III. OWNERSHIP OF MATERIALS
Title to all Photographs remains the property of the Photographer.
The Licence to Use comes into effect from the date of payment of the relevant invoice(s). No use may be made of the Photographs before payment in full of the relevant invoice(s) without the Photographer's express permission. Any permission which may be given for prior use will automatically be revoked if full payment is not made by the due date or if the Client is put into receivership or liquidation. Where use is restricted in the Agreement, permission to use the Photographs for other purposes will normally be granted upon payment of a further fee, to be mutually agreed (and paid in full) before such further use. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, all further Licences in respect of the Photographs will be subject to these terms and conditions. The Photographer retains the right in all cases to use the Photographs in any manner at any time and in any part of the world for the purposes of advertising or otherwise promoting his work, including entering the images into the Photographer’s collection for potential sublicense and publication worldwide.
If granted exclusivity, the licensee will be authorised to publish the Photographs to the exclusion of all other persons including the Photographer. However, the Photographer retains the right in all cases to use the Photographs in any manner at any time and in any part of the world for the purposes of self-promotion.
The Client agrees to indemnify the Photographer against all expenses, damages, claims and legal costs arising out of any failure by the Client to obtain any clearances for which he was responsible in respect of Third Party copyright works, trademarks, designs or other intellectual property.
Payment by the Client will be expected upon receipt of the relevant invoice. If the invoice is not paid, in full, within 30 days the Photographer reserves the right to charge interest at the rate prescribed by the Late Payment of Commercial Debt (Interest) Act 1998 from the date payment was due until the date payment is made.
Where extra expenses or time are incurred by the Photographer as a result of alterations to the original brief by the Client, or otherwise at their request, the Client shall give approval to and be liable to pay such extra expenses or fees at the Photographer's normal rate to the Photographer in addition to the expenses having been agreed or estimated.
