Permission to Use/Display Autodesk Copyrighted Materials

Autodesk’s products, services, and Website content (including images, models, content screen shots, text, and software) are owned by Autodesk, Inc., and its licensors and may not be used without a license.  Unless Autodesk explicitly gives you permission in the guidelines below or in another agreement between you and Autodesk (such as a Software License Agreement, Terms of Use, Terms of Service, or other written agreement), you may not use, reproduce, distribute, display, or perform such materials.

Screen Shots

Screen shots are the individual screen displays contained within Autodesk® software applications.

Other than screen shots that appear upon booting up a product, or on opening screens, or “splash screens,” or screen shots taken from products or applications that Autodesk has not yet commercially released (including technology previews and beta-version software), you may make a fair use of a limited number of screen shots for purely educational or illustrative purposes (such educational guides, tutorials, how-to books, training presentations, product reviews, video demonstrations of the software, Websites, etc.) provided you adhere to the following guidelines:

  1. You may not use screen shots that contain third-party content unless you separately seek and obtain permission from such third party to display its content.

  2. Your use may not directly or indirectly state or imply sponsorship, affiliation, or endorsement of your product or service by or with Autodesk.

  3. You may not alter the screen shot in any way except to resize the screen shot in direct proportion to the original. Screen shots must be reproduced in their entirety.

  4. You may add commentary or other text analysis as long as it is very clearly attributable to you, and not to Autodesk.

  5. As stated above, you may not use screen shots from Autodesk beta products or other products that are subject to non-disclosure obligations and/or that have not yet been commercially released by Autodesk.

  6. You must include the following attribution statement on all materials containing Autodesk screen shots: "Autodesk screen shots reprinted with the permission of Autodesk, Inc."

  7. If your materials include references to an Autodesk product, show in plain text the full name of the product with corresponding trademark symbol at the first and/or most prominent mention (e.g., Autodesk®, AutoCAD®, Civil 3D®, DWG™, Inventor®, Revit®, etc.) in such materials. Your use of or reference to any Autodesk trademarks should comply with Autodesk Trademark Guidelines for Use, and should include a trademark attribution paragraph that correctly lists all Autodesk trademarks referenced in your materials, such as, “Autodesk, AutoCAD, DWG, the DWG logo, and Inventor are registered trademarks or trademarks of Autodesk, Inc., and/or its subsidiaries and/or affiliates in the USA and other countries.”

  8. Your use of Autodesk's screen shots may not be incorporated into obscene or pornographic material, and may not, in Autodesk's sole opinion, be disparaging, defamatory, or libelous to Autodesk, any of its products, or any other person or entity.

  9. Your materials should not be mostly or solely composed of Autodesk screen shots or other Autodesk intellectual property. If Autodesk screen shots or other Autodesk intellectual property would represent the majority of the material you wish to reproduce and/or distribute, you should first obtain Autodesk’s permission before publishing or distributing such content. Requests must be made using the Permissions Request Form.

All other use of Autodesk screen shots requires prior written permission from Autodesk, including but not limited to any proposed use of screen shots in or for advertising, commercial videos, television, movies, or commercials.  If you require further written permission, use the Permissions Request Form.  When you have completed the form, email it to permissions@autodesk.com.
