OK, if I’m making a book cover for a client do I buy regular or extended licence? Let’s say I want to use font or a texture as a part of a particular book cover. Cheers

Well I think you only need a Regular License to work here. You are on a single project of making the book cover for your client and you want to purchase the items to make that cover. I don’t think it’s considered a “resale” as @dekurvajo said.

Check this out: http://graphicriver.net/licenses/regular_extended . Regular license, in term a, c, e, and especially f – it’s your case I think.

So, go with a Regular license and good luck with the works. :)

Technically, I am selling him the cover so it may be considered resale.. that’s where it’s confusing… need some mods to contribute here.

I have flagged your post for a staff reply. I think that any staff will refer to this rules: http://graphicriver.net/licenses/regular_extended . So if you have time just check out what your case fits into. As far as I know from what you have described from the beginning, then it’s OK to use Regular.

f. You may use the Work in a work which you are creating for your own purposes or for your client who has asked you to create it.

Usually – for one project for one client – you only need the regular license. But I think that the question is if the customer wants to resell the book. If that’s the case then you need the extended license.

Thank you!

Doesn't really make sense to buy stuff here for it then, since one element will cost half or sometimes even more of the price for a cover design. Sad.. Some great stuff here on GR.

Man… think about it. The buyer should be your clients. Thats all. Still don’t get it? “Single item for sale” You do the design, typography, etc… thats an another thing, another invoice. And yes, you might have to explain to him, this part of your job is an another thing. Also you have to tell him, there is no exclusivity, that photo or illustration could be appear any time on an another book cover or whatever. An another solution is hire an illustrator, he will do the job with exclusivity but you can be sure, the price will be much different. And if the illustrator is a pro, he would like to know which country, which publisher, how many pieces (numero), how many years etc…
