1.7 "Reproduction" and "Reproduce" mean any form of copying or publication of the whole or a part of any Licensed Material, via any medium and by whatever means, the distortion, alteration, cropping or manipulation of the whole or any part of the Licensed Material, and the creation of any derivative work from, or that incorporates, the Licensed Material.
1.8 "Rights and Restrictions" means the information available to Licensee at the time of Licensed Material selection, either: (i) accompanying the Licensed Material on the Steve Thornton' website (including all areas of the purchase process); (ii) in a written quote issued by Steve Thornton; or (iii) in the editorial feed (if so delivered), and as might also be reflected in the Invoice. Such restrictions may include, without limitation, the permitted scope of use, duration of license, any territory or other use restrictions applicable to the Licensed Material selected, and the corresponding price for the license of such Licensed Material ("License Fee"). The Rights and Restrictions shall be incorporated into this Agreement and all references to the Agreement shall include the Rights and Restrictions.
2.1 Steve Thornton grants to Licensee a non-exclusive, non-sub licensable and non-assignable right to use and Reproduce the Licensed Material identified in the Invoice, solely to the extent explicitly stated in this Agreement. This right may be exercised by subcontractors of Licensee (including Purchaser) for preparation of the Licensee Work, provided that such subcontractors agree to abide by the terms of this Agreement.
2.2 Use of the Licensed Material is strictly limited to the use, medium, period of time, print run, placement, size of Licensed Material, territory and any other restrictions specified in the Rights and Restrictions. Licensee may utilize the Licensed Material in any production process as may be necessary for the intended use specified in the Rights and Restrictions, including as set forth in Section 2.1 above. Licensee may license and/or transfer ownership of any Licensee Work (but not any Licensed Material contained therein) as part of any distribution process as may be necessary or appropriate for the intended use specified in the Rights and Restrictions.
2.3 Unless additional rights are stipulated in the Rights and Restrictions or granted pursuant to a separate license agreement, Editorial Licensed Material may not be used for any commercial, promotional, endorsement, advertising or merchandising use. For clarification, in this Agreement use of Licensed Material in an "editorial" manner means use relating to events that are newsworthy or of public interest.

For clarification, this restriction on mobile use is not breached insofar as Licensed Material that is licensed for website use may also be capable of being viewed via mobile devices in a "pull" (as opposed to "push") fashion, provided it is not so specifically modified, reconfigured or repurposed for this purpose.
2.10 Unless otherwise specified in the Rights and Restrictions, Licensee may not, directly or indirectly, Reproduce the Licensee Work in any secondary Reproductions, such as compilations, screen shots, in-context promotions or on file-sharing or social networking website's such as YouTube, Facebook, MySpace, Bebo, etc. now known or any future incarnation of websites or other Internet use of it's type.
2.11 Licensed Material shall not be used contrary to the Rights and Restrictions.
2.12 Where Purchaser is licensing Licensed Material on behalf of a Licensee, Purchaser hereby represents and warrants that: (i) Purchaser is authorized to act as an agent on behalf of Licensee and has full power and authority to bind Licensee to this Agreement; and (ii) if Licensee subsequently disputes such power or authority, Purchaser shall be bound and liable for any failure of Licensee to comply with the terms of this Agreement. Nothing in this Section 2.12 shall serve to excuse Purchaser's obligation to make payment of the License Fee.
2.13 Licensee may not falsely represent, expressly or impliedly, that Licensee is the original creator of a visual work that derives a substantial part of its artistic components from the Licensed Material.
2.14 If the Rights and Restrictions include website use, Licensee shall post terms and conditions on its permitted websites that include restrictions on downloading the Licensed Material for other than personal use, and prohibit republication, retransmission, reproduction or other use of the Licensed Material.

Except as otherwise noted in Section 10, all Licensed Material used in an editorial context or commercial use must include the following credit line adjacent to the Licensed Material: "Image Copyright Steve Thornton" or as otherwise shown on the Steve Thornton website. If Licensee omits the credit, an additional fee in an amount up to five hundred percent (500%) of the License Fee may be payable by Licensee, at Steve Thornton's sole discretion. The foregoing fee shall be in addition to any other rights or remedies that Steve Thornton may have at law or in equity.

3.5 Notice of Violations. Licensee will immediately notify Steve Thornton if it becomes aware or suspects that any third party that has gained access to the Licensed Material through Licensee is wrongfully using the Licensed Material, in whole or in part, or is violating any of Steve Thornton' intellectual property rights, including, but not limited to, Marks and copyrights.
3.6 Any and all use requires photo credit. "Image Copyright Steve Thornton" OR "Image © Steve Thornton" is acceptable. If Licensee omits the credit, an additional fee in an amount up to five hundred percent (500%) of the License Fee may be payable by Licensee, at Steve Thornton's sole discretion. The foregoing fee shall be in addition to any other rights or remedies that Steve Thornton may have at law or in equity.
4.1 Steve Thornton will notify Licensee in the Rights and Restrictions if it has obtained a model release and/or a property release for Licensed Material. The warranty and indemnity set forth in Sections 5.1(iv) and 6.1 below are only provided if and when such written notification is given. If no such notification is given, then no such model or property release has been obtained. No releases are generally obtained for Editorial Licensed Material. Licensee acknowledges that some jurisdictions provide legal protection against a person's image, likeness or property being used for commercial purposes when they have not provided a release. Irrespective of whether a model release has been obtained, Licensee shall be responsible for payment of any amounts that may be due under, and compliance with any other terms of, any applicable collective bargaining agreement(s) (such as Screen Actors Guild in the US) as a result of Licensee's use of the Licensed Material.
4.2 Except where Licensee is specifically notified that a model and/or property release has been obtained, Steve Thornton does not grant any right nor make any warranty with regard to the use of names, people, trademarks, trade dress, logos, registered, unregistered or copyrighted audio, designs or works of art or architecture depicted in any Licensed Material. Licensee shall be solely responsible for determining whether release(s) is/are required in connection with any proposed use of Licensed Material, and Licensee shall be responsible for obtaining such release(s).
4.3 If any Licensed Material featuring a model or property is used in connection with a subject that would be unflattering or controversial to a reasonable person (except for Editorial Material used in an editorial manner and ONLY with prior written consent from Steve Thornton), Licensee must accompany each such use with a statement that indicates that: (i) the Licensed Material is being used for illustrative purposes only; and (ii) any person depicted in the Licensed Material, if any, is a model.
5.1 Steve Thornton warrants that: (i) the Licensed Material will be free from defects in material and workmanship for thirty (30) days from delivery (Licensee's sole and exclusive remedy for a breach of this warranty being the replacement of the Licensed Material); (ii) it has all necessary rights and authority to enter into and perform this Agreement; (iii) Licensee's use of the Licensed Material in accordance with this Agreement and in the form delivered by Steve Thornton (i.e., excluding any modifications, overlays or re-focusing by Licensee) will not infringe on any copyrights or moral rights of any person or entity; and (iv) if a release is provided by Steve Thornton pursuant to Section 4.1, Licensee's use of the Licensed Material in the form delivered by Steve Thornton and in accordance with this Agreement will not, where a property release is provided, infringe on any trademark or other intellectual property right and/or will not, where a model release is provided, violate any right of privacy or right of publicity.
5.2 STEVE THORNTON DOES NOT MAKE ANY OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, REGARDING THE LICENSED MATERIAL OR ITS DELIVERY SYSTEMS, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. STEVE THORNTON SHALL NOT BE LIABLE TO LICENSEE OR ANY OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY FOR ANY PUNITIVE, SPECIAL, INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL OR OTHER SIMILAR DAMAGES, COSTS OR LOSSES ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT, EVEN IF Steve Thornton HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, COSTS OR LOSSES. NO ACTION, REGARDLESS OF FORM OR NATURE, ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT MAY BE BROUGHT BY OR ON BEHALF OF LICENSEE OR PURCHASER MORE THAN TWO (2) YEARS AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION FIRST AROSE. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT PERMIT THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR LIABILITY FOR CERTAIN CATEGORIES OF DAMAGES.
6.1 Provided Licensed Material is only used in accordance with this Agreement and Licensee is not otherwise in breach of this Agreement and as Licensee's sole and exclusive remedy for any breach of the representations and warranties set forth in Section 5.1(ii)-(iv) above, Steve Thornton shall, subject to the terms of Section 5.2 above and Section 6.3 below, defend, indemnify and hold harmless Licensee and its parent, subsidiaries and commonly owned or controlled affiliates and their respective officers, directors and employees from all damages, liabilities and expenses (including reasonable outside attorney fees), arising out of or connected with any actual lawsuit or legal proceeding alleging that Steve Thornton is in breach of its warranties set forth in Section 5.1(ii)-(iv) above. The foregoing states Steve Thornton' entire indemnification obligation under this Agreement.
6.2 Licensee shall, subject to the terms of Section 6.3 below, defend, indemnify and hold harmless Steve Thornton and its parent, subsidiaries and commonly owned or controlled affiliates and their respective officers, directors and employees from all damages, liabilities and expenses (including reasonable outside attorneys' fees), arising out of or as a result of claims by third parties relating to: (i) Licensee's use of any Licensed Material outside the scope of this Agreement; (ii) any other actual or alleged breach by Licensee of this Agreement; or (iii) Licensee's failure to obtain any required release.
6.3 The party seeking indemnification pursuant to this Section 6 shall promptly notify the other party of such claim. At indemnifying party's option, indemnifying party may assume the handling, settlement or defense of any claim or litigation, in which event indemnified party shall cooperate in the defense of any such claim or litigation as may be reasonably requested by indemnifying party. Indemnified party shall have the right to participate in such litigation, at its expense, through counsel selected by indemnified party. Indemnifying party will not be liable for legal fees and other costs incurred prior to the other party giving notice of the claim for which indemnity is sought and Steve Thornton shall not be liable for any losses arising from Licensee's failure to discontinue use pursuant to Section 11.4 below.
Licensee should examine all Licensed Material for possible defects (whether digital or otherwise) before sending any Licensed Material for Reproduction. Without prejudice to Section 5.1(i) above, Steve Thornton shall not be liable for any loss or damage suffered by Licensee or any third party, whether directly or indirectly, arising from any alleged or actual defect in any Licensed Material or its caption or in any way from its Reproduction.
If Licensee or Purchaser requests in writing to cancel this Agreement within 30 days of the date of receipt by Licensee or Purchaser of the Licensed Material, and such Licensed Material has not been used by Licensee, Steve Thornton may cancel this Agreement and issue a credit to Licensee's or Purchaser's account or credit card as follows: (i) with respect to non-footage Licensed Material only, an amount up to 100% of the License Fee may be credited if the request is received within 7 days of receipt of the Licensed Material; or (ii) an amount up to 50% of the License Fee may be credited if the request is received between 8 and 30 days of receipt of the Licensed Material (or any time within the first 30 days for footage); in each case an administration fee of $50 USD (or local currency variation) will be charged. No credits are available for any cancellation request received after 30 days from receipt of Licensed Material. Nothing in this Section 8 shall apply to research, lab, service, or subscription fees which shall be payable according to the terms stated on the Invoice and shall be non-refundable.
If Licensee fails to pay Steve Thornton's Invoice in full within the time specified in the Invoice, Steve Thornton may add a service charge of one-and-one-half percent (1.5%) per month, or such lesser amount as is allowed by law, on any unpaid balance until payment is received.
11.1 Unauthorized Use and Termination. Any use of Licensed Material in a manner not expressly authorized by this Agreement constitutes copyright infringement, entitling Steve Thornton to exercise all rights and remedies available to it under copyright laws around the world. Licensee shall be responsible for any damages resulting from any such copyright infringement, including any claims by a third party. In addition and without prejudice to Steve Thornton's other remedies under this Agreement, Steve Thornton reserves the right to charge and Licensee agrees to pay a fee equal to up to five (5) times Steve Thornton' standard license fee for the unauthorized use of the Licensed Material for each violation and for each image and/or clip. Steve Thornton reserves the right to terminate this Agreement in the event Licensee: (i) enters the Agreement after having received notice of unauthorized use from Steve Thornton relating to the Licensed Material; (ii) provides inaccurate information regarding its proposed use of the Licensed Material at the time of entering the Agreement; (iii) fails to pay the License Fee on the due date; or (iv) otherwise breaches the terms of this Agreement. Upon termination, Licensee must immediately (I) stop using the Licensed Material; and (II) destroy or, upon the request of Steve Thornton, return to Steve Thornton the Licensed Material and, in the case of termination by Steve Thornton for cause, the Licensee Work in the possession or control of Licensee.
11.2 Audit/Certificate of Compliance. Upon reasonable notice, Licensee shall provide sample copies of Reproductions containing Licensed Material to Steve Thornton. In addition, upon reasonable notice, Steve Thornton may, at its discretion, either through its own employees or through a third party, audit Licensee's records directly related to this Agreement and use of Licensed Material in order to verify compliance with the terms of this Agreement. If any such audit reveals an underpayment by Licensee to Steve Thornton of five percent (5%) or more of the amount Licensee should have paid for the time period that is the subject of the audit, in addition to paying Steve Thornton the amount of such underpayment, Licensee shall also reimburse Steve Thornton for the costs of conducting such audit. Where Steve Thornton reasonably believes that Licensed Material is being used outside of the scope of the license granted under this Agreement, Licensee shall, at Steve Thornton' request, provide a certificate of compliance signed by an officer of Licensee, in a form to be approved by Steve Thornton.
11.3 Electronic Storage. For all Licensed Material that Licensee takes delivery of in electronic form, Licensee must retain the copyright symbol, the name of Steve Thornton, the Licensed Material's identification number and any other information as may be embedded in the electronic file containing the original Licensed Material. Licensee may not make additional high-resolution copies of the Licensed Material and Licensee shall maintain a robust firewall and any other safeguards Licensee deems necessary to safeguard against unauthorized third-party access to the Licensed Material. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Licensee may make one (1) high-resolution backup copy of the Licensed Material for security purposes only.
11.4 Withdrawal. Upon notice from Steve Thornton, or upon Licensee's knowledge, that any Licensed Material is subject to a threatened, potential or actual claim of infringement of another's right for which Steve Thornton may be liable, Licensee must immediately and at its own expense: (i) stop using the Licensed Material; (ii) delete or remove the Licensed Material from its premises, computer systems and storage (electronic or physical); and (iii) ensure that its clients do likewise. Steve Thornton shall provide Licensee with comparable Licensed Material (which comparability will be determined by Steve Thornton in its reasonable commercial judgment) free of charge, but subject to the other terms and conditions of this Agreement.
11.5 Governing Law. This Agreement will be governed in all respects by the laws of the State of Georgia, U.S.A., without reference to its laws relating to conflicts of law. Any disputes arising from this Agreement or its enforceability shall be finally settled by binding arbitration under the Commercial Rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") or of the International Chamber of Commerce ("ICC") to be held in Marietta, Georgia, USA. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not govern this Agreement. The prevailing party shall be entitled to recover its reasonable legal costs relating to that aspect of its claim or defense on which it prevails, and any opposing costs awards shall be offset. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Steve Thornton shall have the right to commence and prosecute any legal or equitable action or proceeding before any court of competent jurisdiction to obtain injunctive or other relief against Licensee in the event that, in the opinion of Steve Thornton, such action is necessary or desirable.
11.6 Severability. If one or more of the provisions contained in the Agreement is found to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions shall not be affected. Such provisions shall be revised only to the extent necessary to make them enforceable.
11.7 Waiver. No action of either party, other than express written waiver, may be construed as a waiver of any provision of this Agreement. A delay on the part of either party in the exercise of its rights or remedies will not operate as a waiver of such rights or remedies, and a single or partial exercise by either party of any such rights or remedies will not preclude other or further exercise of that right or remedy. A waiver of a right or remedy on any one occasion will not be construed as a bar to or waiver of rights or remedies on any other occasion.
11.8 Entire Agreement. This Agreement is intended for business customers of Steve Thornton and contains all the terms of the license agreement. No terms or conditions may be added or deleted unless made in writing and either signed by an authorized representative of both parties or issued electronically by Steve Thornton and signed by an authorized representative of Licensee. In the event of any inconsistency between the terms contained herein and the terms contained on any purchase order sent by Licensee, the terms of this Agreement shall govern.
11.9 Taxes. All License Fees are exclusive of any applicable sales, use, withholding or other transactional taxes, which are the sole responsibility of Licensee or Purchaser (if any).
11.10 The licensing entity under this Agreement is Steve Thornton and shall be governed by the laws of the State of Georgia, USA.
THIS IS A LEGAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU ("LICENSEE") AND STEVE THORNTON. THIS AGREEMENT APPLIES TO LICENSES ISSUED VIA THE WEB OR E-MAIL, AND IS APPLICABLE TO ONLINE, DIGITAL AND ANALOGUE (PHYSICAL) DELIVERY OF LICENSED MATERIAL (THE "AGREEMENT").
Steve Thornton grants to you, for a period of thirty (30) days, a non-exclusive, non-sub licensable, non-transferable and non-assignable right to use the image and/or film preview file you have selected and any derivatives or copies (collectively, the "Licensed Material"), on your personal computer and, in the case of film, in any test, sample, comp or rough cut evaluation materials. The Licensed Material may only be used in materials for personal, noncommercial use and test or sample use, including comps and layouts.
2.1 The Licensed Material may not be used in any final materials distributed inside of your company or any materials distributed outside of your company or to the public, including, but not limited to, advertising and marketing materials or in any online or other electronic distribution system (except that you may transmit comps digitally or electronically to your clients for their review) and may not be distributed, sublicensed or made available for use or distribution separately or individually and no rights may be granted to the Licensed Material.
2.2 One copy of the Licensed Material may be made for backup purposes only but may only be used if the original Licensed Material becomes defective, destroyed or otherwise irretrievably lost. Except as specifically provided in this Agreement, the Licensed Material may not be shared or copied for example by including it in a disc library, image storage jukebox, network configuration or other similar arrangement. Use which would be defamatory, pornographic or otherwise unlawful is prohibited. If Licensed Material featuring a person is used (i) in a manner that implies endorsement, use of or a connection to a product or service by that model; or (ii) in connection with a potentially unflattering or controversial subject, you must print a statement that indicates that the person is a model and is used for illustrative purposes only and this use MUST receive a separate and specific written authorization from Steve Thornton prior to any use, including test, sample, comp or rough cut use.
For rights-managed still Licensed Material only, if at the end of 30 days you have not licensed the Licensed Material for end use in a final project, you will be invoiced a comp service fee in the amount of one hundred fifty dollars ($150) USD or such other local currency amount as Steve Thornton may apply from time to time. If, at any time within the 30-day comp license period, you license such rights-managed still Licensed Material for end use in a final project and do not subsequently cancel the license, the comp service fee will not be charged. Payment of the comp service fee relates solely to comping use during the 30-day comp license period and does not entitle you to make any additional use of the Licensed Material either before or after expiry of the 30 days.
Upon download of any film Licensed Material, you will be invoiced a non-refundable access service fee of one hundred fifty dollars ($150) USD or such other local currency amount as Steve Thornton may apply from time to time.
If you are unsure of your usage rights under this Agreement or wish to use the Licensed Material in a manner not permitted by this Agreement (for example: online or as part of an advertisement or product), please contact Steve Thornton at his office.
Steve Thornton warrants the digital copy of the Licensed Material in the form downloaded by you to be free from defects in material and workmanship for 30 days from delivery. The sole and exclusive remedy for a breach of the foregoing warranty is the replacement of the digital copy of the Licensed Material. Steve Thornton MAKES NO OTHER WARRANTY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. Some states or jurisdictions do not permit the exclusion of implied warranties, and you may have other rights which may vary from state to state and jurisdiction to jurisdiction. STEVE THORNTON SHALL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY FOR ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, DIRECT, INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL OR OTHER DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THIS LICENSE OR OTHERWISE.
All rights to the Licensed Material are owned by Steve Thornton and are protected by United States copyright laws, international treaty provisions and other applicable laws. Steve Thornton retain all rights not expressly granted by this Agreement. The license contained in this Agreement will terminate automatically without notice from Steve Thornton upon expiry of the 30-day comp license period or, if sooner, upon you failing to comply with any provision of this Agreement. Upon termination, you must immediately stop using the Licensed Material and either destroy any digital Licensed Material or return the Licensed Material and all copies to Steve Thornton.
