Thread: Royalty-free licence

  1. #1

    Default Royalty-free licence

    Hi all.
    I have been approached by a hotel who want to use one of my photos to print and put on some of the bedroom walls. I have given them a price and I am just waiting for them to come back to me. Does anyone have a basic copy of a royalty-free licence agreement which I could get them to agree to if I am successful?
    The image has been used elsewhere and I need to retain the rights to use it elsewhere so I'm guessing that this kind of agreement is the way forward.
    Any advice would be appreciated.
    Thanks in anticipation
    Rob

    Hi Rob, I don't have any such agreement, I'm afraid, but if you are worried about them re-using your digital file, I guess an alternative option is to get them printed and mounted yourself and sell them ready framed? You may be able to work a bit more profit in that way...

    Unfortunately that's not an option as they are looking at buying 4 other images from other photographers. We all won various categories in a photography competition and they want to buy the rights to all 5 images so they can print them themselves.

    You might be better exploring a non-exclusive licence with a specified maximum number of copies which can be made. You might also want to think about a maximum term for the licence.

    Sounds good to me. Does anyone have an example of a non-exclusive licence?
