    Looks like they excluded Youtube ad revenue from their definition of commercial use, which means artists can legally monetize their Renderman works on Youtube, Vimeo etc. Although I'm not 100% sure, because "indirect revenue" implies YouTube incidentally placing ads on the videos rather than the "direct" approach of a YouTube creator switching on monetizing. Who knows. They kind of weasel-worded it, but I'm sure it'll be clarified in the days ahead.

    13. Are there any profit earning exceptions to the "Non-Commercial" use rule?

    Yes. Indirect revenue generating activities such as personal images or clips posted on YouTube or Vimeo that may result in advertising revenue are permitted. Please include a credit that your work was rendered with Pixar's RenderMan. If you are uncertain as to whether your requirement qualifies as non-commercial, please contact [email protected] for clarification.
