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 90% off the stated product price* per extra user.
- In other words, extra licenses cost 10% of the stated product price* for each additional 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.
School building licenses
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. (Very small districts, see below.)
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.
Using a Purchase Order
Easy! Just email your request to me using my contact form. Be sure to provide:
- Item names that you would like to buy. Be sure to specify grade level, if applicable.
- Name of purchaser (e.g. “Adams School District” or “Jefferson Elementary”).
- Contact information: Name of contact person, email address (very important) and phone number.
If you prefer to send a PO form, you can scan it and attach it to an email. Send the email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Or… you can mail your order or PO form to me at the address below (the same one used for payment).
I will reply to your email or form via email and attach my products as PDF's or enclose them in a zip file. If the products are too large for an email system to handle, I will provide a download link.
Attached to the email will also be a PDF invoice with payment instructions. Print it out and have your financial person pay the invoice by sending a check made payable to Betsy Weigle and mailed to my business address:
903 E 38th Ave
Spokane, WA 99203
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.
