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 Agency is put into receivership or liquidation. The Licence only applies to the advertiser and product as stated and its benefit shall not be assigned to any third party without Phil Cawley's permission. Accordingly, even where any form of 'all media' Licence is granted, Phil Cawley's permission must be obtained before any use of the Photographs for other purposes eg use in relation to another product or sublicensing through a photolibrary. Permission to use the Photographs for purposes outside the terms of the Licence will normally be granted upon payment of a further fee, which must 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 Agency and Advertiser will be authorised to publish the Photographs to the exclusion of all other persons including Phil Cawley. However, Phil Cawley 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. After the exclusivity period indicated in the Licence to Use Phil Cawley shall be entitled to use the Photographs for any purposes.
Phil Cawley will keep confidential and will not disclose to any third parties or make use of material or information communicated to him in confidence for the purposes of the photography, save as may be reasonably necessary to enable Phil Cawley to carry out his/her obligations in relation to the commission.
Phil Cawley agrees to indemnify the Agency and the Advertiser against all expenses, damages, claims and legal costs arising out of any failure by Phil Cawley to obtain any clearances for which he was responsible in respect of third party copyright works, trade marks, designs or other intellectual property. Phil Cawley shall only be responsible for obtaining such clearances if this has been expressly agreed before the shoot. In all other cases the Agency shall be responsible for obtaining such clearances and will indemnify Phil Cawley against all expenses, damages, claims and legal costs arising out of any failure to obtain such clearances.
Payment by the Agency will be expected for the commissioned work within 30 days of the issue of the relevant invoice.
