Copyright License Agreement for Artwork
This copyright license agreement is between WILDSIDE GALLERY, a(n) Pennsylvania Corporation (the “Licensor”) and PURCHASER, an individual (the “Licensee”).
The Licensor has registered the following copyrightable work of authorship: photographic print (the ”
Artwork”), a copy of which is attached as Exhibit A.
The Licensee wants to obtain, and the Licensor has agreed to grant, a license authorizing the use of the
Artwork by the Licensee.
The parties therefore agree as follows:
1. GRANT OF LICENSE.
The Licensor hereby grants to the Licensee a nonexclusive, nontransferable license to exercise the
following rights in the Artwork, in all media (including electronic, print, video, audio, and any other
technology now known or that may be developed in the future):
(a) to distribute copies of, display publicly, or use in any advertising the Artwork.
The license granted in section 1 above is subject to and limited by the following restrictions:
(a) Limited Use. The permissions granted to the Licensee under this agreement apply only to the uses and
purposes stated and the Licensee may distribute, publicly display, or use in any advertising the Artwork
only under the terms of this agreement. The Licensee may not sublicense the Artwork. Any use that is
inconsistent with the limited license provided in this agreement will be a violation of the Licensor’s
copyright and subject to copyright law.
(b) No Modification. The Licensee may not modify, copy, distribute, display, reproduce, publish, license,
create derivative works from, sublicense, or transfer the Artwork obtained from the Licensor in any way
not specifically granted in section 1 above without the prior written consent of the Licensor.
(c) Limitations on Transfer. The permission hereby granted is not transferable, not exclusive, and
applies only to Artwork controlled by the Licensor and not to any artwork reproduced or incorporated by
the artist in the Artwork.
(d) No Other Work. The Licensor grants no other right or license to the Licensee, either express or
implied, with respect to any other copyright or other intellectual property right owned, possessed, or
licensed by the Licensor.
3. NO ASSIGNMENT OR TRANSFER.
The rights granted to the Licensee by this agreement are license rights only and nothing in this agreement
constitutes an assignment or exclusive license of the Licensor’s rights in the Artwork. The Licensor
retains ownership of the copyright in the Artwork, and all rights not expressly granted in this agreement.
4. CREDIT AND SAMPLES.
(a) Credit. The Licensee shall fully acknowledge in every copy of the Artwork distributed, publicly
displayed, or used in any advertising, either on the copyright page or as a footnote on the page on which
the Artwork begins, or, if in a periodical, on the first page in which it appears, the credit line as indicated
If the copyright and acknowledgment notices are not printed as specified, all permissions granted by this
agreement are canceled without further notice.
(b) Copies of Advertisements. The Licensee will submit to the Licensor two copies of any advertising
material that will accompany distribution of the Artwork.
On or before the date of publication by the Licensee of the Artwork the Licensee shall pay the
Licensor $499 quarterly in consideration for the rights of the Licensee in and to the Artwork granted
under this agreement.
6. MAINTENANCE OF RECORDS AND AUDIT RIGHTS.
(a) Books and Records. The Licensee shall keep accurate books of account and records covering all
transactions relating to or arising out of this agreement. The Licensor and its nominees, employees,
accountants, agents, and representatives:
(i) shall have reasonable access to these books and records during normal business hours on reasonable
(ii) may conduct an examination of all of those books and records.
The Licensee shall maintain these books and records in good order and condition for a period of two years
after the termination of this agreement under section 12 or, in the event of a dispute between the parties,
until that dispute is resolved, whichever date is latest. Receipt or acceptance by the Licensor of any sums
paid by the Licensee under this agreement does not preclude the Licensor from exercising its rights.
7. DELIVERY OF ARTWORK.
The Licensor will provide a color print of the Artwork from which the Licensee can produce the Artwork
for the purposes described in this agreement.
8. OWNERSHIP AND USE OF ARTWORK.
(a) Ownership of Artwork. The Licensee acknowledges that the Licensor is the owner of the Artwork
and of all associated federal registrations and pending registrations, and the Licensee shall do nothing
inconsistent with that ownership. The Licensee may not claim ownership rights to the Artwork, or any
derivative, compilation, sequel or series, or related work owned or used by the Licensor. Nothing in this
agreement gives the Licensee any interest in the Artwork other than the right to use them in accordance
with this agreement.
(b) Validity of Registrations. The Licensee admits the validity of all copyrights for the Artwork and all
associated registrations and acknowledges that all rights that might be acquired by the Licensee because
of its use of the Artwork shall inure to the sole benefit of the Licensor. This subsection does not entitle the
Licensor to any of the revenues from the Licensee’s permitted uses under this agreement, except for the
fees described in section 5 above.
(c) Limitation on Licensee’s Actions. The Licensee may not do anything inconsistent with the Licensor’s
ownership of the Artwork, claim adversely to the Licensor, or assist any third party in attempting to claim
adversely to the Licensor, with regards to that ownership. The Licensee may not challenge the Licensor’s
title to the Artwork, oppose any registration or re-registrations of the Artwork, or challenge the validity of
this agreement or the grants provided under it.

(a) Recordation of Agreement. The Licensor will, as soon as is reasonably possible following a request
from the Licensee, provide the Licensee with a complete copy of all documentation (in any format)
relating to the Artwork for the Licensee’s own use, to meet record-keeping requirements of the Licensee,
or to allow the Licensee to exercise its rights granted under this agreement. The Licensor will also, on
(i) execute any additional papers, including any separate licenses of the Artwork, reasonably necessary to

authorized representatives any information as to its use of the Artwork that the Licensor may reasonably

expense and option:
(a) obtain the right for the Licensee to continue to use the infringing Artwork;
(b) modify the infringing Artwork to eliminate that infringement (if practicable); or
(c) refund the amount paid under this agreement for the infringing Artwork to the Licensee, on such terms
as the parties may agree.
The Licensor shall have no other obligations or liability if infringement occurs, and shall have no other
obligation of indemnification relating to infringement. The Licensor shall not be liable for any costs or
expenses incurred without its prior written authorization and shall have no obligation of indemnification

and distributing of the reproduced Artwork. However, the Licensee may fill existing orders and sell off
existing copies of the reproduced Artwork then in stock if the sell-off period is no more than 1 months
from the date of termination. Any sales of reprinted Artwork will constitute Gross Sales. The Licensor
