I. Increased Royalty and TurboSquid Exclusivity
Membership in the SquidGuild entitles you to an increased royalty rate as high as an additional 20% of the Product Price on a Purchase. Please see the Publisher Agreement for more details on Royalty Amounts.
As a condition for participation in the SquidGuild, You must publish all of your 3D Model Stock Media Products exclusively with TurboSquid (including any variations thereof, such as different poly counts, Textures and file types), as of the start date of your participation in the SquidGuild, and subject to the exclusions below. You must use one member account under this agreement, unless you ask and receive permission from Support to use more than one member account. If you use more than one member account to publish 3D Models, all such member accounts must be SquidGuild members and comply with this agreement.
For clarity, if you desire to non-exclusively publish Stock Media Products of media types other than 3D Models (such as Textures), such Stock Media Products must be published in another member account that is not a SquidGuild member. These products will not be eligible for the additional Royalty Amounts entitled to SquidGuild Members, and all Stock Media Products published in a SquidGuild member account must be exclusive.
