Royalty-free products may be used in two ways; 1) Regular and 2) Extended way. Regular License allows use of the item in one single eBook which end users are not charged to access or use. You can do this directly or, if you’re a freelancer, you can create the eBook for one client to distribute free to its end users. Otherwise, extended License allows use of the item in one single eBook and other end products such as website, and other uses there is a limit of 250,000 copies across all products, which you or one client may sell to end users (charge end users to access or use the end product). Distribution of source files is not permitted. You can charge your client to produce the single end product. Distribution of source files is not permitted.
In other words, there are no license fees except the initial fee and no other royalties to be paid except those included in initial cost. You don’t have to pay any additional royalties for successive uses of a royalty-free product. However, as with all Orange Digit Inc. licenses, the rights granted are non-transferable and are personal to you. This means that if you license a royalty-free product to be used in a derivative work by your client or any other person, they may not use the licensed product separately from the derivative work. The Royalty-Free license is granted ONLY for the non-watermarked image you buy using the Download button; all the other versions (small watermarked and non-watermarked thumbnails which are visible on the public site) are entirely copyrighted.
