Examples

The following examples, on how to use or not to use Licensed Material purchased under the Extended License, are based on frequently asked questions from other users.

The Licensed material can be resold as part of mass distributed digital products

When you buy an icon, you gain the rights to use it in commercial and non-commercial projects. You can use it for your own or your client's website, app, presentation etc. The Extended license grants you the rights to resell the icons as a part of your product. However, selling the icons individually or as sets is not allowed. The icons must be sold as a part of your own product. The icons cannot be the product itself.

You are, for example, free to use the icons in a SaaS analytics dashboard product you sell to customers. You can use the icons e.g. in a dashboard Bootstrap UI theme that you sell on a theme marketplace. The Extended license gives you the rights to resell the icons as part of digital products like:

  • Themes
  • UI-kits
  • Software frameworks
  • In-app purchase icon packs

The  icons can be used on merchandise for sale

Using the icons on T-shirts and other types of physical products is fine, and under the Extended license reselling these products is permitted. You can print an icon on a T-shirt for yourself, a client or for internal use in your company. You are allowed to print the icons on a shirt and then resell the shirt as a product.

The icons cannot be used as logos

In many ways icons are like logos. The artwork is simple and elegant, and often has a very clear and easy to understand meaning. Neither the Extended license nor the Basic license permit the icons to be used as logos. Your logo has to be unique, otherwise it cannot be trademarked. Also, if you try to trademark a logo that is an icon, the designer of the icon can have a conflicting copyright ownership. We therefore do not allow the usage of the Licensed material as logos.
