BEFORE you start making Cash from the collections, naturally we feel it very important to protect our own rights too. Unlike other image collections, all the Timecamera images have been painstakingly restored and enhanced for Print making and are unique to us.
Note the following Terms are kept short, concise and readily understood but are nevertheless based on Copyright Law in its entirety and under which Law the collections are fully protected. Interested parties may easily research Copyright Law in depth on-line should they wish:-
“By making a purchase of any Timecamera image collection which includes Print Selling Permission you are automatically granted an individual and non-transferable Licence within these Terms, i.e. ‘Permission’, along with use of the exclusive Master Image Files for making any number of individual physical ‘Prints’ (onto paper or any other printable surface) to keep or sell by way of retail or wholesale business.
Selling of the images by digital means for an end user to make prints from themselves is not permitted but they may be displayed on a web site for the purpose of advertising and for customers to order actual Prints from if they are displayed in a reduced size and resolution to avoid illicit copying by third parties.
Such Permission as above is not given if an item is stated to be for ‘Personal Use Only’ (which may occasionally be a stipulation with certain Free Bonuses). Being ‘free’ such elements are included as good will only and are not considered to have been ‘purchased’ as such along with its associated image collection.
By making an image collection purchase you are not granted transfer of ownership of any image copyright, which shall remain with Timecamera at all times as our proprietary product and accordingly you do not have permission to copy, re-sell, market, illegally distribute or otherwise mis-use the supplied media or individual digital image files in contravention of criminal and/or copyright law.
Neither, for your legal protection, may you grant use of the images to other persons and are not authorised to offer any form of ‘rights’ or ‘permissions’ in relation to the images to other parties.
Each of the unique Restorations is digitally encoded in binary, and has been date-registered at the Writers & Artists Guild Copyright Office. As substantially improved restorations and/or enhancements of antique or public domain originals they are thereby rendered unique to Timecamera (TM).
Copyright on both our restored images and/or our original scans of privately-owned source material where included, plus the DVDs or digital files remain the property of Timecamera (TM) and infringements have and will continue to be pursued under international law.
Note every endeavour is taken to ensure public domain status of images before we restore and enhance them and they are offered in good faith. However, we are happy to remove any image upon approach when it shown that copyright is still extant We recommend customers do the same and conduct their own copyright research on individual images before investing in commercial reproduction, particularly in relation to free gift/bonus items which are supplied on a personal use only basis.
Purchasers are entered into a database of permitted users and compliance of the Terms is monitored in the interests of all our business customers.
There is scope for healthy profits without negating our small return for extensive restoration work and we request co-operation in protecting both parties’ interests by reporting Copyright infringements.
