To ensure that all parties are protected from the misuse of images and brands, this Angel Policy should be followed when using copyrighted designs. This policy protects the craft industry by ensuring that crafters who want to sell their handmade products can. It also protects our brands, ensuring that they can continue to provide a wide range of innovations.
AVEC’s images and the licensed brands which we supply are copyrighted. This means that they may not be copied without permission. To help protect the rights granted by these copyrights, each handcrafted item created for sale must be personally and individually made by the selling artist and the finished item and the elements used may not be reproduced or copied by any means - including graphic, digital, electronic, mechanical or photocopying.
Mass production, assembly-line construction and production by workers for hire is strictly prohibited.
An Angel Policy for products created by AVEC under licence from third parties.
There is no restriction to the sale of handmade cards using elements from AVEC licensed product ranges for charitable purposes, provided there is no claim that the cards were created by or are endorsed by the licensee in any way.
There is no restriction on Licensed products being used to produce craft items for enjoyment amongst friends and family (such as non-commercial gift giving).
We do not object to the use of licence craft products for producing cards for resale in a limited quantity up to a maximum of 100 per year (per licence).
Any variation on this for specific licences are specified below.
All elements of AVEC’s ranges produced under license are protected by copyright, owned by the licensee and should not themselves be reproduced.
