conditions of use:
Sigh... This legal mumbo jumbo is very boring and makes my eyes glaze over, but they are necessary evils and good for clarifying our terms and conditions. We did try to keep them brief so please try to stay awake and read on...
A Design Fee is charged by Red Barn Artworks to redesign a photograph that is supplied by the client.* The fee covers the time spent redesigning a single photograph with special design techniques in which Red Barn Artworks will provide proofs for the clients’ approval. The fee is due prior to the work being performed. The designs created are then owned by Red Barn Artworks and cannot be reproduced by the client without written approval. Copyright use of certain custom images may be purchased by the client for marketing and special purposes. See Copyright Use Purchase below.
*Red Barn Artworks cannot redesign a copyrighted photograph without the permission of the original producer of that image.
copyright use purchase:
All original art work is innately copyrighted for use by the artist and falls under original art work. When a client purchases a product with an image designed by Red Barn Artworks on that product, the client is purchasing a copy of that image, not the image itself. The original image copyright still belongs to Red Barn Artworks. If a client would like to use an image repeatedly for marketing purposes, he/she may purchase the copyright use to certain agreed-upon images for $100 per image. Once purchased, Red Barn Artworks will send that image to the client electronically and as a hard copy without a copyright signature. This image can be used by the client for advertising purposes but the client cannot profit directly from reselling the same image. The same image is still available for Red Barn Artworks to create products for the client that paid the fees for the original custom work. All products Red Barn Artworks creates with the image for which copyright use was purchased, will have Red Barn Artworks signature information on them. It is agreed that Red Barn Artworks may not resell any image to the public for which the client purchased copyright use without that client’s permission. It is also agreed that any images for which the client purchased copyright use, may only be used for Red Barn Artworks' marketing purposes with the client’s permission.
