License for Commercial Work
I have been a subscriber to Widget Widget for a while now. I recently came across the following(courtesy of Aqua Soft):Widget Widget releases all of their works under the Creative Commons 2.5 license. This license provides for the free redistribution of all of their works provided that attribution and license information are both provided. More importantly, this license applies to their current "subscription" work and their pre-existing work.
You may view their Terms and Conditions here
.License for Non-Commercial Work
Ultimately, this means that I (as a subscriber) am free to redistribute the icons of any given set under two conditions (detail and example below):
Attribute the icons to Widget Widget
Link to the Widget Widget Terms and Conditions
So, what's the catch and how do you get them?
As well as the cost of my Widget Widget subscription, I will also be hosting the icons (in
format), so I am
asking for something in return...
As most of you know I have recently set up MacThemes UK
, along with a DA account
. Well in return for the icons, I ask that you register at the Community
. As long as you participate within the community, you will be granted access to the Widget Widget sub board - which will be set up shortly. Within said board will be all the icons that are available from Widget Widget, for both Mac and PC users.
Why am I asking for something in return?
Apart from the subscription costs and hosting mentioned, there is also the fact that MacThemes UK is a new community. I am hoping that by extending this hand and offer, it will entice new users into the community and we can really get the site alive and active
There is no advertising at the main site or community, that is a pet hate of mine - so I am NOT
gaining clicks. I gain nothing monetary wise, only the community spirit that I hope will develop.
So, I hope that you will like what is on offer and what is asked of you in return *Please note that only their current icon catalog (which is huge) is up for grabs. I will not be offering up future releases. I believe it would be unfair of me to offer what their subscription service offers.
, register, and get some delicious desk candy!
The Widget Widget sub board will be available shortly and as mentioned, you will be granted access as long as you participate within the community (i.e. post in the forums and get to know us
