I have recently transferred over from Dollar Photo Shop. I use realistic photos in products that I sell on an online site for teachers. After reading your TOUs, I am confused as to what I am allowed to do with photos from your site. As I read it, as long as I do not sell 500,000 units, I do not need an additional license? Or do I need to purchase an Extended License? There are many of us in various groups that REALLY would appreciate a straightforward, CLEAR answer to this matter, as it affects our business
If you are selling the image or anything where the images are the main element of the product you need an extended License. If you are using as a part of a product where the image isn't a main reason for buying it - such as a book cover which is good for up to 500,000 copies. In the case of a book cover people don't generally by the book because they want the cover.
That still does not clarify anything for me. Maybe if I am more specific in what I use the photos for...I create non-fiction read alouds for teachers to use with their students. The photos are part of the product, but not the only part. I include text and sometimes graphs or charts. Are the photos still considered the main element in that case?
Also, when I transferred my plan from DPC, I did so under the understanding that I would be under the same TOU I agreed upon for the next year. I would like clarification of that as well.
