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"

Licensing of marketing Software


a company contacted us to develop a marketing strategy.

We offered to make a software, which will be used in official showrooms via the HTC Vive to display and market the product in the HMD.

Do we have to pay the 5% royalty for products sold or for the cost of development?

Thank you very much!

It sounds like you are talking about custom work-for-hire for a single client, where that work is directed by the client - is that correct? And the result of the work would not be sold, but it would be used to market another product?

We are an agency so the work is directed by us but discussed with the client. The work (The VR-Product) would be used to market another product

Custom work-for-hire fees are royalty free under the EULA. And since the product itself would not be sold, there is no other product revenue to be subject to a royalty.
