In consideration of the opportunity to participate in the Maryland State Arts Council On-Line Maryland Artist Registry Database (the “On-Line Registry”) administered by Maryland Art Place, I hereby grant permission and license to Maryland State Arts Council and Maryland Art Place to digitize images of my artwork and to include up to six (6) of such images (images should be updated at least once every two years) in the On-Line Registry, which will be publicly accessible by Internet connection.
Maryland Art Place may create “low resolution” digital versions of these images to conserve electronic storage space and as a possible deterrent to copyright infringement. Furthermore, I acknowledge that should I choose to digitize and upload images to the registry from my end, that the terms laid out in this agreement still apply.
I represent and warrant that I have the full and unrestricted right to grant this permission and that the works I submit to the Registry are original and do not infringe the copyright or any other proprietary right of any other person or organization.
By joining the MSAC Artist Registry, you will also be added to MSAC's email newsletter, which includes news and opportunities for artists. You can unsubscribe at any time.
Note: Artist profiles that have not been updated in two years will be automatically hidden from the registry, meaning profiles not updated in the past two years will not be visible or searchable. To avoid having your profile hidden, artists are encouraged to update images and profile information frequently. Profiles that are hidden will reappear on the site after updating.
I may terminate the license granted hereunder by written notice sent by certified mail to Maryland Art Place, Inc., 218 W Saratoga Street, Baltimore, MD 21201. Maryland Art Place shall delete my images from the On-Line Registry within thirty (30) days following its receipt of such notice.
Neither Maryland State Arts Council nor Maryland Art Place is under any obligation to continue to offer the On-Line Registry service, and may discontinue such service and/or delete any artwork from the On-Line Registry at any time.
I agree that neither, the State of Maryland (the “State”), Maryland State Arts Council, nor any of their officials, agents or employees, nor Maryland Art Place nor any of their officials, agents or employees shall bear any responsibility or liability for infringement of my copyright, trademarks or any other rights by third parties as a result of the availability of my artwork or contact information on the On-Line Registry, and I will indemnify and absolve Maryland Art Place, Maryland State Arts Council, the State, their officials, agents, and employees from and against all claims, suits, damages and costs arising out of or resulting from the use of the artwork and images. I shall be solely responsible for securing any copyright registrations I deem necessary to protect my rights in the artwork and images.
By agreeing to these Terms and Conditions, I affirm that I am 18 years of age or older and am a resident of the State of Maryland.
Artists who choose to opt in to the Marketplace also agree to be bound by the Marketplace Terms of Service.
