Use of Site & Copyright
We would have liked to do business without the formality of an agreement but our lawyers have insisted. Of course visiting and viewing the Room4art.com™ site is free. But when you buy on the Room4art.com™ web site you will have to agree to the Terms and Conditions, which will apply every time you use the Room4art.com™ services, so please read them carefully.
Please be aware that from time to time, links may appear on our web site to other web sites run by other people or companies. It is the case that we cannot be held responsible to you for the actions of anyone other than the acts or omissions of ourselves at Room4art.com™.
Room4art.com™ believes that artists should be fully and fairly rewarded for their creations
All work displayed on the Room4art.com™ website is subject to copyright, as are the images of those works.
The sale of any item of work does not include any intellectual property right relating to it. All copyright and other rights shall remain with the artist or, after 70 years, other prior owners. You are buying the original not the right to produce prints for publication.
The images and designs used on the Room4art.com™ website are the property of 21st Century Gallery Ltd or of their respective copyright owners, and are used by Room4art.com™ with the authorisation of copyright owners or their agents. You acknowledge that all copyright, trademarks and other intellectual property rights in and relating to Room4art.com™ are vested in 21st Century Gallery Ltd or the artists or our partners or our suppliers.
You must not use, reproduce, modify or distribute the images or any part of those images in any manner, except as they are emailed or printed from Room4art.com™. In the event that there is any dispute between us in relation to this issue, you agree that until the matter is resolved, an interim injunction will be an appropriate remedy. An interim injunction is a court order which would prevent any further use or distribution of the image concerned, until a final court hearing where the court will make a decision based on all the facts. And we would not enjoy that any more than you.
Specifically, we want to make it clear that the creation of a high-quality print is not allowed from the photographs that we use on this site. To ensure that any illicit digital reproductions can be identified, we reserve the right to digitally mark our photographs so that any tiny fragment as small as 2 pixels can be identified as a copy.
If you wish to use any of the photographs on our site, please apply for a Usage License by clicking here [Usage_License@room4art.com].
It will be a condition of the Usage License that the photograph is marked as ©Room4art.com™ and, if it is linked to our website we will issue a Usage License free-of-charge for a period and/or a purpose, or, where the photograph is not linked back to our website, we will charge a normal £200 commercial fee or £5 for non-commercial use.
In the event that we find unauthorised usage of our photography, we will issue a retrospective Usage License to cover the period of use of the photograph, upon receipt of our retrospective fee. Our fee for that retrospective license will be £50 if that photograph was used for non-commercial purposes, and £2000 if that photograph was used for commercial purposes. Future usage of the photograph will need to be bought at our current rates.
