Geoectomy-stock Usage Terms of Use
Updated 2012-JUL-08

Our stock is not free.  You pay for its' use by crediting us.  Your use of any image under the geoectomy-stock account constitutes acceptance of the following terms:

1) Use of Images
These images are not to be used as content in and of themselves.  You may not use these images for any work which glorifies the discrimination of race, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, or cruelty to animals.  We reserve the right to deny stock-usage should the finished product contravene these directions.  We are not unreasonable, and we understand the difference between social commentary and glorification.

2) Attribution 3.0 Unported (CC BY 3.0)
The stock images offered here are licensed under a  Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported (CC BY 3.0) License.  Please make sure you understand what this means.  

3) Commercial Uses
You may use our images for commercial ventures that do not exceed a print-run of 99 copies.  Please contact me by email at: for larger commercial ventures.
  1. DeviantART Prints - If you are offering derivative work as DeviantART prints, you do not need to ask permission.  We still want the credit, though!
  2. External Use (Outside DeviantART - You may post artworks our images in derivatives outside of DeviantART, provided that a credit is clearly displayed on or near the image, including a URL or link to my DeviantArt profile ( geoectomy-stock ) and that we are shown all pages where our stocks has been used (in any capacity, including WIP's and detail shots)

4) Personal Use for Stock-Provider and Models Involved
The photographer/stock-provider and models who's likeness appear in your works reserve the right to use your derivative work to promote our own services (and yours) both in and outside of DeviantART. This may result in, but is not limited to, links to your work in various social media sites and inclusion in model-portfolios. You will be properly credited in such uses. In no way will your material be used for direct profit unless discussed with you beforehand.

Pleased be advised that I will be revising prior posts to reflect this current set of stock rules, so that all images posted under this account fall under this new set of guidelines.
