About this document
This is a straight forward contract that allows you to license the rights in your photos or videos to some other person or organisation. For example, you may wish to grant the licence to a television or film production company, or maybe a website owner. They, in turn, may wish to sub-license to similar organisations in other countries.
This agreement talks of photos. It could as easily be used for any other copyright product - a drawing, artwork, a sketch. But if your item is of high value, do use one of our fuller IP sale and licence agreements.
This document assumes that the licence is forever (effectively a sale). However, the agreement also sets out basic terms of any sub-licence and strong terms to protect your interest. The result is that you may not interfere with the licensee’s use of the photos or videos but your origination and your ownership must always be acknowledged by them. Your reputation as a photographer will be maintained.
You may be an individual or working through a company.
The financial arrangement is a simple cash transaction.
