"Photographer" refers to Photo Shuttle. "Client" refers to the commissioning party or company named above, its representatives, successors, assigns, agents and affiliates.
B. Payment:
FULL PAYMENT MUST BE RECEIVED BY PHOTOGRAPHER PRIOR TO PUBLICATION. ANY USE PRIOR TO PAYMENT SHALL BE CONSIDERED AN UNAUTHORIZED USE. Client agrees that reasonable and stipulated amount which shall be paid by Client to Photographer for use prior to receipt of payment by Photographer shall be three (3) times Photographer's customary fee for such usage.
C. Grant of Rights:
Grant of reproduction rights hereunder is conditioned upon Client's written acceptance of each term set forth in this agreement, including but not limited to, receipt of payment in full by Photographer and placing of the required copyright notice on each use of Photographer's work. All rights not expressly licensed to Client in writing remain the exclusive property of Photographer. Unless otherwise stated above, duration of license is six times the periodicity of the publication or ninety (90) days which ever comes first.
D. Space Rates:
All usage is quoted as a minimum against space. Any additional space rate will be billed as such upon publication.
E. Return of Photographs, Destruction of Digital files & Return of Media:
Client assumes all risk for all photographic material supplied by Photographer from time of receipt by Client to time of actual receipt of photographs by Photographer. Client agrees to return all such material in undamaged, unaltered and unretouched condition within thirty (30) days of receipt, or if a License is granted, within three (3) months of receipt by client or by first publication date, whichever is sooner, or such other period as is stated in writing herein. Client agrees to destroy all digital files within one week of reproduction. If the files were sent on digital media, all such material must be returned in undamaged condition within thirty (30) days of receipt.
F. Film and Digital Media Holding Fees:
A holding fee of five dollars & fifty cents ($5.50) per item per day shall be payable from the return date until time of receipt by Photographer unless otherwise indicated.
G. Copyright Protection/Credit Line:
For Editorial use, credit line in the form "
Sonia Katchian/PhotoShuttle.com

Client acknowledges that, in an oversight in this matter, a triple fee is fair and reasonable for photographer's loss of recognition and lack of copyright protection resulting from lack of, or improper, copyright notice/credit line. For Non-Editorial use, Client will provide copyright protection by placing proper copyright notice on any use. Proper notice may be either " Client Name, Year-date of first publication", or " <> Sonia Katchian / PhotoShuttle.com" adjacent to or within the photograph(s).

I. Loss or Damage:
The parties acknowledge that it is difficult if not impossible to determine the exact value of each photograph subject to this agreement because of the duration of copyright protection and its present and potential value. Therefore, the parties have agreed that the reasonable value for loss or damage of each photograph is a sum no less than the amount indicated on the first page of this agreement. Client further acknowledges that its acceptance of this liquidated damage amount is a material consideration for photographer agreeing to deliver to Client the photographs subject to this agreement. In the event that Client infringes on Photographer's copyright in and to the works delivered herewith, then Photographer shall be entitled to obtain immediate injunctive relief to prevent further infringement and that Photographer shall not be required to post a bond to obtain injunctive relief, or if a bond is not waiveable, such bond shall not exceed $100.00. Photographer shall be entitled to recover the greater of Photographer's actual damages, or statutory damages in a sum not to exceed $20,000.00, in cases of non-willful infringement. In each instance, Photographer shall be entitled to recover reasonable attorneys' fees incurred and related costs in enforcing Photographer's rights under the United States Copyright Act, and under each federal or ancillary state law under which Photographer is awarded or granted damages.
J. Alterations:
Client will not make or permit any alterations, additions, or subtractions in respect of the photographs, including without limitation any digitalization or synthesizing of the photographs, alone or with any other material, by use of computer or other electronic means or any other method or means now or hereafter known.
