What is a Licence
A licence is an agreement in which the copyright owner of a work agrees to let another party use the work for certain purposes.
Licensing at Cool Images
We offer 3 licence types to keep it simple. Unrestricted, Buyout and Transfer of Ownership & Copyright.
Unrestricted Licence (basic illustrations)
An unrestricted licence grants unlimited usage to a client without restricting usage by the illustrator. The illustrator retains ownership of the copyright and has the right to remarket the illustration to another client and use it for self-promotion.
Buyout Licence (book covers)
The buyout licence allows a client to have the same privileges as an unrestricted licence while prohibiting the illustrator from utilizing the image for another commercial purpose. Also the client cannot resell the illustration to another company, nor can the illustrator. The illustrator still retains the right of image ownership and may use the image for self-promotion.
Transfer of Ownership & Copyright (Logos)
We transfer all copyright and ownership free of charge. Upon completion of a copyright transfer a client assumes title and proprietorship of a Logo or illustration. The new owner may resell the logo/illustration, alter or create derivative images based on it, license the image, and transfer copyright. Unless otherwise agreed and arranged, Cool Images reserve the right to showcase the finished logo and associated designs in our portfolio, and in any number of online galleries & portfolio, as well as in printed literature including, but not limited to: books and magazines.
