I'm just getting into cover art, and want to start selling pre-made book covers. If I see a pre-made book cover, how can I transfer the license for the stock images used, to the client?
I understand that it can be done, after reading through other threads. However, I'm looking for guidance on EXACTLY what needs to be done, to do so. Is there a form to fill out? Someone please help, otherwise, I won't be using adobe stock for this.
Well easy: The client signs a paper that you have acquired a stock license on his behalf and that he is aware of the license terms and that he will adhere to the terms. You keep that with your papers and you are OK.
Same image for the next customer: you need to license again.
So I just write something up that they sign. It's that simple? Does it need to be super legal? I mean could it be as simple as:
I <Name> am aware that <business name> has acquired a stock photo license from Adobe for the design of my book cover. I agree to abide by the terms of any license agreement <link to agreement> for any stock images purchased by <business name> through a third-party image provider for my use in my book cover design.
Yes, that would be pretty fine. You could include the license id and then it would be perfect. Instead of a link to the agreement, you could attach it. I love to store the conditions with the asset as they may change. But legal are those at the time of purchase.
