Standard Terms and Conditions
1. The artist retains ownership of full copyright of work produced and is free to sell further rights for its use unless otherwise agreed.
An individual may purchase rights to distribute at a later date, unless otherwise agreed, but the client retains copyright ownership of any concepts they have created.
If the client takes up additional rights, permission must first be obtained and a fee will be agreed at that time
2. The client is free to use imagery created in end products that are sold, but not re-sold on its own or as stock imagery or templates.
3. The artist asserts his moral right of paternity and integrity, therefore the client does not have the right to make any alteration to the work unless agreed with the artist.
4. The artist has the right to use the work for self-promotion.
5. Full payment will be made within 30 days of the date of invoice. Rights as agreed are not guaranteed until payment in full has been received by the artist.
6. The artist can only keep to the agreed delivery dates if any necessary reference material is supplied and the rough is passed without delay. The client is responsible for the clearance of copyright on any material supplied for use by the artist.
7. If the work is cancelled a proportion of the fee will be payable according to the amount of work done. If the work is rejected at rough stage the client will pay a third of the agreed artwork fee plus agreed expenses. If the finished artwork is rejected the fee is negotiable but it will not be less than half the agreed artwork fee, and if the artist has followed the brief correctly and the work is consistent with that already shown to the client the full fee is payable. If a rough rejection fee is paid the client has no right to use any part of the work and the rough remains the property of the artist.
8. All future dealings between the client and the artist shall be on these terms and conditions unless otherwise agreed.
