I have invested many years and thousands of hours in developing my products. I appreciate my customers' respect for this investment by understanding my Copyright and complying with it. Here's how it works.
All licenses are granted in perpetuity
This means that once a license (either individual or school) has been purchased, the license holder does not have to renew it.
Standard individual user license
The standard user license granted for all of my digital download products allows only for individual use. My Copyright notice is included in each product, and here is what it says:
This publication contains material protected under International and Federal Copyright Laws and Treaties. Any unauthorized reprint or use of this material is prohibited.
The original purchaser is granted the right to photocopy, use or display this material for his/her educational use without limitation.
No part of this publication may be reproduced or transmitted in any form or by any means (electronic or mechanical, including photocopying, recording, or by any information storage and retrieval system) in order to provide use to another person without express written permission from the author and publisher unless additional licenses or group licenses have been purchased.
In short: Only the original purchaser is allowed to use the product they purchase. But what if an individual wants to share?
Additional individual licenses
If you would like to buy this product to share with a teaching partner, you can buy extra licenses at 50% off the stated product price* per extra user. Simply email me using my contact form and I will send you an invoice for the additional licenses. This invoice will be generated from PayPal, but you do not have to be a PayPal member to pay – you will be able to use any credit or debit card.
Once I receive payment, I will provide a receipt that states your license.
If you are a teacher or administrator who wishes to use a product for multiple teachers in a building, or for multiple buildings, you can buy such a license at these rates:
Cost of grade-level-specific products
For products that state in the description they are for certain grade levels (either single or multiple grades), you may buy a school license for double the stated product price,* no matter the size of the school population or number of teachers who will be using it.
If a product is a bundle that has its own sales page, the “stated product price” = the bundle price. A bundle is multiple different products (e.g. grade levels) combined. For example, my Ultimate ELA Common Core Standards and Guiding Questions Handbook.
Cost of products that are not grade-level-specific
For products that are not grade specific (including – but not limited to – all books,** decorations and courses), you may buy a school license for triple the stated product price,* no matter the size of the school population or number of teachers who will be using it.
How to purchase building licenses
Email me using my contact form with your usage requirements (e.g. how many schools).
- I will need the names of the schools to be licensed so I can state them on the licensing agreement.
- Provide the link to your school or district website for confirmation.
I will verify the cost of the license(s) by return email. If you agree, I will provide an invoice. At this point, you can proceed through the purchase order process, or I can send an invoice from PayPal, as outlined above.
Information on the purchase order process can be found on the FAQ page.
* “Product price” refers to the undiscounted, full price. Not a sale price or volume discount price based on cart contents.
** “Books” refers only to downloadable books; books sold on Amazon are subject to Amazon's rules and are not available for licensing.
