RPG Maker MV Plugins Commercial Use License

1. OVERVIEW





This license outlines the conditions for using my RPG Maker MV plugins on the RPG Maker Times blog for inclusion in commercial projects.

This applies to all plugins in the site’s RMMV Plugins section.

If you’re unclear as to which license to use, consider the following:

  • If you’re using the plugins in a free or freely distributed game, then the Non-Commercial Use License applies.
  • If you’re using the plugins in games that can be purchased or from which you are (or intending on) making money, the Commercial Use License applies.

2. COMMERCIAL TERMS OF USE

By using the plugins in your projects, you agree to the terms of this license for use in your projects.

All plugins are free to use in projects under the Creative Commons Attribution-NoDerivatives 4.0 International License (CC BY-ND 4.0).

This means that the plugins may be used in commercial projects, provided that full credit (Section 4) is given and you have purchased a license for use in commercial projects (Section 3).

In projects submitted to competitions where a monetary prize is awarded, the Commercial Use License only applies upon winning. Subsequently, if the project remains playable and/or downloadable for free (as part of the competition or separately and no monetary prize is collected) then no license is required.

3. LICENSE FEES

A license fee is required to grant a non-exclusive rights for the plugins to be used in commercial projects.

3.1 General License
The General Use License grants the use of the selected plugin in a single commercial game. To use it in subsequent projects intended for commercial purposes, another license fee is required (Section 3.3 Fees).

3.2 Lifetime Use License
The Lifetime Use License grants users the non-exclusive rights to use plugins in any commercial game without the need for purchasing additional licenses. This applies to all plugins. Only one Lifetime Use License needs to be purchased.

3.3 Fees
License fees depends on which plugin is used, but anything above the amount will be greatly appreciated. Donations above the required fee will be reinvested into the site to cover additional server costs and site upgrades.

3.4 Rights of Use
Purchasing licenses does not permit redistribution of the plugins, except in the projects for which they will be used.

Modifications or adaptations of the plugins are allowed, however, for compatibility with other plugins and/or the project itself, and not for any other purposes.

Plugins may not otherwise be modified or adapted, redistributed, hosted on sites other than RPG Maker Times, sold, or claimed as your own.

4. CREDITS & COPYRIGHTS

All plugins are – and remain – coprighted to Companion Wulf/RPG Maker Times.

Credit to either "Companion Wulf" or "RPG Maker Times" is required. This must be placed on the project’s web site and/or included documentation accompanying the project.

Optionally, credits can be placed somewhere in the project, notably the end credits.
