License To Copyright

Commercial use of my media is allowed only if expressly granted by me. Contact me with inquiries.

‘Commercial Use’ regarding the use of media online or offline is defined very broadly. The determination of commercial or non-commercial use is based on the contextual use of the image. The determination is NOT based on the tax-filing status of the entity using the media nor on whether or not a financial transaction takes place.
