License & Ownership - Terms and Conditions
All works uploaded on the YasUli Art Platform are subject to the YasUli Art’s License, the terms of which are described below. All Users who receive a YasUli Art Item acknowledge and agree to accept or purchase the Item subject to the conditions of the License.
Ownership of a YasUli Art Item:
Owning a YasUli Art Item is similar to owning a piece of physical art. You own a Digital Artwork with a certification of origin representing the Artist’s creative Work as a piece of property, but you do not own the creative Work itself. Collectors may show off their ownership of collected YasUli Art Items by displaying and sharing the Underlying Artwork, but Collectors do not have any legal ownership, right, or title to any copyrights, trademarks, or other intellectual property rights to the underlying Artwork, excepting the limited license granted by these Terms to Underlying Artwork. The Artist reserves all exclusive copyrights to Artworks underlying YasUli Art Items uploaded by the Artist on the Platform, including but not limited to the right to reproduce, to prepare derivative works, to display, to perform, and to distribute the Artworks.
The Collector’s Limited License to a purchased Artwork:
Owning a YasUli Art Item is also different than owning a piece of physical art. Art on the YasUli Art Platform is digital, meaning that it is inherently easier to share, display, replicate, and distribute around cyberspace. In YasUli Art, we encourage Collectors to show off, promote, and share their collected Items, but the Collectors may not infringe on any of the exclusive rights of the copyright holder (i.e., the Artist). By uploading Items on the Platform, the artist affirmatively grants a limited, worldwide, non-assignable, non-sublicensable, royalty-free license to display the Artwork underlying YasUli Art Items legally owned and properly obtained by the Collector.
Collectors May Display the Artwork:
The Collector’s limited license to display the Work, or perform the Work in the case of audiovisual works, includes, but is not limited to, the right to display or perform the Work privately or publicly: (i) for the purpose of promoting or sharing the Collector’s purchase, ownership, or interest in the Work, for example, on social media platforms, blogs, digital galleries, or other Internet-based media platforms; (ii) for the purpose of sharing, promoting, discussing, or commenting on the Work; and (iii) within decentralized virtual environments, virtual worlds, virtual galleries, virtual museums, or other navigable and perceivable virtual environments, including simultaneous display of multiple copies of the Work within one or more virtual environments.
Collectors Shall Not Make Commercial Use of Artwork:
Collectors have the right to trade, transfer, or use their YasUli Art Items, but Collectors may not make “commercial use” of the underlying Work including, for example, by selling copies of Work, selling access to the Work, selling derivative works embodying the Work, or otherwise commercially exploiting the Work.
Other Restrictions on the Collector’s Limited License:
The Collector agrees that it may not, nor permit any third party, to do or attempt to do any of the foregoing without the Artist’s express prior written consent in each case: (i) modify, distort, mutilate, or perform any other modification to the Work which would be prejudicial to the Artist’s honor or reputation; (ii) use the Work to advertise, market, or sell any third party product or service; (iii) use the Work in connection with images, videos, or other forms of media that depict hatred, intolerance, violence, cruelty, or anything else that could reasonably be found to constitute hate speech or otherwise infringe upon the rights of others; (iv) incorporate the Work in movies, videos, video games, or any other forms of media for a commercial purpose, except to the limited extent that such use is expressly permitted by these Terms or solely for your Collector’s personal, non-commercial use; (v) sell, distribute for commercial gain, or otherwise commercialize merchandise that includes, contains, or consists of the Work; (vi) attempt to trademark, copyright, or otherwise acquire additional intellectual property rights in or to the Work; (vii) falsify, misrepresent, or conceal the authorship of the Work or the YasUli Art Item; or (viii) otherwise utilize the Work for the Collector’s or any third party’s commercial benefit.
The Limited License Belongs Only to the Current Owner of a YasUli Art Item:
The User agrees and acknowledges that the lawful ownership, possession, and title to a YasUli Art Item is a necessary and sufficient condition precedent to receive the limited license rights to the underlying Work provided by these Terms. Any subsequent transfer, dispossession, burning, or other relinquishment of a YasUli Art Item will immediately terminate the former Owner’s rights and interest in the license or YasUli Art Item as provided by these Terms.
The Artist’s Rights and Restrictions:
The Artist owns all legal right, title, and interest in all intellectual property rights to creative Works underlying YasUli Art Items uploaded by the Artist on the Platform, including but not limited to copyrights and trademarks. As the copyright owner, the Artist enjoys several exclusive rights to the Work, including the right to reproduce, the right to prepare derivative works, the right to distribute, and the right to display or perform the Art. Subject to, and in accordance with these Terms, the Artist hereby acknowledges, understands, and agrees that uploading a Work on the Platform constitutes an express and affirmative grant of the limited license rights to the Work to all subsequent Owners of the YasUli Art Item, as provided herein.
