Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Not for profit work - Licensing?

Hi everyone,

I've been looking at past questions about licensing and read the licensing faq, yet still wanted to make absolutely sure.

I've been hired by a media production company to develop a virtual fly-through for a facility. The facility in question is for the government and they want to introduce people to it through setting up booths and having people look at it. No admission is charged at the booth.

Now the government is paying the media company and they are paying me as a freelancer to develop the app. Again, the end product will yield no monetary rewards.

Since there are so many parties involved, I wanted to ask if such a project is due for royalties and if so, which party needs to pay them.

I believe to have found the answer in the faq here: Consulting and work-for-hire services using the engine. This applies to architects using the engine to create visualizations as well as consultants receiving a development fee.

However I would appreciate clarification.

Thank you in advance.

You are correct in that since you are being paid as a for-hire contractor would exempt the product from royalty payments. If the company is not selling the product or monetizing it in any way, then there are no profits for a royalty to be applied to.

If the product was interactive and to be sold to individuals, then royalties would be owed on the profits. Please let me know if this has clarified your questions. I am here to help.
