Photographic Licence Agreement

Template: Photographic Licence Agreement

Introduction to licence agreement  templates

What Net Lawman says about this template:

"This is a straight forward contract that allows you to transfer the intellectual property rights in your photos or videos (or a portfolio of work) to some other person or organisation. That third party may then use the work as he, she or it wishes.

For example, you may wish to allow use of an animation by a television or film production company, or maybe a photograph montage by a website owner. They, in turn, may wish to sublicense to similar organisations (such as their product distributors) in other countries.

This agreement talks of photos. It could, however, be adapted easily for any other copyright product, particularly one that is digital in nature, such as an illustration, video or moving pictures, or a sketch.

This document assumes that the licence is forever (effectively a sale). However, the agreement also sets out basic terms of any sublicence and strong terms to protect your interest. These help make sure that if the work is sold again, you retain some control of it.

The result is that you may not interfere with the licensee’s use of the photos or videos but your origination and your ownership (your moral rights) must always be acknowledged by them. Your reputation as a photographer, videographer or artist will be maintained.

The financial arrangement is a simple one-off cash transaction."
