallpapers, Blog Layouts and Stuff.

Yeah, I'm sorry but I don't

Yeah, I'm sorry but I don't think I fully understand this either...
Even if no profit/gain is made from making blog layouts for others, we still cannot use PFD tubes with the regular license?

So am I understanding this

So am I understanding this right we as PSP users can not Make someones blog layout with our own tubes and someone else use it? Like if a friend does a blog layout for me and it has a PFD tube on it I am not allowed to have it on my blog with their license even though it states Layout made by so and so and has their license and information? I want to make sure I am understanding this completely.
