Terms of use for Digitrax Sound Depot

Digitrax has created Sound Depot to allow our customers to share sound projects they have written or modified with each other.  It is our hope that many people will contribute their projects to this archive to make the model railroading hobby more enjoyable for everyone.

Each person sharing and downloading sound project files through this archive agree to a creative commons attribution-noncommercial-share alike license.  This allows us all to share the files with others and to modify them as long as we attribute the files included, do not use the files for commercial purposes and agree to share any modifications under the same or similar licensing terms.  Complete licensing information about this type of license is provided below.

Digitrax Sound Definition Language is covered by US Patent 8,229,582.  All sound projects created using this format may be shared with others at no charge.  Sound projects may not be sold except under license from Digitrax, Inc.  It is OK to charge another person for downloading a sound project into a device and this will not affect the ownership of the rights in the actual sound project.
