BEFORE you start making Cash from the image collections (assuming you wish to make prints for sale) naturally we feel it very important to protect our own rights too. Unlike other image collections, all the PrintnSell images have been painstakingly restored and enhanced for Print making. They have been licensed for use from Collectaprint (the toys and models sheets) and Timecamera (the restored images for print making) and all are unique versions.
"By making a purchase from us of any image collection which includes 'Print Selling Permission' you are automatically granted an individual strictly non-transferable Licence, i.e. 'Permission', along with use of the exclusive Master Image Files for personally making an Unlimited Number of individual physical 'PRINTS' (which may be on paper or any other printable surface) to either keep, sell or distribute by way of business.
Selling or distribution of any image by digital means for an end user to make prints from is not permitted but they may be displayed on a personal web site for the purpose of advertising and for customers to order Prints and made up models from if they are displayed in a substantially reduced size and resolution to avoid illicit copying.
If such Permission as above is not included in the purchase i.e. it is sold for 'Personal Use Only' no commercial usage is allowed and would be considered a breach of copyright. Compliance is monitored in the interests of our business customers.
By making a purchase you are not granted transfer of ownership of any image copyright, which shall remain with us and the licensors at all times as our proprietary product and accordingly you do not have permission to copy, re-sell, market, illegally distribute or otherwise mis-use the CDs/DVDs/Downloads or the individual digital image files in contravention of criminal and/or copyright law. Neither, for your legal protection, may you grant access to the discs or files to any third parties. Also please note you are not authorised to provide any form of 'rights' or 'permissions' in relation to the images to any other person, or to an agent acting on your behalf.
Each of the unique Restorations is digitally encoded in binary, and has been date-registered at the Writers & Artists Guild Copyright Office. As substantially improved restorations and/or enhancements of antique or public domain originals they are each unique. Copyright on both the restored images and/or the original scans of privately-owned source material where included, plus the DVDs and download files, remain the property of PrintnSell and infringements have and will continue to be pursued under international law.
Note every endeavour is taken to ensure public domain status of images before they are restored and enhanced and they are offered in good faith. However, we are happy to remove any image upon approach when it shown that copyright is still extant. We recommend customers do the same and conduct their own copyright research on individual images before investing in commercial reproduction, particularly in relation to free gift/bonus items, which are supplied on a personal use only basis.
There is wide scope to make healthy profits without negating our small return for extensive restoration work and we request the co-operation of purchasers in protecting both parties' interests by reporting Copyright infringements.
