1. Grant of License and Payment

If you are entering into this agreement on behalf of your employer, the license granted and restrictions and limitations recited herein apply to your employer, and to you as a representative of your employer.

You agree not to reproduce or use the Works in any manner including but not limited to layouts, hard copies, or digitalization until you first negotiate a use fee and pay our invoice for the uses you require.

No rights are granted until payment is made to SGD even though you have received an invoice. The Invoice/Copyright License we grant is only to you and cannot be assigned or transferred without our prior written consent. Your use of the Works is strictly limited to the parameters established on our Invoice/Copyright License under “Use Rights Granted”. Any use beyond those specified is a violation of U.S. copyright law. In the event Works from SGD are published, copied, or used in any way without first obtaining a proper Invoice/Copyright License for that use, SGD may seek damages against you. At its option, SGD may issue a retroactive use license for Works used without proper license in place prior to use. Retroactive use license fees will be assessed at a rate of up to ten times the normal use rate. Unless specifically stated under “Use Rights Granted”, licenses do not include any form of distribution of Works to third parties.

The Works are strictly limited to the specific use, medium, period of time, design project, territory and any other restrictions specified in our Invoice/Copyright License. The terms specified on the Invoice/Copyright License shall not be modified without the express written consent of SGD. Fees assessed for your use of the Works depends on the nature of the rights granted. You shall not undertake any expanded use of the Works without the prior written approval of SGD and the payment of any additional use fees required by SGD for such expanded use. You shall promptly notify SGD of any expanded use of the Works for which you have not received SGD’s prior approval, and shall pay to SGD any additional Use Fee required by SGD for such expanded use.

You may not re-sell, rent, loan, give, sublicense, or otherwise transfer to anyone the Works or the right to reproduce the Works (except insofar as it has been incorporated by you into one of the permitted uses outlined in the Invoice/Copyright License) and nothing you produce shall grant or purport to grant to any third party a right to reproduce or duplicate the Works. You agree to take all commercially reasonable steps to prevent third parties from reproducing, duplicating, or distributing the Works.

2. Overdue Invoices

Your use of the Works is predicated on the payment in full for the use of the Works. Should you use Works and not make full payment, you are in violation of U.S. copyright law and subject to penalties. In such a case, SGD reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to revoke the license if payment is not made in full, and may use all legal means to collect damages. Unless you pay by Credit Card, all invoices are payable net thirty (30) days. A finance charge of 1.5% per month will be applied on any balances unpaid after thirty (30) days.
