Non-Original Design Standards

Do not portray, sell or deliver others’ work as your own.


Elements that can be similar:


Generic shapes – for example, points, lines, squares, ellipsoids, cones, etc.


Functional designs – for example, a circle, a square, a diamond, heart, ears on a tiger, wheels on a car, or green color to convey environmental responsibility.


Uncopyrightable elements – non-protectable content such as:


Short phrases like ‘Show me the moola’ or ‘Bring me up’.


Facts and theories like scientific facts or the Quantum theory.  


Abstract Ideas but not the way an idea is expressed. For example, the very basic plot of comics can be an idea but not the way the designer expressed that idea.     


Materials that are commonly found in a work of a particular type (for example, the presence of castles, knights, and dragons in a medieval story); Certain elements and details of creative content that are customary or considered necessary to a particular genre. 


Unique concept: Sellers / Vendors must create their own unique implementations of elements, even if the elements are not new, creating a new design concept.

Incorporating other sellers’ work in your delivery versus profit Arbitrage

Sellers / Vendors are welcome to incorporate purchases which they have all required rights to, in their deliveries. For example, designs as backgrounds for music videos, images for websites, images for presentations, etc. With that said, by no means can purchases be delivered “as is” with no significant added change, value or transformative use, under the misconception that it is the seller’s original work and in order to gain profit from price differences.
