So we have a lot of things to discuss...
1) CCD Contract
2) Royalty Free
3) Commercialization Guide
I hope that this is where we can ask, discuss, complain about everything dealing with these topics. If you have questions, concerns or kudos, then place them here so that everyone of us can benefit and understand clearly- together.
Let's start with the new CCD Contract Agreement.
You can view the entire document here:
The contract is similar to the original except in a few areas, which I will briefly discuss in this forum, but of course if you have any questions, post them here so that everyone can benefit from this discussion.
The new CCD Contract will be effective on May 22, 2009. All content on the content store will become royalty free. If you do not want your content to be made royalty free, you must contact Reallusion by May 22, 2009 to request your content to be removed from all Reallusion store fronts.
To have your content removed:
Here is a short description of what royalty free is:
"More than quality and selection, royalty-free means once you buy content from Reallusion, you have the right to display that content within any number of commercial or personal projects and pay nothing more. Simplify your creative world with royalty-free content and let your mind manage your creativity, not your usage rights. Reallusion royalty-free 3D, the one stop digital content shop.

Royalty- free content never has a cap on use and will never expire

Royalty free is intended to help promotions of the content, both Reallusion and CCD made. Any questions or concerns, here is the place to post.
Again, I have to place this message:
If you do not want your content to be made royalty free, you must contact Reallusion by May 22, 2009 to request your content to be removed from all Reallusion store fronts.
To have your content removed:
