    "Similarly, you may not use the 3D asset for the direct or indirect promotion of alcoholic beverages, tobacco, gambling, weapons and explosives."

    Would that also mean that I am not allowed to use 3D Models of airplanes and helicopter in a war video game for example?

    Hi @jpod977

    Your use case is totally permitted as you are not promoting the sale of actual weapons or explosives.

    Hello! I need some clarify... What if I bought raw scaned model and made from this model lowpoly model for using in games. And I want to sell this low poly model that I made by myself. Can I do it or it's forbidden by standart licence? Thanks!

    Hello,

    That would not be considered enough of a change from the original asset, so it would be forbidden, sorry!

    Dear James, Thanks for the comments! But I wanted to know - do I have the right to sell 3D models of museum exhibits, naturally under the Editorial license? On the one hand, museums own licenses for real objects, but on the other hand, if I scan, for example, a car that does not belong to me, then I do not own either the real object, nor the owner of the design, trademark and much more, but I can sell car scans. Does the legislation of each particular country matter in this case, or is it possible to apply common practice? Tell me please

    Hi ferret - I am not a lawyer, but here is my 2 cents:

    There is no simple answer to this question - it will depend on the object/exhibit in question, whether you are talking about 3D models or 3D scans, the circumstances of creating or capturing the object, the museum's imaging policies and how intensely they wish to enforce them. Many other factors too.

    It is generally considered that objects in the public domain (which as you note different countries judge differently / have different laws) then 2D or 3D images of it can not be claimed under copyright by a museum - so you *should* be fine creating a 3D model and selling it.

    I recommend that you read these articles by Michael Weinberg which explains it much better than I can:

    https://www.shapeways.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/white-paper-3d-scanning-world-without-copyright.pdf

    https://slate.com/technology/2019/11/nefertiti-bust-neues-museum-3d-printing.html

    As 3D scanning becomes more common I am sure we will see legal precedents form and new laws get put into place.

    As a general rule you should check with the museum you want to scan at and prefer the Editorial license if you are unsure.

    bom dia! preciso que cancelem essa inscrição nesse site, cancelem a assinatura nesse site! podem ver que eu nunca acessei nada aqui, nem produzi nenhum modelo 3D, imaginei que este site pudesse fornecer aulas de anatomia 3D, 

    preciso que cancelem imediatamente, pois vou cancelar junto ao cartão, pq está só gerando fatura no cartão,

    aguardo um posicionamento da empresa, o mais breve possível!

    peço desculpas pelos transtornos,

    att

    Hello,

    Sorry, I'm a bit confused. I don't see any paid subscription on your account: https://sketchfab.com/iracellec
