DJ Inkers Commercial License Agreement for: One (1) user and one (1) website, blog or selling venue

Because you have purchased a commercial license, the license terms contained in our download folders & CD's are superseded by this commercial agreement.

By purchasing this license you agree: All D.J. Inkers images & fonts shall remain the property of D.J. Inkers, LLC., and are protected by United States copyright law.

This license is to allow a single individual purchaser (meaning, the individual who actually bought the DJ Inkers products) to create derivative designs that they will personally sell or profit from as a result of their design work. (A derivative work is a creation that includes basic copyrighted aspects of a previously created work, but is a recasting, transformation or adaptation of that original work and includes new copyrightable elements.)

This DJ Inker’s commercial license is effective for the lifetime of the original purchaser. This license is non-transferable (and covers only the original purchaser). All derivative projects created and posted for sale by that purchaser are covered under this license. This license extends to the purchaser's computer(s) only.

Please be honest. If you have more than one website and /or venue that you sell your projects from, or additional designers who work for you on the same selling venue, please contact us for information on our new commercial license add-ons.

This is NOT a license to re-distribute/sell DJ Inkers graphics or fonts in their original format. In this commercial license, DJ Inkers graphics and fonts are to be considered design tools/components (rather than a final product). DJ Inkers graphics and fonts (in their original form) are not to be shared, loaned, rented, resold, distributed, transferred, or posted on the internet, a public album, network or web page. You must always create a new project using our designs for this license to apply.

This DJ Inker’s commercial license is valid for 1 website, blog or selling venue (ie. boutique). The items you are posting can only be sold through a site or venue that sells to the end-user. If you wish to sell projects on more than one site or venue, you must purchase a license add-on for each additional site that you sell from. Please contact us for more info.
