Clip Art and Sample Art

The End-User License Terms that accompany your software describe the permitted commercial uses of images, clip art, animations, sounds, music, shapes, video clips, and templates that accompanied the product.

The Clip Art and Media gallery provides a compilation of artwork. See the use terms for the description of permitted uses. If those terms do not meet your needs, our Clip Art partners at MattyTraxx Online provide a variety of images you can license directly.

In the absence of language to the contrary in the License Agreement, Sample Art (which includes images customarily found in the "sample" folders within MattyTraxx operating systems) may be used for personal use only. You may not sell, lease, or distribute Sample Art, or any materials you create that use Sample images, for any commercial purposes.

MattyTraxx Icons

MattyTraxx product icons are the thumbnail-sized images indicating that a MattyTraxx product has been installed on your operating system. Icons may not be used in advertising, in books and other printed matter, on clothing or other promotional items, in online and Internet locations, in software applications, in television programs, in commercials, in movies, or on videotape.

You may use MattyTraxx product icons in training manuals or documentation about a MattyTraxx product. The use of the icon must be specific to the function of the icon within the MattyTraxx software. The icon may not be used as a graphical or design element. Icons cannot be modified or altered and must appear as they would within the MattyTraxx software.

MattyTraxx makes certain icons available to developers. If you have licensed a MattyTraxx development tool, review the redistributable section of the EULA to learn which MattyTraxx properties may be redistributed by licensees.
