Hello. I am just curious what happens to a model after it's downloaded? I mean I see some have been downloaded, but I have no idea who downloaded them and what for. They don't even leave a thank you for a comment. So I am wondering what can be done to keep up with my work? For all I know, they are taking the models and selling them on another site.
What I want to see happen is people make derivative works for their own personal use, say download a mushroom and make a mushroom farm out of many different mushroom downloads. I don't mind that, but for commercial use, which includes distributing them on sites that have ad revenue, even not directly selling them., or any activity involving the transfer of money, then I need to get paid for my work. What controls are in place for this and how can I continue to contribute without putting myself at risk. Also my textures are all rights reserved, as they are my 2d art. So the model is free for personal use, but not the artwork.
Thank you Ry
