This right may not be exercised by subcontractors of Licensee, including Purchaser. This license may not be used for monetary or commercial gain exceeding $2,000.00 per year.

Any Purchaser licensing Licensed Material on behalf of a Licensee hereby represents and warrants that: (i) Purchaser is authorized to act as an agent on behalf of Licensee and has full power and authority to bind Licensee to this Agreement; and (ii) if Licensee subsequently disputes such power or authority, Purchaser shall be liable for any failure of Licensee to comply with the terms of this Agreement. This shall not excuse Purchaser’s obligation to pay the Subscription Fee.
You may distribute, publicly display, publicly perform, or publicly digitally perform the Licensee Work only under the terms of this License, and You must include a copy of, or the Uniform Resource Identifier for, this License with every copy of the Work You distribute, publicly display, publicly perform, or publicly digitally perform. You may not offer or impose any terms on the Work that restrict the terms of this License or the ability of a recipient of the Work to exercise the rights granted to that recipient under the terms of the License. You may not sublicense the Work. You must keep intact all notices that refer to this License and to the disclaimer of warranties. When You distribute, publicly display, publicly perform, or publicly digitally perform the Work, You may not impose any technological measures on the Work that restrict the ability of a recipient of the Work from You to exercise the rights granted to that recipient under the terms of the License. This Section applies to the Work as incorporated in a Licensee Work, but this does not require the Licensee Work apart from the Work itself to be made subject to the terms of this License. If You create a Licensee Work, upon notice from any Licensor, You must to the extent practicable remove from the Licensee Work any credit required by this Agreement as requested.
You may not exercise any of the rights granted to You above in any manner that is primarily intended for or directed toward commercial advantage or private monetary compensation over the total of $2,000.00 in gross sales per calendar year.

The exchange of the Work for other copyrighted works by means of digital file-sharing or otherwise shall not be considered to be intended for or directed toward commercial advantage or private monetary compensation, provided there is no payment of any monetary compensation in connection with the exchange of copyrighted works.
If You distribute, publicly display, publicly perform, or publicly digitally perform the Work or Licensee Works, You must keep intact all copyright notices for the Work and provide, reasonable to the medium or means You are utilizing: (i) the name of the Original Author (or pseudonym, if applicable) if supplied, and/or (ii) if the Original Author and/or Licensor designate another party or parties (e.g. a sponsor institute, publishing entity, journal) for attribution (“Attribution Parties”) in Licensor’s copyright notice, terms of service or by other reasonable means, the name of such party or parties; the title of the Work if supplied; to the extent reasonably practicable, the Uniform Resource Identifier, if any, that Licensor specifies to be associated with the Work, unless such URI does not refer to the copyright notice or licensing information for the Work. The credit required by this Section may be implemented in any reasonable manner; provided, however, that in the case of a Licensee Work, if a credit for all contributing authors of the Licensee Work appears, then at a minimum such credit will appear as part of these credits and in a manner at least as prominent as the credits for the other contributing authors. For the avoidance of doubt, You may only use the credit required by this clause for the purpose of attribution in the manner set out above and, by exercising Your rights under this License, You may not implicitly or explicitly assert or imply any connection with, sponsorship or endorsement by the Original Author, Licensor and/or Attribution Parties, as appropriate, of You or Your use of the Work, without the separate, express prior written permission of the Original Author, Licensor and/or Attribution Parties.

If (1) and (2) are not reasonably available to Licensor, then it may (3) terminate this Agreement upon written notice and, after return of the Licensed Material, refund to Licensee pre-paid fees, pro-rated for the remainder of the period for which such fees have been pre-paid.
