Licence Terms

Clear guidelines on what's not allowed

Some common-sense limitations do apply, as set out below:

  • You can't re-sell, or re-distribute items;
  • You can't use items in on-demand services;
  • You generally can't use items as the basis for merchandising. For example, printing a logo from Morovicracks straight onto a T-shirt is not allowed.
  • You can't use music items in a Broadcast presentation.

Main Rules  

For each digital work (called an “Item”) you download or Register under your Morovicracks subscription, you are granted a license to use the Item on a non-exclusive, commercial, worldwide and revocable basis, for one Single Use per Registration. What is a Single Use, and the license time periods for different item types, are explained next.

  1. The Single Use license and Registration approach is crucial to allow us to fairly allocate subscription earnings among the authors who make their Items available on Morovicracks.
  2. For fonts and add-ons, a Single Use is the installation of the Item on your device. The license starts when you Register the installation, and you can then use the font or add-on to create as many projects as you like, for as long as your Morovicracks subscription remains active. There are more licensing details for fonts and add-ons below.

For Items other than fonts and add-ons, a Single Use is the use of the Item to create an End Product (requiring an application of skill and effort) in one of the following ways:

  1. For an Item that is a template, the End Product is a customized implementation of the Item.
  2. For an Item that is an audio item, the End Product is a sync of the music with an audio-visual or audio-only work that incorporates the Item as well as other things, so that it is larger in scope and different in nature than the Item.
  3. For other types of Items, an End Product is a work that incorporates the Item as well as other things, so that it is larger in scope and different in nature than the Item.

The license starts when you Register your use of the item and the license is only valid if you complete the End Product while your subscription is active. Then the license continues for the life of the End Product (even if your subscription ends).

For all items you can have more than one Single Use, but you simply need to Register each use of the item.
  1. Each license includes the right to utilize the Item through communication to the public (performance), broadcast, display, distribution, and reproduction, but only as a part of the End Product which you have created with the Item.

More details about what you can do with an Item that’s not a font or add-on

This section covers details for Items other than fonts or add-ons.
  1. You can use an Item to create an End Product for yourself or for a client. If you use an Item to create an End Product for a client, then you can transfer the End Product to your client as long as you have followed the requirements in clause 3 and your subscription remains active. The right to use that Item as part of the End Product is transferred to your client with the End Product. If you want to use the Item again, Register it for a different Single Use.
  2. If you transfer an End Product to a client, you do so by sublicensing these license rights in any Item within that End Product. The sublicense must only be granted on condition that use of the Item is limited to that use which is necessary in order to use the End Product, so the Item must not be extracted, reproduced or used in any other way (the Limited Sublicense). You must inform your client of this condition.
  3. You can make any number of copies of the End Product created using an Item. You can distribute the End Product through multiple media.  
  4. You can modify or manipulate an Item, or combine the Item with other works, to suit your End Product. The resulting works created using the Item are subject to the terms of this license. You can do the things allowed in this clause as long as the End Product you then create using an Item is one that’s permitted.  
  5. If an Item contains multiple assets you can make more than one End Product with that Item but you must first Register the Item for each new project.
For example, if an Item contains a set of icons and you use more than one of these in a single End Product, you need only register the Item once. If you make five End Products using icons from the set then you first need to register the set five times: once for each End Product.

Things you can't do with an Item

  1. You can’t use an Item to create an End Product after your subscription ends. If you’ve installed an Item (such as a font or add-on) on your device, you need to uninstall the Item once your subscription ends.
  2. You can’t redistribute the Item as stock, in a tool or template, or with source files. You can’t do this with an Item either on its own or bundled with other items, and even if you modify the Item. You can’t redistribute or make available the Item as-is or with superficial modifications. These things are not allowed even if the redistribution is for free.

  3. You can’t use an Item in any application allowing an end user to customize a digital or physical product to their specific needs, such as an “on demand”, “made to order” or “build it yourself” application.

  4. You can’t use an Item for merchandising, which means an End Product created using that Item where the primary value of the product lies in the Item itself, including:

    1. an End Product where the Item serves as its core component, and where without the incorporation of the Item it would not fundamentally differ from any other product of similar nature and use; and/or

    2. an End Product where the incorporation of the Item is what makes the product fundamentally unique and valuable, and is the main driving factor for the sale of the End Product.

    For clarity, End Products where skill and effort have been applied to incorporate the Item into a larger design (such as with text and other graphics/images) or used as product packaging are not considered merchandising and are allowed.

    For example you can’t print an image out as a poster and sell copies of that poster, as the primary value of the poster is from the image itself. However, you can print an image as a book cover and sell copies of that book, as the primary value of the book is from the writing/contents of the book and not the image itself.
  5. You must not permit an end user to extract an Item and use it separately from the End Product created using that Item.

  6. You can’t claim trademark or service mark rights over an Item within the End Product created using that Item.

License terms for fonts and add-ons

For a font or add-on, these conditions apply:

  1. The font or add-on can only ever be used by you, the original purchaser. This means that you cannot transfer the the font or add-on to someone else, or allow it to be used by someone else, even within the same company.

  2. Licensee is entitled to install the font or add-on on up to two computers per subscription seat at one time. Installation and use of the font or add-on can only take place while your Morovicracks subscription is active.

  3. Except as set out in paragraph, you can’t redistribute the font or add-on (this includes no public distribution, display or performance). You also can’t modify or make derivatives of the font or add-on.

  4. Except as set out in paragraph, you can’t incorporate or distribute the font or add-on within an End Product. But you may link the users of the End Product to where they can directly license the font or add-on.

  5. You can incorporate a web-enabled font as part of an End Product, but your End Product must not encourage or facilitate users to extract the font or create new text using it.

  6. Fonts and add-ons fall under the category of “Tools”. If further Tools are added to Morovicracks, specific license terms may be added in respect of those Tools, similar to the terms which currently apply to fonts and add-ons.

Tool is an installable software extension or utility designed to perform specific tasks in order to create other works. Tools include fonts, 3D and video software scripts, 3D and video software plug-ins, and graphics software add-ons.
