Hi

I’m not sure if the icons ( www.iconsweets.com,www.iconsweets2.com) can be attached to the main pack with my theme ?

Thanks

A little vague, does not mention if you can re-sell the icons which is what you do when you include them in the main.zip pack. If a license states that you can use it commercially that means you can use it for your business. But that does not allow you to make their work your business i.e. selling those icons for profit (even as part of a larger work).

Now the question is if you are allowed to do something that is not mentioned in the license… ?

We would love to see how you'll be using our icons in
your designs. Don't hesitate to contact us! 

I will quote from the above: “You may NOT redistribute the enclosed icons from any other server.”

On the first look that tells me you can’t redistribute. On the second look there is that “enclosed” word, not sure what exactly that means. Anyone?

I think you cannot include the package from yummygum into the download package “as is” but you can export them and include them as images for instance. Correct me if I’m wrong

edit: @ivor You are a lawyer, you should know it :D

“You may use these icons for both commercial and non-commercial projects and customize them any way you like”

“commercial”, “non-commercial” and “re-distribution” are 3 different things

So you cannot assume “re-distribution” is allowed if “commercial” usage is allowed.
