Permission to use my ART Creative Commons DONATIONS License
A Google search will lead you to find my art all over the internet, and though I LOVE for my art to be shared and seen, many take my art without asking for permission. Not everybody does that with ulterior motives but nevertheless my images are being used without due credit or link back to me. (thanks Peter for the suggestion to do this!)
I appreciate social media sharing using the share button where credits stay intact and you can see who originally shared the image (the copyright holder), it’s the irregular downloading, screen-shooting, cropping away watermarks, re-formatting etc. that is not only unethical, it is illegal-it is most important to remember that life at it’s best, is comprised of an even exchange of positive uplifting energy-“do unto others as you would have them do unto you“- is the basic premise of all spiritual beliefs, were we to always honor that in everything we do… well, you can imagine…: “what a wonderful world this would be!”
- This is NOT for a commercial enterprise this is for private and non-commercial use only!
- DO NOT remove the copyright statement (watermark)
- When you use the picture in your (private and non-commercial) blog, website, social network etc., you must please properly link to one of these: my website/Facebook page or OlivosARTstudiostore.com **(please notify me when you do post as I love to share with my Google + twitter and Facebook followers- which can also give you more exposure).
- NO selling or reproducing of my art under any circumstances (pleaseee!! this is how I make my living, this is stealing. I will gladly work with you to make an image available for a limited copyright purchase (eg: one time use of an existing image for 500 wedding invitations can run as low as $25.-) , NO printing/distributing print knock offs, using on zazzle, cafe press etc.
You may choose the amount of your donation yourself. Let your conscience guide you. Is it worth a few bucks to you to know that I won’t hunt you down, I won’t file a copyright infringement complaint, I won’t send the Web-Gestapo after you and YOU won’t ruin YOUR reputation (who wants to be caught being a slime bag?) and everybody’s happy. Seriously, let’s all be nice!
If you need to use my image(s) in a COMMERCIAL project, ask me first -ALL RIGHTS RESERVED
Below is the donation button. Please leave me a message with the following information when you donate: your name and the url where you wish to use the image so that I don’t mistakenly accuse you of image theft later on. Thank you!
