Web 7.0 DIDComm Notation Template

NOTE: DIDComm Notation elements are adaptations of the icons provided by Microsoft as part of the Microsoft Office suite. To quote from the Microsoft documentation:

You can insert icons into Microsoft 365 documents. You can rotate, color, and resize them with no loss of image quality. These icons are free to use and there’s no royalty or copyright to worry about.

In addition, …

You may sell a spreadsheet, database, or PowerPoint deck you made using Microsoft software. The spreadsheet, database, or PowerPoint deck must be created using legitimate, licensed Microsoft software.

Finally, …

What am I allowed to use premium creative content for?
Excel for Microsoft 365 Word for Microsoft 365 Outlook for Microsoft 365 PowerPoint for Microsoft 365 PowerPoint for the web SharePoint in Microsoft 365

If you’re a Microsoft 365 subscriber you have access to thousands of royalty-free images, icons, and more that you can use in your documents, presentations, workbooks, and SharePoint in Microsoft 365. But you may have questions about what you’re legally allowed to do with that creative content. This article will try to answer that!

You can use the content for anything permitted by the applicable Microsoft 365 license so you should review your End-User License Agreement (EULA) to understand exactly what you can do with works created in Microsoft 365 and SharePoint.

Simply put… You can use the premium images and other creative content however you see fit, as long as it’s within an Microsoft 365 app or SharePoint site. For commercial customers, this includes selling PowerPoint slide decks, Excel workbooks, or Word documents that include this content, just as you would have sold these files in the past.

This includes exporting the Microsoft 365 file to another format. You can modify the picture, use it in the file forever, and use it anywhere in the world. Basically, do the same things that you would have done with Microsoft 365 documents in the past, but now you can include the stock images and other content from the Insert Pictures dialog.
