PHOTO LICENSE AGREEMENT
(the “Agreement”)

By purchasing an image (or images) on the Farm Stock Images website, you agree that you are receiving a limited license to use the image(s) that you have purchased. This Agreement, which you must agree to in order to make purchase images from Farm Stock Images, shows the rights that you have, and don’t have, when you purchase from Farm Stock Images.

Ownership

You recognize that you are not the owner of the image(s) you have purchased. In fact, even Farm Stock Images is not the owner. Farm Stock Images has a license from the owner (the “Artist”) which allows Farm Stock Images to license you the image(s), for the limited purposes set out below. In addition, the Artist has not waived their “moral rights” to the image, so, as you see below, you cannot use the image in a demeaning or derogatory manner.

 License

By purchasing the image(s) from the Farm Stock Images website, you recognize that you are getting a limited license to use the image(s). The limited license is a non-transferrable, non-sublicensable, perpetual license to use the image(s), for your own, or for your business purposes. To simplify things, we have provided you with some information on what you can do with your licensed image:

What can I do?

What am I not allowed to do?

Legal Wording - Non-permitted Uses

You agree that you shall not exercise any of the rights granted to a copyright owner (in this case, the Artist) under the Copyright Act (Canada), except those uses expressly licensed or authorized by this Agreement. If you want to use the image(s) for a purpose other than as permitted under this Agreement, you need to obtain a separate license from the Artist, permitting such use at a fee to be negotiated.
