What Are Image Licenses?

When you spend money at CSA Images, you are not buying the image outright but rather purchasing a license that grants you specific rights to use the image. Ownership and copyright of all images always reside with CSA Images or its contributors. All licenses are subject to CSA Images' End User License Agreement.

Terms And Conditions For Use Of Csa Images Illustrations, Photographs And Other Images:

The following is a legal agreement between you and CSA Images, a Minnesota corporation with offices at 124 North First Street, Minneapolis, Minnesota 55401. The term "CSA" used within this agreement includes CSA Images, Inc., and when applicable, its affiliates, content providers, successors, licensors, licensees, resellers, and their respective directors, officers, employees, shareholders, partners and agents.

BEFORE YOU MAY ACCESS OR LICENSE CSA'S ILLUSTRATIONS, PHOTOGRAPHS, AND OTHER IMAGES (COLLECTIVELY, "CSA COLLECTIONS"), YOU MUST AGREE TO ALL OF THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS. Your acceptance of these terms are evidenced by your accessing, using, and/or browsing this web site and/or clicking "I Agree" where indicated.

  1. Your Binding Agreement.

    You agree to read these terms and conditions of use carefully before viewing, accessing, and using the CSA COLLECTIONS, and you accept the terms as stated on behalf of yourself or the entity for which the images will be used. You represent that you are authorized to bind the organization or business that receives and will use the image(s). By viewing, purchasing, downloading or capturing an image from the CSA COLLECTIONS, you agree to all of the terms and conditions for use of the CSA COLLECTIONS. If you do not agree to these terms and conditions of use, you will not view, access, or otherwise use the CSA COLLECTIONS.
  2. Unauthorized Use/Your Responsibilities.

    CSA takes all unauthorized usage very seriously! CSA's business depends on the enforcement of its licenses and the payment of fees for use of its images, so the unauthorized use of images seriously jeopardizes the ability of CSA to conduct business. As a result, we must exercise all rights and remedies under applicable copyright and other laws against all unauthorized users and their employees and clients in order to continue providing the CSA COLLECTIONS to you.
    1. Liquidated Damages. All licenses include certain restrictions which are clearly communicated through the web site, including restrictions as to manner and quantity. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO MONITOR ALL USES OF IMAGES YOU LICENSE, REGARDLESS OF WHO USES THEM. SHOULD THE SCOPE OF USE EXCEED THE LICENSED RESTRICTIONS, OR INVOLVE UNAUTHORIZED IMAGE(S), YOU WILL BE BILLED FOR THAT USE AS FOLLOWS:
      • In addition to any and all fees, damages and penalties CSA Images may be entitled to under this Agreement and applicable law, you hereby agree to pay twenty (20) times the standard CSA license fee based on your actual use of the image(s) for any and all unauthorized uses of CSA images, plus a 10% royalty on gross retail sales revenue for unauthorized use of an image on products for sale, and a 50% royalty on gross sales related to unauthorized sub-licensing or any other unauthorized redistribution of the image; you also agree to pay CSA's attorney fees accrued in resolving the matter of your unauthorized use; and you agree to injunctive relief in respect to any unauthorized use.
    2. Unauthorized Use/Retroactive License Fee.
      In the event that (i) you utilize any image without or prior to the granting of a license, or (ii) you utilize any image for any use other than those indicated in the terms, including but not limited to the type and number of uses or the size or reproduction, CSA images reserves the right to seek damages through legal channels unless you agree to reimburse CSA as follows:
      • Since it is difficult to determine damages resulting from unauthorized usage, in the event you utilize an image other than for the usage indicated on our invoice and/or in the terms of this agreement, we agree to forego our right to sue you for copyright infringement and you agree to pay, as liquidated damages, a retroactive license equal to twenty (20) times the normal price we would have charged for such unauthorized use, plus a 15% royalty on gross retail sales and a 50% royalty on gross sales related to sublicensing or redistribution of images within ten (10) days of our billing such fee. If you fail to timely make such payment, this liquidated damage provision shall be void and we shall have the right to sue for copyright infringement and/or breach of contract, for which we will seek all damages and remedies available, including attorney's fees and all associated costs.
      • You acknowledge and agree that the above fees are a reasonable approximation of the expense and diligence required by CSA in monitoring and policing unauthorized uses of its images and partially accounts for the detriment to the commercial value of the images based on such unauthorized usage, although such detriment cannot truly be compensated by monetary amounts.
    3. Lawful Use.
      You further agree that, in addition to complying with the terms of this Agreement, you will use this site in accordance with all applicable United States federal, state and local laws, statutes, regulations and ordinances and will not take any action that harms or violates the rights of any person or entity, specifically including CSA.
    4. You agree to indemnify CSA Images and hold CSA Images harmless against all claims arising out of any breach by you of this Agreement.
  3. Unauthorized Use/Your Client's Responsibilities.

    Copyright infringement liability travels to your employer and client. If you infringe our copyrights on behalf of your employer or client, we will pursue those parties, in addition to you, for all payment of damages under the Copyright Act. We can seek up to $150,000 per work infringed under the statutory damages provisions of the Copyright Act, which is likely to irreparably harm your client relationship.
  4. Copyright Ownership/Derivative Works.

    1. Our Ownership.
      CSA COLLECTIONS consist of multiple collections comprised of thousands of specific images which are protected as individual works and proprietary compilations under the United States Copyright Laws and International Copyright Treaties. CSA or its contributors retains all right, title, and interest in and to all such copyrights, patent rights, trademarks, and all other proprietary rights in the CSA COLLECTIONS. You receive no rights except the limited rights licensed via CSA. You acknowledge the validity of CSA's ownership of copyrights in the CSA COLLECTIONS, and you hereby waive any rights to challenge the validity of that ownership.
    2. Your Obligations with Respect to CSA Copyrights.
      You do not acquire any copyright ownership in any images from the CSA COLLECTIONS based on any right, title or interest which may arise in an authorized compilation or derivative work you create using images from the CSA COLLECTIONS. You grant CSA the perpetual, royalty-free right to use any authorized compilation or derivative work utilizing the CSA COLLECTIONS for self-promotion and demonstration purposes. You agree to adhere to any and all additional copyright notices, information, or restrictions contained on any website or catalog in which CSA COLLECTIONS may appear, or on any images from the CSA COLLECTIONS which you license or download. When you use an image from the CSA COLLECTIONS, you agree to maintain all copyright and other notices contained in such content. You agree not to claim copyright or trademark rights in any altered image, the copyright shall always remain with CSA Images or its contributors. All images on this website are Copyright 2015 CSA Images, or its contributors. The names CSA, CSA Archive, Plastock, Snapstock, Printstock, CSA Images, and Pop Ink are registered trademarks of CSA Images, Inc.
    3. Image Credit.
      All Licensed Material used in an editorial context must include the following credit line adjacent to the Licensed Material: "illustration ©csaimages" or as otherwise shown on the CSA Images’ website. If Licensee omits the credit, an additional fee in an amount up to one hundred percent (100%) of the License Fee may be payable by Licensee, at CSA Images' sole discretion. The foregoing fee shall be in addition to any other rights or remedies that CSA Images may have at law or in equity.
  5. License Terms For Low Resolution Comping Images.

    Prior to purchasing a license for formal use of an image, you may download low resolution watermarked versions of CSA COLLECTIONS images solely for internal comping purposes, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. You may not use these comping images in any manner except for internal evaluation to determine whether or not to formally license the image. Unless otherwise stated, the licensed term for using an image for comping purposes is 40 days from the date you download the image. You agree not to use the comping image in any other manner, or after the 40-day term, without obtaining a formal license for that image. If you do not obtain such a formal license, you agree to destroy all copies of the image used for comping purposes and the corresponding comped material. You agree to call CSA directly to request any rights to use images for comping purposes beyond the scope of the terms outlined in this paragraph.
  6. Use of Licensed Images from CSA COLLECTIONS.

    1. Seat Licenses.
      A limit of up to 1 person employed by the company at the time of CSA Images purchase are permitted to use images you license (up to 2 people for fonts). Any license granted to you by CSA is limited, non-transferable and non-sublicensable, unless otherwise specified in writing. After obtaining a license for use, images may be cropped, resized and elements of the image may be diminished or removed as needed for the licensed purpose. You may transfer licensed images to your client, contractors, or ISP for the purpose of reproduction for permitted uses provided that they will have no further or additional rights to use the images and cannot access them or extract them from any file you provide. You are jointly and severally liable for any breach of any license terms by employees or contractors who you may secure to utilize the licensed material.
    2. Derivative Works.
      You acknowledge and agree that images from the CSA COLLECTIONS may not be used as reference or as a basis to create a different image. You agree not to provide (or indicate by CSA image number) to an independent illustrator, photographer, or other person any CSA image to use as reference or for the style or approach to create a new image. Only copyright owners are allowed to create such "derivative works," therefore, such practices specifically violate the U.S. Copyright Act and will be prosecuted. If ever a modification or alteration made by you to a CSA Image does constitute a derivative work, the rights to all such derivative works shall belong exclusively to CSA Images or its providers, as the case may be, and that you shall only use such derivative work in accordance with this Agreement. If requested by CSA Images, you agree to execute a written assignment of any such rights, including copyrights, at no cost to CSA Images.
    3. Electronic Images.
      For all licensed images you obtain in electronic form, you agree to retain the copyright symbol, the name of CSA, the identification number and any other information embedded in the electronic file containing the original licensed image. You may not make any additional high-resolution copies of the image. You further agree that images may not be compiled, stored, redistributed, syndicated, resold, sublicensed, placed online in an FTP or downloadable format, used for "on-demand" applications, or otherwise used by any person or entity other than you for projects for you or your clients, unless expressly authorized by CSA. Licensee may not make the Licensed Material available in any medium in a manner intended to allow or invite a third party to download, extract or access the Licensed Material as a stand-alone file, such as for a screensaver.
    4. Mobile Devices.
      Licensed Material may not be modified, reconfigured or repurposed for use in any mobile-directed websites or mobile applications that are specifically created for viewing of Licensed Material and/or the Licensee work on mobile devices, without obtaining the prior written consent of CSA Images, which consent might require payment of an additional License Fee. For clarification, this restriction on mobile use is not breached if Licensed Material that is licensed for website use can be viewed via mobile devices in a "pull" (as opposed to "push") fashion, provided it is not so specifically modified, reconfigured or repurposed for this purpose.
    5. Offending Uses Prohibited.
      If images featuring a person will be used in connection with unflattering or controversial subject matter, or used to imply connection to or endorsement of a product, the image must be accompanied by a statement that states the person is a model used for illustrative purposes only. Images from the CSA COLLECTIONS may not be used for any pornographic uses, unlawful purposes, uses which reflect poorly on CSA, or in violation of any privacy, publicity, moral rights, copyright, or trademark rights.
    6. Attribution/Notice.
      You agree to include attribution and copyright notice (when possible) in close proximity to each licensed image in the following format: ©csaimages.com.
    7. Protection of Content.
      Licensee may not, directly or indirectly, reproduce the Licensee work in any secondary reproductions, such as compilations, screenshots, in-context promotions or on file-sharing or social networking websites such as YouTube, Facebook, MySpace, Bebo, etc. You agree to use best efforts in protecting your use of the licensed material to ensure that it cannot be copied. You agree to maintain an industry-standard firewall to safeguard against unauthorized third-party access to licensed images.
    8. Copies.
      At CSA's reasonable request, you agree to provide one copy of any and all end uses made of the licensed image(s) under this Agreement to CSA at no charge.
  7. No Logos.

    Since these images are licensed on a nonexclusive basis, they may not be used in any logo, trademark or service mark application. Also, logos and trademarks may not be applied to any licensed image.
  8. Releases/Clearance of Content are Your Responsibility.

    1. Clearing Third Party Rights. CSA COLLECTIONS contain very few images which utilize property or other content that could possibly involve the proprietary rights of others, but some images may be subject to copyrights, trademarks, rights of publicity, rights of privacy, rights of affiliation, moral rights or other rights. The use of such images is at your sole risk and liability, and you are solely responsible for determining whether your use of any such images requires a release or waiver. CSA makes no representations or warranties that it has licensed any rights related to any persons, places, buildings, property or subject matter depicted in the CSA COLLECTIONS, and CSA has not secured any releases for the small percentage of images that could possibly require clearance of such third party rights.
    2. Clearance Opinions.

      CSA does not represent or endorse the accuracy or reliability of any advice, opinion, statement, or other information displayed or distributed through any website or catalog in which CSA COLLECTIONS may appear. You acknowledge that any reliance upon any such opinion, advice, statement, memorandum or information shall be at your sole risk. If you do not wish to incur the above risks, CSA recommends you select an image which does not contain any recognizable people or any potentially proprietary third party content or consult legal counsel.

      CSA grants no rights and makes no warranties with regard to the use of names, trademarks, trade dress, registered, unregistered or copyrighted designs or works of art or architecture depicted in any licensed material, and you must satisfy yourself that all the necessary rights or consents regarding any of the above, as may be required for reproduction, have been obtained.

      CSA Images' Licensed Material often purposely re-creates historic printing techniques to replicate the look of ink printed on paper. This style features paper texture, Ben Day dots, off-registered colors, process color dot screens, and printer dust specks and imperfections to capture the authentic look of printing in a digital image. Some of the Licensed Material contains "artifacts" or other flaws inherent in historic printing methods and are not defects.

      Licensee should examine all Licensed Material for possible defects (whether digital or otherwise) before sending any Licensed Material for reproduction. Licensor shall not be liable for any loss or damage suffered by Licensee or any third party, whether directly or indirectly, arising from any alleged or actual defect in any Licensed Material or its keywords, caption or in any way from its reproduction.

      If any use of CSA Images Licensed Material gives rise to publication rights (as defined in The Copyright and Related Rights Regulation or to any similar rights in any other country), those rights shall belong exclusively to CSA Images. Licensee shall do all such things and shall procure rights from any third parties in whom such rights may otherwise vest (including executing assignments) as are required to vest ownership of all such rights exclusively in CSA Images.

    3. Errors/Subjectively Offensive Content. Some information on the site may contain technical or other mistakes, factual or legal inaccuracies, typographical errors, or be incomplete or out-of-date. Additionally, this site and its content (including images) may include images and text that you, your client's or consumers may find inappropriate or potentially offensive. You are solely responsible for determining whether any site content is accurate, current, or complete, or whether the use of such information may be offensive.
  9. Your Account.

    You agree that your CSA account is a privilege which allows you to access, utilize and otherwise enjoy the website. You agree your password to access the site will be kept secret and confidential. You shall not disclose your account information, including your account number, account name, or password, to any other party without the express written permission of CSA. You further agree that you will be responsible for all access or use of the site which occurs through your account, and that use of your account information and password to access the site constitutes conclusive evidence that you are responsible for the access to the site and utilization of any content. You agree that you are responsible for all damages and account activity resulting from all uses of your account, regardless of your actual knowledge of such use. If you suspect someone is making unauthorized uses of your account, contact CSA immediately.
  10. Termination of Account and Service.

    You agree that CSA, in its sole discretion, may terminate your password, account (or any part thereof) or use of the site and CSA COLLECTIONS, at any time for any reason or no reason. CSA may also in its sole discretion and at any time discontinue providing the CSA COLLECTIONS, or any part thereof, with or without notice. You agree that any termination of your access to the images under any provision of this Agreement may be effected without prior notice, and acknowledge and agree that CSA may immediately deactivate or delete your account and all related information and files in your account and/or bar any further access to such files of the site. Further, you agree that CSA shall not be liable to you or any third-party for any termination of your access to the site. Should you object to any terms and conditions of the Agreement or become dissatisfied with the site in any way, your only recourse is to immediately discontinue your use of the site and/or terminate your account.

    5. CSA Liability to You.
      CSA'S ENTIRE LIABILITY AND YOUR ENTIRE REMEDY FOR ANY DAMAGES OR LOSS YOU MAY SUFFER FROM ANY CAUSE WHATSOEVER SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT PAID BY YOU TO CSA OR ITS RESELLER FOR THE PRODUCT/IMAGE AT ISSUE.

      YOU SPECIFICALLY ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT CSA'S MODEST PRICING STRUCTURE JUSTIFIES SHARING LIABILITY WITH YOU AS OUTLINED ABOVE.
    7. Exclusions.
      SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW FOR THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
  12. Injunctive Relief.

    You agree that the unauthorized use of CSA's images could do irreparable harm to CSA and the value of its property and that such harm cannot adequately be addressed by monetary damages. As such, you agree CSA is entitled to immediate injunctive relief, in addition to all other damages and claims available under law, in connection with the unauthorized use of its images.
  13. Your Indemnification of CSA.

    You agree to indemnify, defend and hold CSA harmless against all claims (including claims by third parties), liability, damages, judgments, settlements, costs and expenses (including reasonable legal fees and expenses), arising out of or relating to: (a) your breach or alleged breach of any terms, conditions or restrictions of the license agreement; (b) your use or modification of any licensed material; (c) your failure to secure any permission needed from third parties to use the licensed material; and (d) any act or failure to act by you or any of your employees, contractors, employers, agents or other affiliates.

  15. License Fees.

    CSA Images may not be used for any purpose unless a specific license for use has first been authorized and obtained in writing from CSA.

  17. Agreement Modification/Termination.

    CSA reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to change, modify, add, or remove any portion of this Agreement, in whole or in part, at any time, and to modify, suspend, or terminate this Agreement at any time for any reason without prior notice, including image pricing. You may not modify the terms of this Agreement absent written consent from CSA which clearly and conspicuously references the specific modification.
  18. Discontinued or Recalled Images.

    At the sole discretion of CSA, images in CSA COLLECTIONS may be discontinued, replaced or withdrawn and an existing license for images may be revoked for any reason at any time without prior notice. Upon notice of any discontinuance of a license for a particular image, you agree to immediately and at your own expense stop using the image, remove all electronic or physical copies of the image from your possession, and make sure your clients do likewise. In the event an image has been revoked by CSA and you have been unable to make any use of an image already paid for within 30 days of purchase, you will be entitled to a refund of the purchase price. If the revoked image has been used or 30 days have passed, no refund is available.
