Important Notice: License Update

Related: eula, license
The Renderosity Standard License has been updated. The new EULA basically has the same restrictions and allowances; however, the update should be more clear and easy to understand, with wording to clarify the buyer’s copyrights of newly created work and game usage. Commercial use of products is allowed, just not re-distribution, and our license wording has been updated to help people understand the differences. There is more specific terminology to help ensure that all vendors’ copyrights are properly protected.

This license more clearly states that changing the files to another file type (like Second Life or other virtual worlds) and then selling them or giving them away is not allowed. Please note that buyers can use the files for their “personal” use on virtual worlds where the files are not shared, but Renderosity products may NOT be used on Second Life due to their license that gives them full rights on any items uploaded there.

The updated Standard License is now for ALL products, regardless of when they were purchased. Any works made before 04/24/2014 with the previous license are grandfathered in. We ask that all buyers please thoroughly read the updated Standard End User License Agreement (EULA) by clicking here.

Our Standard License no longer allows Renderosity Marketplace models to be used in real-time 3D gaming engines and virtual worlds, because the models are able to be extracted. Buyers interested in such uses will need to inquire about an Extended License on the specific product(s) they would like to use. The updated Standard License (like the original) still allows for use in games when the files are not being re-distributed in any way.

A new Extended License has been created for the specific products where the vendors have authorized it to be sold with an Extended License. You can read the Extended License here. Please keep in mind that not all products will have an option for an Extended License. This is the vendors' choice. To inquire about or obtain an Extended License, please email license@renderosity.com.

Please note that vendors selling “Merchant Resources” are required to state any of the additional allowances (or restrictions) within their individual read-me files, but only for topics that are different than or not specifically covered in our license for resources. Buyers please remember to read the readme that is available online before purchasing products and resources cannot be made from other resources.
