Artwork Contract

The contract below is for small art projects.
That is why the prices are so reasonable and inexpensive.
The artist does not require royalty for personal or business use,
meaning that for general business purposes the work is yours upon payment.

However, if you plan on generating an income from this work,
royalty is demanded regardless of any work-made-for-hire state.
In other words, money-making endeavors are subject to examination.


**********

As a "General Rule," the artwork will require
from 1 to 3 hours of labor,
or $50 to $150 in payments.
Any longer labor will be discussed on a "case by case basis."

WHEREAS ____________________________________________hereinafter to be referred to as the CUSTOMER, desires original artwork for personal or business reasons, or for political reasons, on a small scale; and,

WHEREAS any artwork produced via this agreement shall be referred to as the WORKS; and,

WHEREAS Mr. J.V. Presogna, hereinafter to be referred to as the ARTIST, will provide artistic services to produce such WORKS desired by the CUSTOMER.

NOW, THEREFORE, the CUSTOMER and the ARTIST agree to the terms set forth below concerning this agreement and the production of WORKS.


TERMS OF THE AGREEMENT


Definitions

1. Personal Use: No royalty is due on personal use, defined as any use for the desktop computer, or the home, for the individual person.

2. Business Use: No royalty is due for any business use, defined as letterheads, logos, or office use for a business.

3. General Use: No royalty is due for any general use, personal or business, which does not make reproductions or generate income from the artwork itself.

4. All Other Uses: A royalty of 5% of the gross income will be charged for any reproductive use of the artwork which generates income on the artwork itself, including but not limited to future contracts by the CUSTOMER with any other person or business, mass marketing or reproductions, public displays where admissions are charged, or derivative works explicitly generated from the original WORKS produced via this agreement.


General Terms

1. The RATE OF PAYMENT to be made to the ARTIST by the CUSTOMER shall be stated herein as $50/hour, plus expenses, of which an estimated 50% must be paid by the CUSTOMER to the ARTIST before any work begins on production.

A) The balance of what is owed by the CUSTOMER must be paid in full to the ARTIST upon completion of the WORKS.

B) All rights and ownership to the WORKS are retained by the ARTIST in the event that the balance is not paid by the CUSTOMER.

2. In the event that the WORKS, or any single one of the WORKS, are used only for stationary and/or envelopes, or for general use, no royalty payments are due to the ARTIST by the CUSTOMER, whereas this would be considered personal use, owned by the person, or business use as a trademark or logo or letterhead.

3. All other use in any form of the WORKS requires a payment of royalty to the ARTIST by the CUSTOMER if the WORKS generate a monetary income for the CUSTOMER, and this royalty shall be stated as 5% of the gross income.

A) "All other uses" includes future contracts by the CUSTOMER with any other person or business, mass marketing or reproductions, public displays where admissions are charged, or derivative works explicitly generated from the original WORKS produced via this agreement; and, the royalty of 5% shall be paid to the ARTIST by the CUSTOMER.

I) Examples of paragraph 3(A) above also include the distribution of political posters, or the selling of political materials, to raise money, which would amount to a campaign contribution by the ARTIST to the CUSTOMER, and therefore would require a 5% royalty paid to the ARTIST by the CUSTOMER.

II) Any type of future contract the CUSTOMER may have with any party in the context of not making any money will be judged on what the charges would have been to have such things produced.

III) The ARTIST assumes personal or business use unless otherwise detected, and would not charge any royalty for personal or business use by the CUSTOMER where the CUSTOMER is not making an income from any general use of the WORKS.


4. Upon final payment for the WORKS by the CUSTOMER to the ARTIST, the CUSTOMER shall have exclusive rights and ownership of all WORKS, including copyright, trademark and marketing, and all control of future use, and shall consider the duration of this agreement to be the length of the copyright itself, the ARTIST's life plus 70 years.
