My design resources may not be resold or redistributed, as is or in any other way, which would put them in direct competition with me, the original author, thereby making it harder for me to make a modest living from my hard work. The images may, however, be incorporated into both personal and commercial derivative designs and these works may be sold or given away as individual products IF the original image is significantly changed and cannot be extracted by simply removing the added-on element.
1. The licensee is not acquiring the ownership of the original images, but is acquiring the right to use the images under specific circumstances. The copyright (i.e. ownership) is not being transferred to the licensee and Barnali Bagchi aka moonbeam1212 continues to own the graphic images themselves, but through the licensing agreement grants the right to use them in specific circumstances, such that the basic right of the original artist to profit from them is preserved.
2. The license is not transferable. A customer may not redistribute or share the product files with anyone through file-sharing groups and thereby deprive the original owner of the images of the rightful profit of their labor.
3. The use of licensed imagery in both personal and commercial projects is permitted with specific provisos and exclusions. You can use the images in commercial projects such as webdesign, 3d texturing, advertising, illustration, printable projects, candy wrapper businesses, card making, signage, games, and as photographic backgrounds.

The key here is in the word "derivative design". You can create derivative designs using my design resources but cannot create another set of products from them which you will then sell as a design resource. You must DO something with them that makes them into your own unique design. The buyer is not permitted to simply recycle or reshuffle the original work into a new package - such as by only changing its color - and call that their artistic product. Or, individual images may also be used in a one-time basis in commercial projects (such as webdesign or illustration or advertising or signage). But the original "out of the box" images may not simply be re-colored, re-purposed or repackaged to be resold as another design resource under a new name.
