  05 Commissioner and Artist Rights

|A| As an artist, I retain full copyright to all images created. You as the client automatically get fixed usage rights, see 05|E|. Extended rights of use we define together in an official agreement, which requires the signature of both parties. Please contact me for this.

|B| I, as the artist, reserve the right to publish commissioned images in my galleries, reproduce the images for online sale or at events, or otherwise use the image commercially in e.g. prints, digital art collections, books, etc.

|C| The rights to the original figures remain with their owners, provided they are trademarked. They usually are not, so please let me know before you order if your character is trademarked.

|D| I, the artist, will never claim copyright for characters that I did not design alone and will credit the original creators when possible. Please clearly state the name to be given before the order if you explicitly wish to be named.

|E| As a client you receive the rights of use over it

  1. to publish commissioned images for personal and non-commercial purposes, as long as you clearly mention my name (e.g. @Calimdor).

  2. the right to reprint images in limited numbers for personal use. This includes printing for display at home e.g. as a poster or canvas, printing for use as a badge or a manageable number of stickers (less than 6).

  3. The right over cropping and resizing artwork for personal use (e.g. icons, avatars, banners). Please use my signature for the cropped artwork, if no longer visible.

|F| The client does not have the right

  1. to mass-produce the artwork and distribute it free of charge without an appropriate notice ( ex. @Calimdor ) on each piece. Please get a written permission from me if you want to distribute them in mass without my signature for free.

  2. give permission to printers or manufacturers to mass produce ( 5+) physical reproductions of the artwork.

  3. To use artwork commissioned from me for commercial purposes. Should you wish to do any of the above ( 2. or 3.), we must stipulate this in an official legal document, which we have negotiated and signed together beforehand, before the commission is issued. 

  4. Substantial changes directly in the artwork. Please write me if you wish to make such changes or want me to make such changes. See also 06. We can talk about it, I want you to be happy.

  5. to commission other people to edit my work, unless this has been agreed with me beforehand.
