License FAQ

Can I use purchased assets in more than one project?

For Free and Standard License purchases you may use the assets in multiple projects as long as those projects fall under the acceptable uses of the license you purchased.  For extended licenses, the assets may be used in multiple projects provided the TOTAL sales of any physical or digital products do not exceed 10,000 copies and that the end products all conform to the specific terms of our Extended License allowed uses.

Can I use purchased assets in my mobile app, web app or game?

If you have purchased a Standard or Extended License you may use the assets in a mobile app, web app or game provided that the user base is under 250,000 users for Standard Licenses and under 1 million users for Extended Licenses AND provided that the app or game does not allow end-users to access the 9 Lives Illustration assets or allow users to create other end products with 9 Lives Illustration assets.

Can purchased assets be used by multiple parties within the same business or organization?

Free and Standard Licenses do not allow for multi-seat use, however with the Extended License you may use the assets for up to 5 users or employees within the same business or organization, provided all of the other terms and limits of the Extended license are met.

Can I use purchased assets in physical or digital products for sale?

Free and Standard Licenses do not allow for end products for sale.  The Extended License allows for the sale of up to 10,000 TOTAL sales of either digital or physical products provided the assets purchased from 9 Lives Illustrations are not the main value of the end product and have been sufficiently altered and/or added to in the design process and that all other terms and limits of the Extended License are met.
