Who owns the copyright?

Unlimited Usage right

At PENCIL ONE,  we maintain ownership over the copyright. However, we grant worldwide, unlimited usage rights forever, in an unrestricted amount of mediums and alterations for advertising and promotional use of the company that made the order. This is the most complete use that can be granted, and it is included in the price.

Without owning the copyright, you would only be restricted from selling the copyright of the images to others and filing a formal lawsuit against those that use the images without permission for statutory damages.  

Purchase the Copyright

If you feel that you still want the copyright we can sell the copyright for an additional $20 per image. However, if you don’t plan on selling the copyright or filing a lawsuit against those using your image, it may not benefit you. It is highly unusual for a photographer to give away the copyright for free.

Non-Disclosure Agreement

However, if you are concerned about us sharing the images or using them to promote our studio, we are more than happy to agree to not to use them. We can sign a non-disclosure agreement for the images which will legally protect you.
