Identifying which license you should offer with your 3D models is an extremely important part of selling your work through the Sketchfab Store.
Sketchfab offers two types of royalty-free licenses: Standard and Editorial.
As a valued contributor to our marketplace, we strongly recommend you make sure you use the correct license on your models. This will help buyers more easily discover your models when looking for specific license.
You can adjust your license offerings on your store items through the Model Properties.
Standard licenses are for generic content that you created as an original creation and can be used for commercial purposes by buyers. This type of content cannot include anything with identifiable branding, logos or designs that may be copyrighted by someone else.
Editorial licenses are for more specific content where you may have created the model based on real-life copyrighted objects and you may not own the original design or associated brand or logo copyright. These types of models are typically licensed on an Editorial basis and can be used for non-commercial projects such as news items or documentaries.
Why is my license locked?
Sometimes, you may notice that your license has been "locked" to the Editorial license by a member of Sketchfab's staff. This is typically because we found third-party intellectual property in your model and it must be sold under the Editorial license. If you think there has been a mistake, please contact us here.
