Copyright for the resources in the Downloads Section of the articulate community website.

Hello,

I was wondering what is the correct use/copyright of the resources and e-learning examples which are published in the Downloads section of https://community.articulate.com/

The terms of use agreement say: (a) Downloadable Assets. An example of a downloadable asset is a PowerPoint template that Articulate provides. You will have a limited, nonexclusive, nontransferable, terminable right to use, reproduce, display, and distribute downloadable assets in a commercial work (including the right to showcase it as part of your portfolio). All other rights are reserved. Accordingly, you may not distribute, modify, or host downloadable assets as your own content (or permit any third party to do so).

Does it mean that if I download a resource from the Downloads section, I do not have a right to modify the file in a commercial work without adding attribution credits? If attribution credits are necessary, is it enough to specify the name of the person who originally created the file together with the corresponding link to the Downloads section of community.articulate.com?

Thank you,

Elena

Hi Elena,

You're allowed to download them and use them in your e-learning projects. The Terms of Service limitation is referring to representing them as your own work for distribution, sale, etc.  

Some of the downloads are posted by our staff whereas others are from community members. Either way, they've been cleared to share here and used by folks in the E-Learning Heroes Community!

Let us know if you have any other questions!
