Title (possession) of and copyright to all Work provided hereunder shall at all times remain the exclusive property of Photographer. Upon payment by Client for the Photography Services provided by Photographer, a limited, revocable, non-assignable and non-transferable license shall be granted to Client which allows Client to use the Photography Services (images, video and/or other digital media) only for marketing the Real Estate Property itself.  The Photography Services may not be resold or distributed in any other manner without the prior written consent of Photographer.  This includes for example, using the images or video for marketing of the real estate agent, builder, architect, homeowner, or agent’s company in any form.  Upon sale of the property or client’s loss of the listing, the limited license terminates.  A new fee applies if the same home or property is relisted at a future date, either by client or any other agent.

Photographer reserves the right to use any Photography Work created under this Agreement for professional samples, displays, internet website pages, advertising, exhibitions, contests, and any other purpose.
