On December 2016 VectorOpenStock has become Vexels. Since then all VectorOpenStock copyrights belong to Vexels. All licenses aquired to VectorOpenStock from 2009 to 2016 are still valid. It is then desirable but not mandatory to change attribution links to 'Vexels.com'. It is just a change of domain, the owners and team behind remind the same. Enjoy our new features!
