We will pay you a royalty for all sales of Public Products incorporating your Primary or Secondary Content for which we receives payment “Royalty”. The Royalty rate may be updated from time-to-time.

The amounts charged for (i)(ii) equals to RM30.
Royalties are only paid on Products that incorporate your Content. We will not pay you Royalties on articles or items that are optional or that by themselves are not essential to the Product but when they are added to Products they make them more useful, versatile, or attractive “Accessories”, even when purchased at the same time as a Product that incorporates your Content.
We encourage you to review our guidelines and familiarize yourself with what constitutes Content violation. As noted above, you agree that you will forfeit any Earnings for Content or Products that violate our Content guidelines and rules.
