AnthologyBuilder Artists' Contract
This contract is made between AnthologyBuilder, hereinafter referred to as the Publisher, and You, hereinafter referred to as the Artist.
Grant of Rights
The Artist grants the Publisher the non-exclusive right to use each image (hereinafter referred to as the Work) that the Artist uploads to the AnthologyBuilder web site.
The Publisher is granted permission to print and distribute the Work on the covers of custom anthologies sold through the AnthologyBuilder web site and to display the Work as an electronic preview. The Publisher is granted the right to overlay text and text-associated effects (e.g. shadows, text boxes, publisher logo) on the image and to crop or resize the image if necessary, but may not otherwise alter the image in any way.
The Publisher may continue to sell the Work as long as it remains in the AnthologyBuilder database. The Artist may remove the Work from the AnthologyBuilder database at any time.
The Artist will retain copyright and all other rights to the Work, except as specified above.
Each time an anthology containing the Work is purchased through the AnthologyBuilder web site, the Artist will receive a royalty payment of $0.15.
Payments will be issued twice per year as long as the amount due the Artist is at least $20.00. If the amount due the Artist is less than $20.00, payment will be delayed until the total amount due reaches $20.00.
Duration of Contract
This contract shall be valid as long as the Work remains in the AnthologyBuilder database. Removal of the Work by either party shall constitute termination of this contract.
AnthologyBuilder reserves the right to remove the Work from the database at any time, for any reason. The Artist has this same right. If all Works are removed from the database, payment for all amounts due will be issued during the next pay period, even if the total amount is less than $20.00.
Warranty and Indemnity
The Artist warrants and represents that he/she has the right to grant the rights above; that these rights are free and clear; that the sale of the Work through AnthologyBuilder will not violate any copyright or any other right of a third party, nor be contrary to law. The Artist agrees to indemnify AnthologyBuilder for any loss, damage, or expense arising out of any sustained claim inconsistent with any of the above warranties and representations.
Applicable Law and Modifications
This Agreement shall be construed and interpreted according to the laws of the country of Germany in which AnthologyBuilder is based. Modifications to this contract will not be valid unless agreed to by both parties.
