Copyright is NOT transferred upon licensing of an image. When you pay, you are paying to use the image, not to own the image. George Coghill always retains copyrights and others can license the same image. Images are non-exclusive, which means that others may also download and use the same image for competitive or other purposes.
Images licensed are for the end user only, no additional parties. Anyone working on a project for the End User may have access to the image only for projects for the End User. Licenses are not transferable. A license must be purchased for each image and each end user. If you have multiple clients that want to use the same image, you must purchase a license for each client. You cannot use the same license for more than one client.
Once you license an image, the end user can use it forever, for multiple and permitted purposes, without having to pay any additional fees.
Images may not be copyrighted or trademarked. Images may not be used for logo-type purposes and cannot be copyrighted or trademarked by anyone but George Coghill.
If you are purchasing on behalf of a client, you MUST provide the client with a copy of the original receipt and this license so they have proof of a license to use the image.
Images may not be published on products for sale on any print-on-demand sites such as cafepress.com, polyvore.com, zazzle.com, redbubble.com, etsy.com, and other sites that may not be listed.
Images may not be distributed to other users via templates (e-cards, web design templates, scrapbooking templates, customizable invitation templates, customizable products, business card design templates, etc.) Each template user would need their own license.
Examples of acceptable uses are; t-shirts (restricted use on on-demand sites), blogs, email use, marketing, websites, calendars, brochures, computer backgrounds, business cards, products (other than on on-demand sites), apps, etc.
Examples of restricted uses; distributing the digital file for free or for a fee, selling on on-demand sites, using the images on customizable products (invitations, templates, etc), templates, distribution of digitized embroidery files, copyrighting or trademarking the images, rubber stamps.
You only need one license per image, per end user.
Legal Mumbo Jumbo:
George Coghill holds no responsibility from any legal issues that may arise from any use of the end user. The end user is responsible for any legal issues or costs resulting in their use.
The end-user is responsible for all liabilities regarding privacy issues, trademarks, slander, libel, etc., that may arise from the use of the image(s).
You are responsible for the end-use and any legal and/or any financial liability that may arise from such use.
You may not use any image found on this site for any illegal or fraudulent purpose. Some of our images may include sensitive issues such as abuse or drugs. These images are intended for personal use, or for prevention/discussion of the issues and can NOT be used to promote drugs or illegal activities.
Distribution of the image(s) must be as an end product. You may not distribute the image(s) on a network, CD, website, or any other means, for free or for charge. Only the copyright holder and/or agent for the copyright holder may license or re-license these images. Again, you must purchase a license for each end user. Example; if you have a layout site for business cards, brochures or layouts, you would need to purchase the license for each customer that chooses to use one of our images. You would also need a license for each image to even display them on your site.
You shall indemnify and defend George Coghill against all claims, liability, damages, costs and expenses, including reasonable legal fees and expenses, arising out of or related to a breach of this Agreement, the use or modification of any Image or combination of any Image with any other material, your failure to abide by any restriction regarding the use of an Image, or any claim by a third party related to the use of an Image, alone or in combination with any other material.
Images may contain copyrighted material or trademarks. You are responsible for seeking legal counsel for your use of the image(s). You accept responsibility for all liabilities that may arise from your use of the image(s).
