All photographs and rights not expressly granted in writing remain the exclusive property of the photographer and are limited to one-time use. Institute for Artist Management requests that a credit reading "© Artist’s Name/ INSTITUTE" appear adjacent to the media or on an obvious credits page or screen. Missing and/or incomplete credits are susceptible to additional charges. Notwithstanding the License, you may not: Sublicense, relicense, rent or lease any of the media; Copy or publish any of the media to a network or bulletin board, or otherwise distribute or allow any of the Photographic Media to be distributed to or used by anyone other than the authorised users, without prior written consent from The Story INSTITUTE; Use any media for any form of pornography, or in a libelous, defamatory, fraudulent, infringing, or otherwise illegal manner; Use any media to promote a business that sells or licenses photographic media, or otherwise competes with The Story INSTITUTE in any manner; Use media in a manner that implies endorsement of a product or service unless you request and receive a copy of a model release for all recognizable individuals and private property depicted in the media; or Ship, transfer or export any of the media into any country or use any of the Photographic Media in any manner prohibited by any export laws, restrictions or regulations.

In any event, the limit of liability of The Story INSTITUTE shall be the sum paid to it per the invoice for the use of the particular Image involved. You will hold The Story INSTITUTE and the artist harmless from all claims for the use of the Photographic Media, including defamatory use.

If any Image featuring a model is used in a manner that would lead a reasonable person to believe that the model personally uses or endorses a product or service, or if the depiction of the model is used in connection with a subject that would be unflattering, embarrassing or unduly controversial to a reasonable person, Licensee must accompany each such use with a statement that indicates that the person is a model and the Image is being used for illustrative purposes only.
