Asset License Information

The license that you choose greatly affects how the consumers can use your product, and how sellers can let their work be used. It is important to note that these are just general summaries of the types of license, we are not lawyers. It is recommended to do further research into the types of license if you are unsure what to pick.

It is up to the seller, to ensure your license is followed. It is up to the consumer to follow the rules of the license set. If you are buying assets for a game you want to release commercially, ensure the assets you buy have a corresponding license that allows this. We are not responsible for any disputes between sellers and customers (unless of course they come within the UMOGA platform, such as someone trying to sell on assets you sold them on the UMOGA Store, in which case you can contact us and we will remove the conflicting assets).

If you need to change a license of one of your assets, you will have to re-submit the asset and delete the previous version. A change in license will not affect consumers who bought the assets while they were under a previous license.
