|When purchasing an image from Category 2a you will be bound by the following agreement:|
CartoonStock - Purchaser's license agreement|
|Scope of license|
Use by a private individual, not for commercial gain, at one URL for a period of up to 1 year, where that URL is part of a blog, a personal page on a social networking website or a posting on a web forum. Indefinite archiving is permissable as long as image is not actively posted for more than 1 year.
A blog is defined as a regularly updated weblog, updated at least weekly and presented in a "diary" format sorted by date. It may be hosted on the user's own web server, or through a third party blogging service such as Blogger.com. A social networking website is defined as a template-driven personal web page hosted within a larger webspace with a view to social networking, examples of such sites are Linkedin.com, MySpace.com, Bebo.com or Facebook.com. A forum post is defined as a single entry as part of a discussion on a web forum or chat group.
Your blog, social networking page or the forum may take advertising managed by the hosting website as a whole, but if advertising on it is managed by yourself and the resulting revenue earned directly by yourself, or the page or forum post is intended for commercial gain by promoting the writer's business or selling products or services, then this would constitute a commercial blog, social networking page or forum post and fall under our license category 3a.

For reasons of satirical comment or parody, artists may occasionally include in a cartoon ("the work"), a trademark, trading name, individual's name, otherwise copyrighted term or a feature of the rights of publicity of an individual (collectively "third party intellectual property"). While CartoonStock has permission to license the original work, the permissibility of mentioning trademarks and other forms of third party intellectual property within the work depends on the specific use of the cartoon and the country/jurisdiction in which it is being used. CartoonStock can never be aware of all case law and statute in all countries, therefore ensuring that use of a cartoon incorporating such third party intellectual property is acceptable in any specific context is the responsibility of the licensee and CartoonStock does not give any warranty in this respect.
The image user shall, upon request provide a copy to CartoonStock of any publication containing image(s) licensed from CartoonStock.
