Aoi Agreement Meaning

From my point of view, as a professional illustrator, I always hope to be responsive and fair and get a practical licensing contract that meets the needs of my clients, while paying fair for my work. Licensing should not stand in the way of the illustration itself… What`s the fun bit, isn`t it? An illustration licensing agreement is essentially a contract between an illustrator and his client, which clearly defines the work he has commissioned and the conditions of its use. I fully understand that the idea of unknown or additional costs can be worrying and potentially problematic, especially for small businesses, where finances can be limited or difficult to manage. Each case is different, but in general, illustrators are a friendly bunch, and wouldn`t seek to keep you ransom about the extra use that might have been unforeseen… It is more about reaching a mutual agreement that works on both sides. According to the latest recommendations of the IA, the previous document has been replaced by a new agreement on the illustrative commission – it is a simple contract, but with a little more detail than before. Here is my version of the agreement based on the AOI model – once we have agreed to the work you have commissioned me, I will send you a copy with all the relevant details for your project. The tax attached to the licence includes the development of the figure and the agreed use. .

Perhaps, even if it is not always the case. An illustration license means that you only have to pay for the use you need, instead of forever covering all possible uses of this illustration, regardless of the medium. For example, an “All Media, In Perpetuity” license would cost more than a 3 or 5 year license for a particular use… and if you keep in mind that an illustration can have a limited life, it`s just a matter of thinking about how long you probably want to use. . . . However, if an illustration was initially conceded for use on a business card, for example, but once it was completed, could be shaky that it was rolled out on a number of goods to sell them, there would rightly be a problem! The best approach is to be in advance with the illustrator, to check what was content on the original license and if it is not included, discuss it with them before continuing and using it elsewhere.

. . . . To mention it again, illustrators` fees can sometimes be negotiable. As a small business, you may have a limited budget – it helps to be ahead of it, so it can be taken into account when an illustrator quotes for work. There may be some flexibility in what can be done in terms of licensing to reduce fees, or a discount may be offered in certain circumstances, especially if the illustrator is interested in working with you. The points discussed generally relate to the direct license of illustrations, directly between an illustrator and a client, because that is what I have mostly experienced. For the licensing of illustrations for specific purposes – z.B for animations or if the image is a key element on a product for sale (p.B a greeting card or t-shirt) – other special considerations may be taken into consideration.
