This entry is just a little information page I will link to everyone from now on who decides to purchase art from me.
So if you don't plan on it, you can ignore this.
I own full copyright over all art pieces, payed or not, and I may use it in other places, dependant on if I need it or not, I will NEVER commercially use a purchased piece and would never resell it, I expect the same in return.
You have THE RIGHTS OF USE, meaning you can only USE it for decorative, non-commercial purposes (e.g display picture, youtube banner, headers etc..) on here or any other website. However, you do not have copyright to the piece, so you may not claim credit for the artwork. When using it, please credit me with a link to either my DA page, Twitter, or Youtube. You CANNOT re-upload it ANYWHERE UNLESS you ask me first.
YOU CANNOT USE THE PIECE(S) FOR COMMERCIAL PURPOSES BY ANY MEANS (e.g selling prints of my art, selling merchandise with my art printed on it) UNLESS you purchased a shirt design or something similar.
If you will be purchasing a piece of art from me, there are several rules you must follow, which are as follows, if you do not accept these rules, do not buy a piece from me. I own copyright to all of my art pieces uploaded here on DeviantArt and/or anywhere else they may be posted, improper use of these pieces is a breach of this copyright and is prohibited.
1. DO NOT alter the piece in anyway without permission from me.
2. DO NOT Trace, recolour, or draw over the piece.
3. DO NOT attempt to resell, or give the art piece(s) to anyone else, it is for you the purchaser, or the person you have gifted it to, and nobody else.
4. DO NOT use as part of a giveaway, or competition, art purchased from me is for personal and decorative use only, unless stated otherwise.
5. DO NOT repost or reupload any of my work on to any other art sharing website.
6. GIVE CREDIT wherever and whenever you use the piece(s), despite paying, I still require credit for my work when credit is due.
By allowing me to draw a character that belongs to you by commission, you GIVE ME FULL PERMISSION to reupload it on any site or display it anywhere I may choose.
TL;DR: You are the OWNER of the commissioned piece(s), you do not own the COPYRIGHT to the piece(s) you payed for, the only exception to this rule is for Logos, which you do own the copyright for.
Failure to comply with my terms will result in:
-Confiscation of your rights to use the artwork (no refund will be issued, and the artwork will be permanently removed from deviantart or any other websites) if the artwork is for you
-Reporting to staff on any affected websites
-Request of takedown of the artwork from any affected websites to staff
In severe cases, appropriate legal cation may be taken if my work is stolen and used for monetary gain.
