Q: I have items in a store or on my blog using your CU Freebies! Do I need to take them down or remove them from the store?
A: Of course not! I don’t expect designers to remove items that they may have used before I “changed the rules.” That would be completely unfair and unreasonable. And there were THOUSANDS of downloads of my CU freebies before I changed the rules. There is no way I can be assured a designer came back to my blog after she/he downloaded my freebies to even be aware of the new requirements after the download. I’m just saying, if you’ve read the new terms and are designing something new with old CU downloads – Use your conscience! I’m not going to hunt you down (probably – lol) and make you aware of the new terms. Believe it or not – I do have much better things to do!
Q: I don’t sell my designs in a store but just give them away as freebies. Do I need a Commercial Use License?
A: Technically, yes. Very few designers allow you to design freebies with Personal Use Only products. Am I going to hunt you down or call you out on it? No. Especially if you provide credit to me for the resources as required. That’s a wishy washy answer but honestly if you are giving things away out of the goodness of your heart for this fabulous digiscrap community I don’t want to discourage that! I know how expensive this hobby can be and will never break even with all of the programs, filters, hardware, etc. that I have purchased in the past two years to provide freebies. But I enjoy doing it!
Also, it hasn’t been asked but if you want to use my freebies for tutorials (free or paid) you do not need to purchase a Commercial Use license. I just ask that you direct your readers to my blog for the downloads.
Anyway, thanks also to Vaybs who explained how to allow anonymous comments on 4 shared. I do read all the comments on the blog, Facebook, 4 shared, and filesavr so don’t feel you must comment more than once! Now to the freebie! There are 24 glossy styles in halloween colors for Photoshop/PSE and also a pattern (.pat) set that is flat in the same patterns. And for those who do not use Photoshop or PSE there are 24 seamless image tiles in .png form that are 300 x 300 pix each so that you can import them into your own program.
