Licensing

THE SERIOUS LEGAL STUFF

With this transaction Buyer acknowledges that the purchase comes with a non-exclusive limited use license so that the Purchaser may use the image for personal or professional use in the normal course of Purchaser’s business.

Purchaser may crop the image and overlay the image with text or pdfs of product designs as fits Purchaser’s needs, but Purchaser may not otherwise alter, edit or manipulate the image.

50 Shades of Black Stock remains the sole and exclusive owner and holder of the copyright in the image and the Purchaser may not sell, lease, loan, transfer, assign, or give away the image or a derivative thereof or otherwise allow a third-party to use the image in any way.

The Purchaser may not use 50 Shades of Black Stock images to promote styling related workshops, webinars, classes, how-to-style blog posts or newsletters, or any styling related training.

NOW, IN PLAIN ENGLISH

These images have been designed to become a part of your branding just like a logo or font choice.

As an entrepreneur/online influencer, you know how frustrating and discouraging it can be when people misuse, steal, giveaway or alter your work. With that in mind, please don’t change the colors or move the props around – it just doesn’t look as good (and infringes on the usage terms)!

Feel free to crop the image any way that you want and overlay it with text or designs to help you to promote your brand and sell more products!

You can use the images (or part of the image) to create opt-ins such as checklists, workbooks, pdfs, ebooks, as long as the images are flatted and overlaid with text or graphics and cannot be extracted, so long as the image is not a main component of the download.

It would also be just plain wrong to re-sell the image in any form such as turning it into an art print or including it in a website or other template design.

Lastly, using a 50 Shades of Black Stock image to sell your styling course, webinar or other styling related training is sort of false advertising. Show them the styling that YOU have done so that they know exactly what they are in for and can get excited!  This is not meant to scare you.

If you have any questions or concerns about the legal use of our images please don’t hesitate to shoot us an e-mail! We don’t bite!
