February 27, 2013 – DaisyTrail, the online social crafting network, has announced today that customers now have commercial rights when using content from any DaisyTrail or CraftArtist branded digikits.* The revised End User License Agreement (EULA) will give customers more flexibility when making and selling handmade crafts, design work or marketing materials.
“The commercial use of graphics is often a hot topic for anyone in the design and craft industries,” says Ashley Hewson, Managing Director at DaisyTrail. “Over the years at DaisyTrail we have tried to keep up with industry trends to make sure we are offering our customers what they want. As a result, I’m pleased to say that we have now decided to offer extended commercial rights when using our digikits. As one of the first companies in this industry to offer this for no extra cost, we are hoping to pave the way for other companies to follow suit.”
This is great news for design professionals or people who want to turn their hobby into a business. For example, customers can use graphics included in DaisyTrail digikits to create things like wedding stationery, T-shirts, greeting cards, or party crafts for resale. It’s also great for crafters who wish to sell an unlimited number of their projects at craft fairs or similar events. Plus businesses and self-employed professionals can create their own promotional materials, such as leaflets, web banners and brochures.
The new terms mean that customers may incorporate any of the digikit content into original work to publish, display, distribute and commercially use in any media. It also allows customers to get their designs professionally printed and mass produced if they wish to.
As with all license agreements, DaisyTrail’s EULA contains other terms so it is advisable to read the full agreement before using the kits in a commercial capacity. Alternatively, customers can check out the DaisyTrail blog for common FAQs or contact the DaisyTrail support team for advice on anything they are not clear about.
* The revised license does not apply to free DaisyTrail kits and any kits created by third party designers. These are still covered by the company’s Angel Policy, which allows limited commercial use. Please see the EULA for more information.
