Can I use my image generations for commercial purposes?

The good news is that as per our Terms of Service, you can indeed use your images for commercial purposes! There are a few caveats though, so here’s a full breakdown:

Leonardo.Ai allows you to use the website for both personal and commercial purposes, however, the content generated by users is subject to and governed by Section 3 in our Terms of Service.

Effectively, while a paid subscription is active, users retain full ownership, copyright, and all other intellectual property rights to their images.

For images that are made public, Leonardo.Ai and its successors retain worldwide perpetual rights to use, copy, reproduce, process, adapt, modify, publish, transmit, create derivative works of, publicly display, publicly perform, sublicense, and distribute images and text prompts you input into the services, or any assets produced by the service at your direction.

Additionally, other users are granted a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license to access these publicly available assets through the service and to use those assets only as enabled by a feature of the service.

Please refer to our Terms of Service for full details, but here are some detailed examples for clarity:

Example 1

As a free plan user, Jason wants to create a design for his T-shirt business…

  • Jason can use free tools such as the AI-Generations tool to create new concepts.

  • Jason can use any of the fine-tuned models to experiment with different styles for his concept.

  • Jason can “remix” another image on the public feed for his concept.

  • Jason can “copy prompt” from another image on the public feed to experiment with his own concept.

  • However, all of Jason’s design concepts will also be publicly viewable for other Leonardo users to copy and remix, just like he did.

Example 2

As a paid plan user, Jane wants to create a design for her sticker business…

  • Jane can use the complete suite of Leonardo’s tools to create new sticker concepts. E.g., Alchemy

  • Jane can use any of the fine-tuned models as well as train her own models for her own private use.

  • Jane can still “remix” another image on the public feed for her concepts.

  • Jane can “copy prompt” from another image on the public feed to experiment with her own concepts.

  • However, Jane’s design concepts have the option to remain private, preventing other Leonardo users from viewing, copying, and remixing.

It is key to understand that in both examples, Jason and Jane can download their own generations for commercial usage. However, Jason might also have his designs used by others too, due to his images being public. This is the main distinction.
