License Agreement

THIS CONTENT LICENSE AGREEMENT (THIS “AGREEMENT”) IS A LEGAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN LICENSEE AND B-ROLLSTOCK, LLC. (“B-ROLLSTOCK”). BY DOWNLOADING ANY LICENSED CONTENT, LICENSEE IS CONFIRMING THAT LICENSEE HAS THE CAPACITY TO FORM A CONTRACT UNDER ITS LOCAL LAWS. 

In this Agreement the following definitions apply:

  1. “Editorial Licensed Content” means Licensed Content relating to events that are newsworthy or of public interest and identified as “Editorial”.  
  2. “Entity” means a corporation, partnership, limited liability company, association, trust, unincorporated organization, or other legal entity or organization, or a government body.
  3. “Licensed Content” means any still image, film or video footage, audio product, visual representation generated optically, electronically, digitally or by any other means, including any negatives, transparencies, film imprints, prints, original digital files, or any other product protected by copyright, patent, trademark, or other intellectual property right, which is licensed to Licensee by B-Rollstock under this Agreement. Any reference in this Agreement to the Licensed Content shall be to each individual item within the Licensed Content and also the Licensed Content as a whole.
  4. “Licensee” means the individual or Entity purchasing the license pursuant to the terms of this Agreement.
  5. “Released Parties” means collectively, with respect to B-Rollstock, its affiliates and subsidiaries, and their (including with respect to B-Rollstock) officers, directors, members, shareholders, partners, employees, agents, representatives, and/or licensors.

By downloading any Licensed Content Licensee agrees to the all the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Any individual and/or agent downloading any Licensed Content on behalf of an Entity represents and warrants that he/she/it (as applicable) has the full authority and power to bind such Entity to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. If such Entity subsequently disputes such power or authority, such individual and/or agent, as applicable, shall be liable for any failure of such Entity to comply with the terms and conditions of this Agreement. The foregoing does not in any way limit, diminish, or excuse the liability of such Entity hereunder.  

LICENSE TERMS

Upon Licensee’s acceptance of this Agreement and B-Rollstock’s receipt of the applicable fees, B-Rollstock grants Licensee a limited, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, non-transferable (except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement), revocable (in accordance with this Agreement) license to use the Licensed Content solely for the Permitted Uses (hereafter defined).

PERMITTED USES

Subject to any and all other prohibitions or restrictions in this Agreement, the permitted uses of the Licensed Content are as follows (subject to any such prohibitions or restrictions, the “Permitted Uses”):

  1. advertising and promotional projects, including those that are electronic or used on the worldwide web, film and video presentations, commercials, electronic catalogues and brochures;
  2. films, video, broadcast and theatrical presentations;
  3. on-line or electronic productions including web pages, podcasts and vidcasts; and
  4. non-profit, educational and internal corporate videos.

Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, Licensee may not use the Licensed Content in products for resale, license or other distribution, unless:

  1. the Licensed Content is being used as a part of a larger work, in which the Licensed Content itself does not account for 25% or more of the finished product; or
  2. the Licensed Content has been modified or transformed sufficiently so that it constitutes an original work entitling the producer to copyright protection under applicable law ("Permitted Derivative Work"), and the primary value of the Permitted Derivative Work is not recognizable as the Licensed Content itself. In order to qualify as a Permitted Derivative Work the Licensed Content contained in the derivative work, cannot be downloadable, extractable or accessible by a third party as a stand-alone file. Mere modification of the Licensed Content, and subsequent reproduction will not constitute a Permitted Derivative Work.

If there is any question whether a work is a Permitted Derivative Work or whether the use of the Licensed Content is a Permitted Use, please email support@b-rollstock.com. Any use of the Licensed Content that is not expressly permitted by this Agreement constitutes copyright infringement and is a breach of this Agreement, entitling B-Rollstock to exercise all rights and remedies available to it under copyright laws around the world (in addition to any other rights and remedies it may have).

PROHIBITED USES

Licensee may not do anything with the Licensed Content that (i) is not expressly permitted in the preceding section (without the express prior written agreement of B-Rollstock and the payment of additional fees) or (ii) in any manner that violates applicable law. By way of example and not limitation, the following are strictly prohibited and are deemed "Prohibited Uses":

  1. sale, resale or distribution of the Licensed Content for profit either as a single background, effect, piece of footage, sound effect file, composition, software project file or as a part of any background, effect, sound effect, or footage library collection, software project file, set or product;
  2. sale, resale or distribution of the Licensed Content as a part of another production where the Licensed Content, as determined in B-Rollstock’s sole discretion, comprises 25% or more of the finished product;
  3. incorporation of the Licensed Content in any product that results in a redistribution or reuse of the Licensed Content (such as templates) or is otherwise made available in such a way one could extract or access or reproduce the Licensed Content as a separate file;
  4. make the Licensed Content available in a manner intended to allow or invite a third party to download, extract, redistribute or access the Licensed Content as a standalone file;
  5. sub-licensing, reselling, renting, lending, assigning, gifting or otherwise transferring or distributing the Licensed Content or the rights granted under this Agreement;
  6. removal of any notice of copyright, trademark or other proprietary right from any place where it is on or embedded in the Licensed Content;
  7. installation and use of the Licensed Content in more than one location at a time or placing a copy of the Licensed Content on a network server or web server for use by others;
  8. use of the Licensed Content in a way which could be considered obscene, immoral, infringing, defamatory or libelous in nature, or that could be reasonably likely to bring any person or property reflected in the Licensed Content into disrepute;
  9. use of or display of the Licensed Content in an electronic format that enables it to be downloaded or distributed as the original stock media file via mobile devices or shared in any peer-to-peer or similar arrangement;
  10. breaking the Licensed Content into smaller pieces and selling these pieces as stock media;
  11. use of Licensed Content in customizable video ads for sale is prohibited (unless Licensee re-purchases the Licensed Content each time the ad is sold);
  12. incorporating any Licensed Content into a logo, corporate ID, trademark or service mark;
  13. unlawful use of the Licensed Content, whether directly or in context or juxtaposition with other material or subject matter;
  14. use of the Editorial Licensed Content in a manner prohibited in this Agreement or in an untruthful manner; and
  15. placing the Licensed Content behind a paywall intended to specifically limit access to the displayed Licensed Content.

SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS

If Licensee uses the Licensed Content on any social media platform or other third party website (in each case only as permitted by this Agreement), (i) the rights to such use shall automatically be revoked in the event that the third party website seeks to exploit purported rights to the Licensed Content contrary to the terms of this Agreement, and (ii) in such event, upon B-Rollstock’s request, Licensee shall immediately remove any Licensed Content from such platform or website.  

EDITORIAL LICENSED CONTENT

Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, Editorial Licensed Content may not be used for any commercial, promotional, endorsement, advertising or merchandising use. For clarification, use of Licensed Content in an “editorial” manner means use relating to events that are newsworthy or of public interest and expressly excludes any sections or supplements in relation to which Licensee receives a fee from a third party advertiser or sponsor. Editorial Licensed Content may be edited for technical quality, provided that the editorial integrity of the Licensed Content is not compromised, but shall not, under any circumstances, otherwise be altered.    

OWNERSHIP

No ownership or copyright in any Licensed Content shall pass to Licensee by the issuance of any license contained in this Agreement. Except as expressly stated in this Agreement, B-Rollstock grants Licensee no right or license, express or implied, to the Licensed Content.

TERM AND TERMINATION OF THIS AGREEMENT

This Agreement shall be effective for the full term of copyright with respect to the applicable Licensed Content. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, B-Rollstock may terminate this Agreement immediately upon notice to Licensee for any breach of this Agreement. Upon termination, Licensee shall immediately destroy or delete the Licensed Content and any Permitted Derivative Works, along with any copies or archives of it or accompanying materials (if applicable), and cease using the Licensed Content for any purpose.

REPLACEMENT OF LICENSED CONTENT

Upon notice from B-Rollstock that any Licensed Content may be subject to a claim of infringement of another’s right, B-Rollstock may require Licensee to immediately (and ensure any of its clients do the same) and at Licensee’s own expense: (i) stop using the Licensed Content (including without limitation in any Permitted Derivative Works); and (ii) delete or remove the Licensed Content from its premises, computer systems and storage (electronic or physical). B-Rollstock shall provide Licensee with comparable Licensed Content (as determined in B-Rollstock’s sole discretion). Such comparable Licensed Content shall be subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.    

Additionally, other than with respect to a claim of infringement as set forth above, B-Rollstock may, upon notice to Licensee (“Notice”), for any reason replace the Licensed Content with comparable Licensed Content (as determined in B-Rollstock’s sole discretion). Such comparable Licensed Content shall be subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. In the event of such replacement, the license for the replaced Licensed Content shall immediately terminate for any products and/or uses that do not already exist as of the date of such Notice, and Licensee shall take all reasonable steps to discontinue the use of such replaced Licensed Content in products that already exist.

LIMITATION OF WARRANTIES AND LIABILITY

B-Rollstock’s business is to operate as an exchange of content between producers of content and those who wish to use such content. B-Rollstock makes no warranties regarding the use of names, people, trademarks, trade dress, patented or copyrighted designs or works of art or architecture and/or any other forms of intellectual property contained in any content, including without limitation the Licensed Content, provided via the website operated by B-Rollstock (the “Site”).

THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE LICENSED CONTENT IS BORNE BY LICENSEE, AND LICENSEE ASSUMES THE ENTIRE RISK AND COST OF ALL CORRECTIONS IN CONNECTION THEREWITH.

3. NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING HEREIN TO THE CONTRARY, B-ROLLSTOCK’S AND/OR THE RELEASED PARTIES’ MAXIMUM AGGREGATE LIABILITY UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT AND/OR IN RESPECT OF THE USE OR EXPLOITATION OF ANY OR ALL OF THE SITE AND/OR THE LICENSED CONTENT IN ANY MANNER SHALL NOT EXCEED FIVE HUNDRED UNITED STATES DOLLARS (US$500.00). IN NO EVENT SHALL B-ROLLSTOCK AND/OR ANY OF THE RELEASED PARTIES BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY, AND/OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES WHATSOEVER (INCLUDING DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF BUSINESS INFORMATION, OR ANY OTHER PECUNIARY LOSS) IN CONNECTION WITH ANY CLAIM, LOSS, DAMAGE, ACTION, SUIT OR OTHER PROCEEDING ARISING UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE USE OF, RELIANCE UPON, ACCESS TO, OR EXPLOITATION OF THE SITE OR THE LICENSED CONTENT OR ANY PART THEREOF, EVEN IF ANY SUCH PARTIES HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

INDEMNITY

Licensee agrees to indemnify, defend and hold B-Rollstock and/or each of the Released Parties and/or the producer(s) of the Licensed Content (collectively and individually, the “Indemnified Parties”) harmless from and against any and all claims, liability, losses, costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and legal costs) incurred by any of the Indemnified Parties as a result of (i) any use by Licensee of any of the Licensed Content outside the scope of this Agreement, (ii) any actual or alleged breach by Licensee of this Agreement; and/or (iii) any claim threatened or asserted against any of the Indemnified Parties arising out of or connection with Licensee’s infringement of any copyright, trade secret, trademark, right of privacy, right of publicity and/or other intellectual or other property right of any third party.
