How do I seek permission to use a work of art?

Either send your request directly to the artist or contact Myndstef in view of a contract.


What is included in a permission to use a work of art?

The contract can be limited to individual uses, such as the publication of a painting or a photograph in a particular book. Special contracts may also allow for more extensive uses, such as inclusion in advertising campaigns (in newspapers or magazines, on packaging, on television etc.)


What if works of art are used without obtaining permission?

Such use is contrary to copyright law. Myndstef will take measures to protect the rights of the artist in question.
