Artist Agreement

  1. GRANT OF RIGHTS: The Artist hereby grants and assigns rights to the Publisher (BlankSpace Publications) to publish and market the image throughout the world, including North America, the United States and its territories and possessions, in any medium and in any media now known or hereafter devised, directly or through affiliate companies at retail prices to be determined by the Publisher.

  2. The Artist agrees that he/she will not, without the written permission of the Publisher, publish or permit to be published any material in book, magazine, pamphlet or newspaper form, based upon the material in the Work, or which is reasonably likely to injure its exhibition and distribution through BlankSpace.

  3. The Artist declares that the Work is original and does not infringe upon any existing common law or statutory copyright or upon any common law right, proprietary right, civil right, or any other right whatsoever, and that no part thereof was taken from or based upon any other literary, dramatic or musical material.

  4. The Artist declares that the Image has not heretofore been published in any form.

  5. The Artist agrees to indemnify the Publisher against any claim, demand, action, suit or proceeding, recovery or expense of any nature whatsoever arising from any claims or infringement of copyright or proprietary right, or claims of libel, unlawfulness or invasion of privacy or based upon or arising out of any matter or thing contained in the Image, or any breach of warranties or representations herein contained.

  6. The Artist authorizes the Publisher at the cost and expense of the Publisher to make the Artist a co-plaintiff with Publisher in any litigation against a third party for infringement of the copyright on the Image, but the Publisher shall not be liable to the Artist for its failure to take such action.

  7. BlankSpace Publications has the sole right of distribution for the image, with the exception of (a) predetermined promotion by the Artist in situ or through social media, or (b) a predetermined supplemental agreement negotiated by the Artist and Publisher.
