Today we are releasing significant revisions to the terms related to publishing and purchasing content via TurboSquid.
The ultimate goal of these changes is to simplify the verbiage without sacrificing the content or coverage provided to artists, customers or our core business while incorporating changes based on this ever-evolving industry and the often unexpected lessons learned from our 13 years in the business.
Once the changes have been made, upon logging into TurboSquid.com, artists will be prompted to make additional permission selections (as depicted in the image on the right).
We strongly encourage you to read the details related to each option prior to making your selection, however we have provided short descriptions for each option below.

Feedback, questions, issues
Prior to release, the artist review period brought a number of valid questions, issues and concerns to our attention. Although these documents are now live and in effect, we encourage you to keep the discussion going through the use of the Licenses Forum (which is only viewable by artists).
We will be using the same forum threads for each license document to address questions you may have. Answers to the issues that arise within these threads may also be added to the Royalty Free License FAQ, if deemed necessary.

3. My third favorite thing about TurboSquid is every single thing about TurboSquid. I know this is a total cheater answer, like asking for infinite wishes on your third wish, but whatever. I’ve worked in New Orleans for a long time, and the TS office is easily the most positive, employee-friendly workplace I’ve ever encountered. When I started, I was pretty sure I’d joined a cult, because about 5 people told me within the first week that it was the best job they’d ever had… and if it IS a cult, I’m completely happy to drink the kool-aid / eat the cereal / wear the tentacles. I love it here. (more…)
