Usage / Licensing of Photographs
Rusty Firmin ® remains sole owner of all copyrights for the photographs,
drawings, and hybrid/composite images on this site, used on this site as
well as linked from this site to third parties.
If you want to purchase an image, please describe precisely how you
intend to use the image(s). We will then draft an appropriate license
agreement and determine a price. Once the terms are agreed upon the
images will be sent via CD/email/internet along with an invoice.
Payments can also be made using major credit cards.
Exclusivity: Photo Usage Licenses
An Exclusive license provides the buyer/licensee with an assurance that
the same image will not be licensed to any third party for the duration
of the agreement.
A Non-Exclusive license allows additional licenses of the same image to
be sold to other parties under separate agreements. This is the default
condition of sale.
Extent of Usage: One time use in a specified media or as an extended use
in a variety of media over a period of time.
One time Use License Agreements for Digital Images: Provides the
buyer/licensee with the right to use an image for any commercial,
personal, non-profit or editorial projects involving advertising, print
media, web site publication, or broadcast for a single instance. In this
case, the licensing agreement will specify the extent of the image's
usage - whether it will be printed in a newsletter, newspaper or
billboard - or shared on a website etc. Also included in the agreement
(and affecting the price of the license) will be the number of copies
being made (for print media) or duration that the image is to be posted
(for web media). Any additional printing runs or featuring of the images
on the web will require an additional license agreement.
Extended Use License Agreements for Digital Images: It allows the usage
of the purchased image(s) in any commercial, personal, non-profit or
editorial projects involving advertising, print media, web site
publication, or broadcast for an extended period of time. Typically this
time period is one to five years, but can be longer. During this time,
the buyer/licensee is free to print, publish, distribute the purchased
image(s) without restriction in a variety of media - even simultaneously
- without need to procure additional licensing agreements. The only
restriction to this license other than a reasonable time limit is that
it is not transferrable to a third party. If one party purchases images
that a third party would like to use as well, the third party will have
to procure a separate license agreement.
Copyright and Credit: Implicit to any licensing agreement is the
buyer/license's agreement to credit the owner of the copyright (Rusty Firmin ®) whenever any image is used. No copyright or intellectual
property is transferred at any point to the buyer/licensee. When
possible, Rusty will appreciate photo credits to include not only his
name but a link to his web site: rusty-firmin.com.
Prints: Prints are sold "as is" and become the physical property of the
buyer post sale. The images borne by the prints, however, are still
protected by copyright and may not be altered or reproduced without
written approval from Rusty.
