    Commercial license needed for pub lo's?

    It just occurred to me to wonder this. I know most designers require that you buy a commercial license to their products if you plan to sell the finished lo, card, scrapbook, etc. using their designs. But how does that work for published lo's? If I get paid by a publication is that really a "sale" that would require a commercial license for the designs I used in the published piece? I am assuming not, but why not? How is being paid by CK any different than by a customer? Just wondering.

    No, a published page is not the same as selling a piece of wall decor. We appreciate the advertising that publishing gets the designers and an extended license is not required

    That's how I found DD! After seeing pages made with DD products in the big scrapbooking mags, I had to come check this place out! I am so glad I did!!!
