Artwork Data Tag Notice

The same rights still apply to artwork containing the data tag notice of copyright.

No Speculative Work Notice

Artistic License now supports No!Spec, an organisation set out to highlight and promote the need to pay artists for their work and not expect or demand sample work prior to payment. For this reason, Artistic License supports a 30-50% payment deposit before any work begins. Any artwork Artistic License feels able to place under the creative commons standard, then will be available under this marker and visible as such on the website, unless marked with the creative commons sign, all work on this site and the site itself are copyright protected.
