SubstanceSubstance - Purchases & Licenses - License questions
 on: May 31, 2021, 11:34:21 pm 
Looking over the legalese and it's fairly clear but I had a couple questions:

Regarding termination, if I create content with Substance (i.e. "licensee content") for a project, and then terminate my subscription, I still retain rights to use that licensee content (commercially or otherwise), right? The subscription is for licensing the software and the right to work with it and the copyrighted content (i.e. materials and such) within, but the content I create is mine forever right?


Regarding the indie vs other license tiers. At exactly what moment does one upgrade from indie to the other tiers? Say I produce a project and begin selling it--firstly, I don't need a subscription for Substance at all at this point if I am no longer using the software to update/modify/produce content for the project, correct?

But assuming I maintain my subscription throughout to provide support/updates or simply work on a next project... If I make $100k in year one, I must upgrade at the beginning of year 2 and hold that license all year? If at the end of year 2, I only make $90k, can I then return to an indie license at that point for year 3?

Finally, as an individual, what exactly contributes to this $100k? The wording is not super clear on this. The logical assumption would be "any revenue derived from any work that interacts with substance software in any way", but it doesn't really say that explicitly. Does other income matter? If I have a day job, earn interest on savings, or mow my neighbors lawn for $5?

Thanks for your time! Great product :)

Additionally, is it possible to upgrade from monthly to annual subscription? If not, would cancelling my monthly, and starting an annual at the end of my monthly, amount to the same thing?
