Background of Agreement
This is a legal agreement between any member intending to upload data or materials onto the Site (in this agreement referred to as “you” or the “Supplier”) and iStockphoto LP (“iStockphoto”). If you are a corporation or other entity or a minor you may be subject to further filing requirements. The Supplier wishes to appoint iStockphoto as its non-exclusive agent to license, sublicense and distribute Content (as defined below) produced by the Supplier on the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement Upon accepting the terms of this Agreement, you may make Content available to iStockphoto by following the “Upload” procedures and policies identified on the relevant portion of the Site. Each upload of Content will be governed by the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
This is a fairly lengthy document, and it contains many important provisions that affect your rights and obligations. By ticking the correct box at the end of this Agreement and typing “I agree”, you are agreeing to be bound by the terms of this Agreement. We encourage you to print a copy of the Agreement for your records.
This Agreement remains in full force and effect until terminated in accordance with its terms. If at any time the terms and conditions of this Agreement are no longer acceptable to the Supplier, you must follow the termination procedures set forth below under “Term and Termination”.
Provision of Content
The parties acknowledge that the Supplier may, from time to time, provide information, software, photographs, illustrations, audio files, video files, animations, flash files, data files, code snippets and other material to iStockphoto using the Upload procedures of the Site or such other procedures as the parties may mutually agree (collectively, “Content”) together with other information, documents (such as model or property releases) or software relating to such Content or otherwise required to enable iStockphoto to realize the commercial potential of the rights granted in the Content ("Descriptive Information"). iStockphoto, in its sole discretion, may determine which of such Content is suitable for posting on the Site or other means of direct or indirect distribution, and only such Content as it deems suitable will be considered “Accepted Content” for the purposes of applicable provisions of this Agreement. Although iStockphoto may permit Content to be submitted pursuant to certain applications from time to time, your ability to submit further Content to the Site shall be subject to policies and procedures outlined in the Site and such applications.
In addition to the terms of this Agreement, the parties acknowledge that the provision of all Content is subject to the policies and procedures outlined in the Site and relevant applications, the terms of which are incorporated by reference into this Agreement. Any breach of the rules relating to Accepted Content outlined in the Site will be deemed to be a breach of this Agreement.
Grant of Authority
The Supplier hereby appoints iStockphoto as Supplier's non-exclusive distributor to sell, license, or sublicense Content to third parties worldwide and to collect and remit funds in connection with those endeavours on the terms set forth in this Agreement. For all Content, Supplier grants iStockphoto:
The worldwide right to market and sublicense the right to copy, use, reproduce, distribute, redistribute, sublicense, publish, republish, upload, post, transmit, broadcast, crop, modify, alter, create derivative works of, package, repackage, produce and sell prints or similar image products or publicly perform or display Content to prospective licensees in any and all media now in existence or that may in the future be introduced: (i) through the Site; or (ii) through other venues owned or operated by iStockphoto or its affiliates from time to time, and (iii) through Distribution Partners(defined in Section 3(c)) ; and
The right to grant perpetual, worldwide and non-exclusive licenses or sublicenses to end-users. iStockphoto and its Distribution Partners will determine the terms and conditions of all licenses of Content granted by them, but will not use or license Content for uses that are defamatory, pornographic or otherwise illegal.
In addition to the foregoing grant iStockphoto and its Distribution Partners may post, reproduce, modify, display, make derivative works or otherwise use any Accepted Content for their own business purposes relating to the promotion of the Site, the Content and their distribution programs, and promote the licensing of Accepted Content (including, without limitation, the use of the Accepted Content and the Supplier's registered and unregistered trademarks relating to Content for marketing, sales and promotional efforts whether on the Site or through third parties). No compensation shall be due to the Supplier for use of Accepted Content for such business purposes.
Accepted Content may be included in one or more current or future content collections (“Collections”) made available for licensing or distribution by iStockphoto or third party distributors (each a “Distribution Partner”). iStockphoto will determine the Collection and may subsequently move and license Accepted Content through a Collection on notice to you either through the Site or otherwise. For Content that moves into another Collection, the royalties paid to you shall be as set out in the Rate Schedule (defined below).
The Parties agree that all rights, including title and copyright, in and to the uploaded Accepted Content will be retained by the Supplier, and no title or copyright is transferred or granted in any way to iStockphoto or any third party except as provided in this Agreement.
iStockphoto or a Distribution Partner may offer license models through an application program interface (API) or other utility that will make Accepted Content available for use by clients on a high-volume basis. Accordingly, where appropriate, the amount due to you will be determined according to: (a) the ratio of the number of individual items of your Accepted Content to the total number of individual items of Content licensed together; or (b) in iStockphoto’s discretion, the relative value of your individual items of Accepted Content compared to all other content licensed together with it.
Intellectual Property Matters
The Supplier acknowledges that iStockphoto prohibits any Content or any other material that infringes
on any patent, trademark, copyright, trade secret, right to privacy, right to publicity, or any other
applicable law or proprietary right to be uploaded to the Site.
By uploading Content, you are warranting that you own all proprietary rights, including copyright, in and to the Content with full power to grant the rights contemplated in this Agreement. In addition, unless the Content is identified as ‘for editorial use’ in the manner and form prescribed by iStockphoto, to the extent that the Content contains images of people or persons, you represent and warrant that you have obtained as part of the Descriptive Information a valid and binding model release from all required parties in substantially the same form as model release that will permit the uses for such Content contemplated in this Agreement and that you will keep the original release and provide a copy to iStockphoto if requested. You also warrant that where required by applicable law, you have also obtained a valid and binding release in substantially the same form as [property release] relating to any identifiable property contained in the Content that might sensibly lead to the identity of or be required by the owner of such property to permit the broad uses, including commercial use, of Accepted Content by iStockphoto and its Distribution Partners’ customers. Where the Content is identified as ‘for editorial use’ the Supplier represents and warrants that the Content has not been manipulated, modified or processed in any manner that might distort the contextual integrity of the Content. For greater clarity, cropping and brightness/contrast corrections are permissible where the integrity of the Content has not been distorted.
The Supplier agrees that neither iStockphoto nor any of its directors, officers, employees, partners, affiliates or agents shall be liable for any damages, whether direct, indirect, consequential or incidental, arising out of the use of, or the inability to use any Content or Description Information, or any error, omission or other matter relating to a model or property release respecting Content or Descriptive Information.
Using the member name supplied by you, iStockphoto shall use commercially reasonable efforts to credit you as the source of Accepted Content, but shall have no liability for lack of credit. You acknowledge and accept and therefore waive any right to object to the fact that it is common business practice for commercial uses that the creator of Content is not credited, that Content may be modified, used in connection with sensitive topics and may be used or modified in ways that may be controversial or unflattering.
iStockphoto agrees to pay you royalties equal to a portion of the fees collected in respect of Accepted Content that is downloaded or otherwise purchased by end-users according to the rate schedule set forth on Appendix "A" to this Agreement, as it may be modified from time to time (the “Rate Schedule”). The parties acknowledge that the Rate Schedule may differentiate among various types of Content, such as still images, Flash files, video footage, and among the sites/Distribution Partners through which the Content is distributed or otherwise in accordance with its terms. The Rate Schedule is subject to change in the sole discretion of iStockphoto upon providing you 30 days notice by e-mail at the last address contained in your membership information and by posting such changes on the Site. If at any time the Rate Schedule is not acceptable to the Supplier, you may terminate this Agreement in accordance with its terms.
In response to a written request, iStockphoto will endeavor to make payment of royalties in respect of purchased downloads of Accepted Content on a monthly basis on or about the 15th day of the month following the purchase of Accepted Content, except when sales reporting from a Distribution Partner is delayed, in which case payments will be made in the month following the date such sale is reported, provided such fees aggregate a minimum of US$100, failing which royalties owing will be retained until they exceed such minimum. In all cases, payment of royalties to the Supplier will be net of: (i) applicable taxes or other withholdings required by applicable law; (ii) bad debts or other uncollectible sums; (iii) legal and other reasonable fees incurred in enforcing this Agreement or the agreements contemplated herein; (iv) cancellations or refund of a license where the original sale has been reported to you, including but not limited to where due to a fraudulent transaction; (v) overpayment of royalties in a prior period; and (vi) any amounts owing by the Supplier to iStockphoto under this Agreement or otherwise. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, iStockphoto is entitled to set-off against any amount owing to Supplier, all amounts to which iStockphoto is or may be entitled under this Agreement or otherwise at law, including withholding amounts as security for any pending or threatened claim relating to any matter which is the subject of a representation, warranty or indemnity of Supplier under this Agreement.
The parties further agree that iStockphoto shall not be required to pay royalties to the Supplier if iStockphoto is restrained or otherwise prevented from using rights granted under this Agreement relating to Content because those rights are found to be an infringement or contravention of the intellectual or other property rights of a third party.
In the event iStockphoto facilitates a sale or exclusive license of Content, iStockphoto shall be entitled to deduct a reasonable administration fee relating to such sale or license, in addition to its share of the revenue relating to such sale or license, which share shall be based on the royalty payable pursuant to the Rate Schedule at the time of the transaction.
You acknowledge and agree that you will be responsible for each and every access or use of the Upload
portions of the Site that occurs in conjunction with your Member Name and such passwords, and that
iStockphoto is authorized to accept your Member Name and password as conclusive evidence that you
wish to upload Content pursuant to this Agreement. iStockphoto shall have no liability or responsibility to
monitor the provision of Content under your member name and password.
iStockphoto has policies and processes which must be adhered to prior to Content being posted on the Site or otherwise being offered for sale or license. Notwithstanding that some qualitative standards are required to be met, iStockphoto does not and cannot review all Content uploaded to the Site and is not responsible for the content, quality, or consequences of your uploading such Content. Notwithstanding the foregoing, iStockphoto reserves the right to delete, move, refuse to accept or edit any Content or Descriptive Information that it may determine, in its sole discretion, violates or may violate this Agreement, the intellectual or proprietary rights of others, any of its policies or is otherwise unacceptable in its discretion, and you hereby agree to forfeit any fees payable in respect of such Content to iStockphoto or as it may direct. iStockphoto shall have the right but not the obligation to correct any errors or omissions in any Content or Descriptive Information, as it may determine in its sole discretion. You acknowledge that any screening of Content performed by iStockphoto to determine Accepted Content is done as a courtesy only.
NOTICE: You acknowledge that the Content you provide pursuant to this Agreement that becomes Accepted Content may be purchased or licensed by members with the intention that such licensees will adhere to the terms of the applicable license agreement. iStockphoto cannot take responsibility for the compliance by purchasers and licensees of the terms of such agreements, and you acknowledge and agree to the possibility of Content being used in a manner that is not contemplated in this Agreement. You also agree that notwithstanding any rights you may have to pursue the licensees of such Content at law, iStockphoto shall have no liability to you or any person claiming through you for any breach by a licensee of the terms of any agreement respecting Accepted Content. iStockphoto will use commercial efforts to assist in the protection of your intellectual property rights, at your request and expense.
The Supplier acknowledges that the Confidential Information (defined below) which it obtains
through the entering into of this Agreement, the use of the Site and the provision of Content
constitutes valuable, confidential, proprietary information of iStockphoto and its licensors,
and agrees that during the term of this Agreement and thereafter it shall not, without the
express written consent of iStockphoto, use or disclose to any other person any such Confidential
Information, except as specifically authorized under this Agreement.

in connection with your misconduct.
You agree to indemnify, defend and hold iStockphoto and its affiliates, and their respective directors, officers, employees, shareholders, agents and licensees of Content (collectively, the “iStockphoto Parties”) harmless from and against any and all claims, liability, losses, costs and expenses (including reasonable legal fees on a solicitor and client basis) incurred by any iStockphoto Party as a result of or in connection with: (i) any use or alleged use of the Site or provision of Content under your Member Name by any person, whether or not authorized by you; (ii) or resulting from any communication made or Content uploaded under your Member Name; (iii) any breach by you of this Agreement; or (iv) any claim threatened or asserted against any iStockphoto Party to the extent such claim is based upon a contention that any of the Content used within the scope of this Agreement infringes any copyrights, trade secrets, trademarks, right of privacy or publicity, or other intellectual property rights of any third party.

any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, and in such case, you agree to cooperate with
iStockphoto's defense of such claim.
The Supplier agrees that iStockphoto shall have the right to determine whether and to what extent to proceed against a licensee or other third party (an "Infringer") for any violation of a license agreement or alleged infringement of other rights of the Supplier. The Supplier hereby releases iStockphoto from any and all claims the Supplier might have, either directly or indirectly, arising out of or in connection with a determination by iStockphoto to proceed or not to proceed against any Infringer in any instance. iStockphoto hereby agrees that any monetary recovery it receives as a result of any legal or enforcement action taken against any such Infringer, to the extent such monies are intended to compensate iStockphoto for lost licensing fees or statutory damages, shall, after deduction of all costs and expenses incurred in gaining such recovery ( including, without limitation, reasonable counsel and experts' fees and disbursements on a solicitor and client basis) incurred by or on behalf of iStockphoto in connection with such action, be divided between the Supplier and iStockphoto pursuant to the provisions of the Compensation section above.
