This document is an adaption/addition to the Australian Copyright Law2/3 and the Moral Rights that are provided to me as an Australian artist. This means I am protected by the International Copyright Treaty in countries such as the UK and the US, and you must follow these restrictions if you live in a similar country where the law varies.
This statement has been made with my written and visual art in mind, but it applies to anything I have created.
I may change these terms at any time without notice.
You’re allowed to edit/parody the work and ideas I have posted for free provided that you:
-Credit me completely in the description using my name (C. Jade Wyton / Caitlin Jade Wyton) or my relevant online username,
-Link back to either this website or one of my relevant online profiles,
-Give me notice that you have reposted my work via either the contact form on my contact page, or by messaging any of the accounts listed in the social section of said contact page,
-Do not make money without my prior written consent (via email),
-Do not repost unedited art without stating it is unedited and linking to the image’s source in your repost,
-Do not repost unedited versions of my manuscript drafts,
-Do not post more than 1,000 words directly from any of my works,
-Do not change my characters’ sexual orientations for the explicit purpose of making them straight and/or cis in edits you make of my work,
-Check my Website Blacklist (end of page) for websites my art may not be posted on.
You may not use my work commercially. This includes, but is not limited to: posters and prints, ebook or print books, crafts, stickers, or any other work digital or physical that incurs a fee for the viewer or allows you to create profit (including ad revenue) or charge others. You may print a poster and distribute it for free, but you may not charge any money to the consumer; not even to cover the cost of the printing.
You may not repost or edit work that I have made available for a fee.
Do not use work commissioned or requested by other people without receiving the permission of the buyer.
Artwork received for free (“requests”) do not fall under this section and may not be used commercially without prior permission. Please see the “Free Artwork” section of my policy for more information on requests.
YCH sales, while considered commissions, have their own copyright policies (please see section below).
Art that has been paid for with art (referred to as “art trades”) are considered commissions and fall under the rules below with the buyer being referred to as the “commissioner”.
-Anything you commission is, after completed and paid for, owned by you. You are permitted to use, edit, repost, resell, etc, any commission that you have paid for and which involves characters that belong to you without crediting me in the description.
-Commissioners have sole responsibility for reposted artwork, and I have no obligation to assist the commissioner if it is used by a 3rd party.
-As copyright is owned by the commissioner, purchased images are exempt from my website blacklist and commissioners may repost the purchased art with no restrictions.
-Although copyright is given to the commissioner, if they are asked about the origin of the work a link to my website or online profile should be given and credit cannot be taken for the work’s creation.
-If a commissioner buys an image of someone else’s character the copyright for the artwork is transferred to the character owner and not the commissioner.
-Copyright is not transferred on cancelled commissions or commissions that have not been paid for within a reasonable amount of time (60 to 90 days) after the commission’s completion, and I keep the copyright to the art. Cancelled commissions may not be used for any purpose.
