REAL ESTATE PHOTO RIGHTS - All Photos and rights relating to them, including copyright and ownership rights in the media in which the Photos are stored, remain the sole and exclusive property of TRIFLIX II LLC. This license provides the Client with the limited right to reproduce, publicly display, and distribute the Photos only for promotional or advertising purposes directly related to the sale of the Property. Photos used for any purpose not directly related to the sale of the Property must be with the express permission of Photographer and the payment of additional fees, unless otherwise agreed to in writing.
Photos may be uploaded to any MLS/BLC listing service solely for promotion of the Property. However, regardless of any terms and conditions of the MLS/BLC, at no time does this provide Client with the right to transfer copyright, or any other exclusive rights as provided by the Copyright Act 17 U.S.C § 106. Photos may contain copyright management information (CMI) at the discretion of the Photographer in the form of either 1) a copyright notice © and/or 2) other copyright and ownership information embedded in the metadata or elsewhere, unless otherwise agreed to by the Parties. Removing and/or altering such information is prohibited and constitutes violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) and Client will be responsible to the Photographer for any penalties and awards available under the statute.
Unless otherwise specifically provided elsewhere, any grant of rights is limited to a term of either one (1) year from the date of Photo delivery, or (2) at the termination of Client’s representation of the Property, whichever occurs first. Further use of images beyond one (1) year requires Photographer’s permission and additional fees. Rights are assigned to the Client immediately upon delivery of the Photos.
LATE PAYMENT TERMS: In the event that the Client fails to pay any amounts due under this agreement within the due date stated on the invoice, a late fee of 5% of the outstanding balance will be added to the amount owed for each week that the payment is overdue.

The Client understands and agrees that failure to pay any amounts due may result in a delay or cancellation of the project. The Client shall be responsible for all costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney fees, incurred by the Company in collecting any amounts past due.
