REGULATIONS GOVERNING ANDREA PISTOLESI PHOTOS USAGES
All the images involved in any transactions with Andrea Pistolesi are to be considered creative. They are, therefore, totally subject to law and protection by the copyright of the photographer.
Andrea Pistolesi attests, moreover, to the creative ownership of theses images and declares himself to be the only proprietor of the photographs. Thus, he is the only person allowed complete copyright to his hereby produced photographs. Some images may be represented by authorised stock agents, but this is not changing the original copyright ownership.
The set of images in any fiscal or legal form does not compromise the copyright of the artist. The complete name of the photographer must appear in each case of publication.
The assignee/client can only use the image for the one usage as indicated in the relative invoice. For any different usage, the client must previously inform the photographer and the new compensation will be determined. This regulation also applies, and must be respected, when the photographer has completed a specific assignment for a particular client unless a unlimited usage has previously been agreed on in writing.
The rights to use photographic works on an unlimited basis belong to an exclusive buyer if, and only if, this is previously approved directly by the artist and such approval is correctly inscribed on the invoice of assignment. This case is also true when the photographs are in the possession of the client.
The exclusive use of the work, for a determined time, should be agreed upon in writing, and specific payment must be paid this exclusive right. For assignments, the exclusive rights to the assignee are generally warranted and guaranteed, beginning with the delivery of images, for up to six months. After this specified time, Andrea Pistolesi is allowed to use his original pictures in any other way.
It is strictly prohibited to duplicate any images or pass on such photographs to any third party as the copyright always, in any circumstance, belongs to Andrea Pistolesi. No one is allowed to reproduce, by any means or nature, the images other than for the usage as agreed upon in the relevant contract.
The photographer has the right to oppose any modification or deformation of his photographic work. Andrea Pistolesi must approve each alteration to the electronic or graphic nature of any photograph before anything is done to the image.
For the use of additional usage, prolonged usage or republication, one must be in agreement with the artist and a distinguished compensation will be appropriately determined. This agreement is always stated in writing. Digital files consigned for reproduction of images must be destroyed after use. The client is responsible for the images in their possession and any illicit diffusion of these images remains their responsibility.
The images, however transmitted, remain always the property of the photographer. However for a transaction, with lack of specific reference in writing, the material remains the exclusive property of Andrea Pistolesi that grants only the temporary use for reproduction.
The responsibility for the use of images in relation to people or property that can appear in the actual pictures is always a burden to the user. Andrea Pistolesi can provide model release when available, but will not assume any responsibility derived from using the images commercially. The editorial nature of the images in our archive is clear. Therefore, they are not generally designed to be for unlimited commercial use.
For eventual dispute one must refer to these laws 22.4.1941, n. 633 al DPR 19/79, al Digs 154/97 and to reading 248/2000. Any controversy will fall under the authority of the Foro di Firenze, Italy.
