This is a call out to anyone (native?) with a better understanding
of the wording in (American) legal documents:
I’m trying to understand line 33 of the License Agreement found
when installing the Install Manager but am somewhat unfamiliar
with this dialect of the English language.
Here is the text as it looks right now:
| Physical images (3D-print, molded copy, CNC-routed copy, and the like) of Content or any art derived from the Content
| is permitted only by User’s purchase from DAZ, via the User’s online DAZ store account, permission to deliver User’s
| derived works (art), including necessary Content, to an entity that creates 3D-images in a physical medium.
| User may then deliver User’s art in file format to that 3rd-party to have physical images printed or created, up to
| the limitations set forth in the online DAZ Store as delineated on the purchase page associated with the
| permission product.
| These limitations govern (i) personal and/or commercial use| of the physical, printed images; and (ii) the quantity of
| 3-D printed images allowed.
My understanding of the first question is that :
Since I did purchase the original product from Daz, at the time
logged in to my own account I have the right to deliver my own
derived works (art) to anyone who can produce physical 3D
I am unable to decipher the meaning of the second sentence…
Does anyone have a link to ‘the limitations set forth in the online DAZ Store’ ?
Is there a product in the store called ‘Permission’?
Where can I find more information about the limitations
mentioned in the last sentence?
An older sample of the license agreement (found in the
14812_GenesisStarterEssentials_1.4_trx seem more clear
to my untrained eye:
| You may (i) access, use, copy and modify the 3-D Models stored on such computers at such single location in the
| creation and presentation of animations and renderings which may require runtime access to the 3-D Model(s),
| and (ii) incorporate two dimensional images (including two dimensional images that simulate motion of three
| dimensional objects) derived from the 3-D Model(s) in other works and publish, market, distribute, transfer,
| sell or sublicense such combined works; provided that you may not in any case: (a) separately publish, market,
| distribute, transfer, sell or sublicense any 3-D Model(s) or any part thereof; or (b) publish, market, distribute,
| transfer, sell or sublicense renderings, animations, software applications, data or any other product from
| which any original 3-D Model(s), or any part thereof, or any substantially similar version of the original 3-D
| Model(s) can be separately exported, extracted, or de-compiled into any re-distributable form or format. Subject
| to the foregoing limitations, and the rights, if any, of third parties in or to the objects represented by the 3-D
| Model(s), you may copy, distribute, and/or sell your animations and renderings derived from the 3-D Model(s).
| All other rights with respect to the 3-D Model(s) and their use are reserved to DAZ3D (and its licensors).
My understanding of the
above is that my legal use of the data inside the installer
was limited to creating animations and renderings. Solid
objects coming out of a 3D printer for example were not
allowed by this agreement. Right or wrong?
