QuoteIllodeli.com: Pick your OwnIllodeli.com is a new online store which offers publishers the chance to buy artwork for their publications and immediately download it at print resolution.Illodeli.com features the work of industry illustrators Scotty Purdy, Andy Hepworth and Jon Hodgson.We have a range of work from full colour covers right down to black and white spot art, all at great prices, and unavailable anywhere else.Illodeli.com is launching in public beta mode, so currently our catalogue is a small selection of work, with plans for expansion on the immediate horizon. Regular updates are also in the pipeline, so check back often or sign up for our newsletter.Our licenses are extremely simple. Each purchase allows the non-exclusive single use within one product. This is the barest baseline of use we could come up with, which allows us to give the cheapest possible price. Our filler and spot art is sold under a wider license which allows reuse within one product. Which seemed only fair!
Quote from: jag on November 05, 2008, 01:17:36 PMExcellent idea, guys -- it fills a niche which is, in retrospect, blaring obvious and underserved.However, looking through the site I'm somewhat unsure of how far the Single Use license goes. You say:"When you buy a piece of art that is not a spot or filler piece, you can use it once in a single publication, including reprints of that publication."How about second editions/etc? With the move towards web/PDF publishing, the line between a reprint/edition is blurry -- things are constantly evolving tiny amounts, and it's not clear when the license would expire. Similarly, if i'm providing both an HTML and a PDF version of my book, can i use it on both? And the print version? Am i allowed to use it on a web page at all?James
