Drone Pals Contributor License Agreement


This Drone Pals Contributor License Agreement (“Agreement”) is between Drone Pals LLC (“Drone Pals”) and the other individual or entity signing (including by electronic signature or clicking “I agree” or taking a similar action) this Agreement (“you”) (collectively, the “Parties). This Agreement applies to all content that you have previously submitted and, in the future, will submit, that is accepted for distribution by Drone Pals (“User Content”). This Agreement supersedes and cancels all previous agreements you have entered into with Drone Pals related to the distribution of User Content, other than the Drone Pals Terms of Service, and the Drone Pals Privacy Notice.


1.1 License Grant to Drone Pals. By submitting any User Content to Drone Pals, you grant Drone Pals a worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, sublicensable right to use, copy, reproduce, rebrand, display, transmit, broadcast, modify, alter, create derivative works of and publish the whole or part of any User Content (as defined below) that you submit to Drone Pals. These rights may be exercised via any analog or digital means of communication now known or hereafter devised including without limitation via print, websites, other electronic formats, mobile devices, TV, cinema, exhibitions; and, subject to applicable laws, may be used for any purpose of any nature including without limitation for advertising, publicity, promotions, graphic design, marketing within and on products, corporate communications, press articles, press releases, brochures, reports, décor, programs and films. Drone Pals may sublicense or authorize any third party distributors (“Distributors”), any customer who licenses User Content from Drone Pals or a Distributor (“Customers”) and their customers to exercise the rights described in this Section 1. Drone Pals and Distributors will determine the terms and conditions of all licenses of User Content granted by them, but will not knowingly use or license User Content for uses that are defamatory, pornographic or otherwise illegal and will use commercially reasonable efforts to stop any such use by Customers brought to their attention. Drone Pals and Distributors may determine how User Content may be marketed and may stop marketing or licensing it at any time. If Drone Pals notifies you that it has permanently stopped marketing and licensing any particular User Content, the Agreement will be deemed to be terminated only with regards to that User Content.

1.2 Types of Content. As used in this Agreement, User Content means  any message, comment, data, information, text, music, sound, photos, graphics, code or other material you submit to us, including but not limited to (a) photographs, illustrations, or other still visual representations (“Still Image(s)”); (b) moving visual content in any form including, film, video tape, digital files, animations, and clips (“Footage”); and (c) font, audio file and any other work protected by copyright but not included as part of a Still Image or Footage (“Other User Content”), in all cases, generated by any means and in any format or medium, including any reproductions and any modifications and derivative works thereof.

1.3 Acceptance or Rejection of Your User Content. Drone Pals is under no obligation to accept any submission from you of any User Content. Drone Pals will use commercially reasonable efforts to accept or reject User Content that you submit within 30 days. Drone Pals may reject any submitted User Content at any time in its sole discretion. Any User Content submitted from your email address and/or using a username/password issued to you shall be taken by Drone Pals as evidence that such Content has been submitted by you.

1.4 Collections and Movement of User Content. User Content may be included in one or more of Drone Pals’ current or future Drone Pals Content collections (“Collections”) made available for licensing or distribution by Drone Pals or Distributors. When you submit Content you will be asked to specify, where appropriate, the license model(s) through which the Content is available to be licensed. Drone Pals will determine the Collection and may subsequently move and license User Content through any other license models and/or Collections.

1.5 Royalties. In consideration for the license grant from you pursuant to Section 1.1 of this Agreement, Drone Pals will pay to you (or in the case of Combined Works or Aggregated Works, to all Contributors as a group, divided in Drone Pals’ reasonable discretion) a royalty based on a percentage of either Gross License Fees or Net License Fees as follows:

Type of User ContentPercent of Gross License FeesPercent of Net License Fees
Still Images: digital delivery to Customer50%Not Applicable
Still Images: physical delivery to CustomerNot Applicable50%
Footage50%Not Applicable
Other User ContentCustom: as may be agreed between Customer and Drone Pals

Gross License Fees” means the revenue actually received from Customers for the license from Drone Pals of your User Content, but excluding any (i) applicable taxes, duties or levies of any nature required to be withheld, deducted or paid by Drone Pals from any current or future sums due to you by any law, regulation, or treaty.

Net License Fees” means Gross License Fees minus any shipping charges, insurance charges and service fees (including but not limited to special formatting requests, printing/framing costs and technology delivery/access services (“License Fee Deductions”).

A “Combined Work” is any content which includes the User Content of two or more Contributors merged into a work which Drone Pals licenses as a single work.

An “Aggregated Work” is a license to Drone Pals Content which may be offered to a Customer on a high-volume basis. Accordingly, where appropriate, the amount due to you will be determined in Drone Pals’ sole discretion, taking into account the ratio of the number of individual items of your User Content to the total number of individual items of Content licensed together, ; or the relative value of your User Content compared to all other User Content licensed together with it. In addition, the frequency and methodology for reporting and paying Royalties may also vary in order to facilitate such high-volume licensing.

1.6 Royalty Deductions. Despite any other provision to the contrary, Drone Pals may deduct the following amounts from any royalties payable to you (together the “Royalty Deductions”): (a) cancellations, partial refunds or other sales incentive rebates in respect of a license where the original sale has been reported in a current or past sales report (“Sales Report”) including where due to a fraudulent transaction; (b) overpayment of royalties in a prior royalty period; and (c) amounts that may be deducted or withheld in accordance with the Section titled Indemnification. Drone Pals will notify you of any Royalty Deductions in a Sales Report before deducting amounts from payments to you. Other than Royalties for Content that is improperly credited to you or any cancellations under (a), if Drone Pals has not notified you of any Royalty Deduction within 1 year after it has been incurred, Drone Pals waives the right to recoup it.

1.7 Reporting and Payment. Drone Pals will use reasonable commercial efforts to, within 30 days after the end of each calendar month (the “Sales Month”), make available to you a Sales Report for transactions reported during the Sales Month. The Sales Report will state the Royalties due to you, and any Royalty Deductions. Drone Pals will make royalty payments monthly, within 30 days after the end of each Sales Month, by check or electronic funds transfer. No payment will be made unless a minimum of US$50.00, after Royalty Deductions, is due to you.

1.8 Marketing Use of User Content. Drone Pals and Distributors may use User Content to market you, your work, Drone Pals, or Distributors, including use in composites that include Content supplied by a third party. No royalties will be paid on these marketing uses.

1.9 Right to Control Claims. Drone Pals shall have the right to determine, using its best commercial judgment, whether and to what extent to proceed against any third party for any unauthorized use of User Content. You authorize Drone Pals and Distributors at their expense the exclusive right to make, control, settle and defend any claims related to infringement of copyright in the User Content and any associated intellectual property rights (“Claims”). You agree to provide reasonable cooperation to Drone Pals and Distributors and not to unreasonably withhold or delay your cooperation in these Claims. Drone Pals will not enter into any settlement that will compromise your ownership of the copyright in User Content or that prohibits your future conduct with respect to User Content without your prior written consent. Drone Pals will pay you Royalties on any settlements it receives from Claims. If Drone Pals elects not to pursue a Claim, you will have the right to pursue it.

1.10 Copyright Ownership; Use of User Content by You. Except for the license granted to Drone Pals in this Agreement, you reserve all right, title, and interest in and to your User Content, including when it is incorporated in a derivative work created by others. That means that you can keep doing whatever you want with your User Content, and you can license it to anyone else under any terms you want, except that that license must not conflict with the rights you have licensed to Drone Pals under this Agreement. Drone Pals will own all right, title and interest, including all copyrights that arise apart from the copyright in your User Content, to all types of derivative works created by or for Drone Pals that contain multiple items of User Content and/or other Content. Either you or Drone Pals on behalf of you may register the copyright in any User Content with the relevant copyright authority.

1.11 Credit and Moral Rights. Using the credit line supplied by you, Drone Pals shall use commercially reasonable efforts to credit you as the source of User Content, but shall have no liability for lack of credit. For the purposes of this Agreement, “Moral Rights” means all non-transferable and non-licensable rights belonging to the original creator of User Content that are automatically conferred by legislation to varying degrees in different countries, which shall include the following rights and all rights of a similar nature: (a) the right to be identified as the creator; (b) the right to object to misrepresentative modification of User Content; and (c) the right to withdraw User Content from the market (except pursuant to the termination provisions of this Agreement). To the extent allowed by law, you waive all your Moral Rights relating to User Content. To the extent such waivers are not permitted by applicable law, you agree not to enforce such moral rights against Drone Pals, Distributors or Customers. Where you are not the owner of any Moral Rights, you confirm that all Moral Rights have been waived to this same extent or that you have obtained the same commitments not to enforce Moral Rights. Further, you acknowledge and accept that it is common business practice for commercial uses that the creator of Content is not credited and that Content may be modified.

Drone Pals Content License Agreement

Drone Pals Content License Agreement

v. 2020-09-29

This Drone Pals Content License Agreement (this “Agreement”) is a legal agreement between Drone Pals and the other person or entity who agrees to this Agreement (“You”). This Agreement governs your license from Drone Pals of photos, illustrations, vectors, animations, and video clips (individually and collectively, “Content”) delivered to you by Drone Pals, including by allowing you to download such Content from Drone Pals’ website. By downloading and Content from Drone Pals, You accept the terms of this Agreement.

1.     Types of Licenses. Drone Pals offers three types of Content licenses: Standard (Low Resolution); Standard (High Resolution); and Commercial Production.

2.     License Grants; Exception.

a.     Standard Content License – Low Resolution. Subject to Your payment of the applicable license fee, and subject to the License Restrictions set forth below, Drone Pals grants you the limited, personal, non-transferrable, non-sublicensable, perpetual right to use and display the Content solely in digital format. This means that you may use the Content in an electronic format, such as a website, blog, digital advertising, digital promotion, digital editorial, or online social media account; but you may not use the Content, or allow others to use the content, in any printed format.

b.     Standard Content License – High Resolution. Subject to Your payment of the applicable license fee, and subject to the License Restrictions set forth below, Drone Pals grants you the limited, personal, non-transferrable, non-sublicensable, perpetual right to use and display the Content solely in digital format. This means that you may use the Content in an electronic format, such as a website, blog, digital advertising, digital promotion, digital editorial, or online social media account; but you may not use the Content, or allow others to use the content, in any printed format.

c.      Commercial Production Content License. Subject to Your payment of the applicable license fee, and subject to the License Restrictions set forth below, Drone Pals grants you the limited, personal, non-transferrable, non-sublicensable right to use and display the Content in digital or print format. This means that you may use the Content in an electronic format, such as a website, and in physical print formats such as brochures, magazines and posters.

d.     Meaning of “Use.” For the purposes of the license grants set forth above, the word “use” means copy, reproduce, modify, edit, synchronize, perform, display, broadcast, publish, or otherwise make use of, in all cases subject to the License Restrictions.

e.     Exception for Sublicense. Despite the “non-sublicensable” nature of the license grants above, you may allow certain third parties to exercise some of your licensed rights as follows:

i.     If You are licensing Content on behalf of your employer or client, then your employer or client exercise Your rights in the Content, subject to the License Restrictions. In that case, You represent and warrant that You have full legal authority to bind your employer or client to the terms of this Agreement. If You do not have that authority, then your employer or client may not use the Content. The rights licensed may only belong to You or your employer/client, depending on who is named as the “Licensee” at the time you license the Content. In other words, only one of you (and not both) may re-use the Content for multiple projects.

ii.     You may allow subcontractors (for example, your printer or mailing house) or distributors to use the licensed Content in any production or distribution process related to Your final project or end use. These subcontractors and/or distributors must agree to be bound by the terms of this Agreement and may not use the Content for any other purpose.

3.     License Restrictions. You will not, and You will not allow any third party to:

a.     use the Content in a pornographic, defamatory or other unlawful manner, or in violation of any applicable laws or regulations (including for sports content, any restrictions or credentials issued by a sports league or governing body) or industry codes, or in violation of any laws protecting the privacy rights of individuals;

b.     use Content in any way that allows others to download, extract, or redistribute the Content as a standalone file (meaning just the Content file itself, separate from the project or end use);

c.      falsely represent that You are the original creator of a work that is made up largely of the Content (for example, You cannot create artwork based solely on the Content and claim that you are the author);

d.     unless You purchase a Commercial Production license, use the Content in electronic or digital templates intended for resale or other distribution (for example, website templates, business card templates, electronic greeting card templates, brochure design templates);

e.     unless you purchase a Commercial Production license, use the Content (in whole or in part) as the distinctive or distinguishing feature of a trademark, design mark, tradename, business name, service mark, or logo;

f.      unless additional rights are agreed in writing between You and Drone Pals, use any Content marked “editorial” for any commercial, promotional, advertorial, endorsement, advertising or merchandising purpose (This type of content is not model or property released and is intended to be used only in connection with events or topics that are newsworthy or of general public interest, for example, in a blog, textbook, newspaper or magazine article);

g.     register (in any jurisdiction) the Content (in whole or in part) as a trademark or rely on any such registrations, prior use, and/or accrued goodwill to prevent any third party use of the content or any similar content (including by Drone Pals, our customers, or the copyright owner of such content);

h.     unless additional rights are agreed in writing between You and Drone Pals, use the Content (including any caption information, keywords or other metadata associated with Content) for any machine learning and/or artificial intelligence purposes, or for any technologies designed or intended for the identification of natural persons;

i.       unless additional rights are agreed in writing between You and Drone Pals, use the caption information, keywords, accompanying text, or other metadata associated with Content separate and apart from the Content, or allow any third parties to access or use any such information associated with content;

j.       unless additional rights are agreed in writing between You and Drone Pals, use any Content in connection with any goods or services intended for resale or distribution where the primary value lies in the Content itself including, without limitation, cards, stationery items, paper products, calendars, apparel items, posters (printed on paper, canvas, or any other media), DVDs, mobile applications or other items for resale, license or other distribution for profit; or for “on demand” products (meaning products in which content is selected by a third party for customization on such product on a made-to-order basis), including, without limitation, postcards, mugs, t-shirts, posters and other items (this includes the sale of products through custom designed websites, as well as sites such as zazzle.com and cafepress.com); or

k.   unless additional rights are agreed in writing between You and Drone Pals, use any Content as decorative art with a total Content size greater than 1,000 square inches, such as a mural, large art display, or art installation;

l.     use Content that features models or property in connection with a subject that would be unflattering or unduly controversial to a reasonable person (for example, sexually transmitted diseases), unless You indicate: (A) that the Content is being used for illustrative purposes only, and (B) any person depicted in the Content is a model. For example, you could say: “Stock photo. Posed by model.” No disclaimer is required for Content marked “editorial” that is used in a non-misleading editorial manner.

c.      Drone Pals may discontinue licensing any item of Content at any time in its sole discretion.

Any Content not included in a project prior to the termination or expiration of this Agreement is not considered licensed and must be deleted.

Unless specifically warranted above, Drone Pals does not grant any right or make any warranty with regard to the use of names, people, trademarks, trade dress, logos, registered, unregistered or copyrighted audio, designs, works of art or architecture depicted or contained in the Content. While Drone Pals has made reasonable efforts to correctly categorize, keyword, caption and title the content, Drone Pals does not warrant the accuracy of such information, or of any metadata provided with the Content.

d.     Except as provided in this section above, the Content is provided “as is” without representation, warranty or condition of any kind, either express or implied, including, but not limited to, implied representations, warranties or conditions of merchantability, or fitness for a particular purpose or non-infringement. Drone Pals does not represent or warrant that the content or its websites will meet your requirements or that use of the content or websites will be uninterrupted or error free.

9.     Indemnification.

a.     You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Drone Pals and its parent, subsidiaries, affiliates, and Content suppliers, and each of their respective officers, directors and employees, from all damages, liabilities and expenses (including reasonable outside legal fees) arising out of or in connection with (i) Your use of any Content outside the scope of this Agreement; (ii) any breach or alleged breach by You (or anyone acting on Your behalf) of any of the terms of this Agreement; and (iii) your failure to obtain any required release for Your use of Content.

b.     Provided that you are not in breach of this Agreement or any other agreement with Drone Pals, and as your sole and exclusive remedy for any breach of the warranties set forth above, Drone Pals agrees, subject to the terms of this Section, to defend, indemnify and hold harmless you, your corporate parent, subsidiaries and affiliates, and each of your respective officers, directors and employees from all damages, liabilities and expenses (including reasonable outside legal fees) arising out of or in connection with any breach or alleged breach by Drone Pals of its warranties above. This indemnification does not apply to the extent any damages, costs or losses arise out of or are a result of modifications made by you to the content or the context in which the content is used by you. This indemnification also does not apply to your continued use of content following notice from Drone Pals, or upon Your knowledge, that the Content is subject to a claim of infringement of a third party’s right.

c.      The party seeking indemnification must promptly notify in writing the other party about the claim. The indemnifying party (the one covering the costs) has the right to assume the handling, settlement or defense of any claim or litigation. The indemnified party (the one not covering the costs) has to cooperate in any way reasonably requested by the indemnifying party. The indemnifying party will not be liable for legal fees and other costs incurred prior to the other party giving notice of the claim for which indemnity is sought.

10.  Limitations of Liability.



11.  General Provisions.

a.     This Agreement is personal to You and is not assignable by You without Drone Pals’ prior written consent. Drone Pals may assign this Agreement, without notice or consent, to any corporate affiliate or to any successor in interest, provided that such entity agrees to be bound by these terms.

b.     Upon reasonable notice, You agree to provide to Drone Pals sample copies of projects or end uses that contain licensed Content, including by providing Drone Pals with free of charge access to any pay-walled or otherwise restricted access website or platform where Content is reproduced. In addition, upon reasonable notice, Drone Pals may, at its discretion, either through its own employees or through a third party, audit Your records directly related to this Agreement and Your use of licensed Content in order to verify compliance with the terms of this Agreement. If any audit reveals an underpayment by You to Drone Pals of five percent (5%) or more of the amount You should have paid, then in addition to paying Drone Pals the amount of the underpayment, You also agree to reimburse Drone Pals for the costs of conducting the audit. Where Drone Pals reasonably believes that Content is being used outside of the scope of the license granted under this Agreement, you agree, at Drone Pals’ request, to provide a certificate of compliance signed by You or an officer of Your company, in a form to be approved by Drone Pals.

c.      You agree to retain the copyright symbol, the name of Drone Pals, the Content’s identification number and any other information that may be embedded in the electronic file containing the original Content, and to maintain appropriate security to protect the Content from unauthorized use by third parties. You may make one (1) copy of the Content for back-up purposes.

d.     This Agreement will be governed by the laws of the State of Wisconsin, U.S.A., without reference to its laws relating to conflicts of law. Any disputes arising from or related to this agreement shall be finally settled by binding, confidential arbitration by a single arbitrator selected using the rules and procedures for arbitrator selection under the JAMS’ Expedited Procedures in its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures (“JAMS”) in effect on the date of the commencement of arbitration. The sole venue for any such arbitration shall be in La Crosse County, Wisconsin. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on the parties, and judgment may be entered on the arbitration award and enforced by any court of competent jurisdiction. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not govern this Agreement. The prevailing party shall be entitled to recover its reasonable legal costs relating to that aspect of its claim or defense on which it prevails, and any opposing costs awards shall be offset. Despite the foregoing, Drone Pals shall have the right to commence and prosecute any legal or equitable action or proceeding before any court of competent jurisdiction to obtain injunctive or other relief against You in the event that, in the opinion of Drone Pals, such action is necessary or desirable to protect its, or its Content providers’ intellectual property rights.

e.     If one or more of the provisions in this Agreement is found to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions should not be affected. Such provisions should be revised only to the extent necessary to make them enforceable.

f.      No action of either party, other than express written waiver, may be construed as a waiver of any provision of this Agreement.

g.     No terms of conditions of this Agreement may be added or deleted unless made in writing and accepted in writing by both parties, or issued electronically by Drone Pals and accepted in writing by you. In the event of any inconsistency between the terms of this Agreement and the terms contained on any purchase order sent by you, the terms of this Agreement will apply.

h.     All notices required to be sent to Drone Pals under this Agreement should be sent via email to team@dronepals.com. All notices to You will be sent via email to the email set out in Your account.
