AtmosFX Commercial Use Licenses

Private use versus commercial use

AtmosFX Digital Decorations are designed for private use. Whether using our DVDs or digital downloads, please feel free to thrill friends, family, neighbors...anyone really. They are meant to entertain trick-or-treaters or make your house look even more dazzling during the Christmas season. But you shouldn't be charging anyone a fee to enjoy these decorations. Nor should you use them in a non-private manner such as in an attraction, special event, on TV, part of film or art exhibit, etc. without the permission of AtmosFX via a Commercial Use License. If you intend to use our content in manner other than private use please read on. Or if you're not sure if you need a commercial use license or not, email

Do I need to purchase a Commercial Use License?

A Commercial Use License is required only for commercial (for-profit) enterprises. If AtmosFX Digital Decorations are used at a business, party or event where proceeds are donated to charity (non-profit), a Commercial Use License is not required. Similarly, if AtmosFX Digital Decorations are used at a private residence or neighborhood event, a Commercial Use License is not needed, provided the owner is not charging an admission fee for for-profit purposes. For questions about Commercial Use Licenses, email

There is an exception for non-profit or charitable organizations. If you are a non-profit or charitable organization that seeks to utilize AtmosFX Digital Decorations in a haunted attraction or other festive event, you may receive a Commercial Use License at no cost. To qualify, we ask you complete this short form, and an AtmosFX representative will respond shortly.

What is a Commercial Use License?

A Commercial Use License allows a commercial (for-profit) enterprise to legally utilize AtmosFX Digital Decorations.

  • A Commercial Use License is only required at for-profit enterprises or events and must be purchased for each digital decoration utilized at a specific location.
  • Purchasing a Commercial Use License grants permission to display the specified content to an audience but does NOT grant privileges to resell, distribute, redistribute, duplicate, edit, or re-purpose AtmosFX's copyrighted content in any manner.

Commercial Use Licenses can be purchased in the Online Store and are listed at the bottom of each digital decoration product page.

If you require a Commercial Use License for multiple locations an/or multiple decorations, or have questions about the Commercial Use License policy, email
