Licensing Agreement

Jantoo is a trading name of CartoonStock Ltd, registered in England number 3616885

We want you to be as free to use Jantoo cartoons as possible, but our artists need to earn a living, so certain larger scale commercial uses are not permitted under this license.

If your use is not permitted, please contact us for custom pricing.

Jantoo and our artists make no warranties and accept no liability whatsoever in respect of uses of altered versions of our image(s) after they have been licensed from Jantoo. Any alterations made must comply within the provisions of this agreement. Changes outside of these terms will automatically deem the license to be invalid.

All rights to the image(s) licensed from Jantoo are owned by Jantoo or the originator of the image and are protected by United Kingdom or appropriate local copyright laws, international treaty provisions and other applicable laws. No degree of modification of the image(s) will affect ownership of the rights therein or imply any transfer of rights to the licensee or any third party. The license will terminate automatically without notice from Jantoo should the image user fail to comply with any provision of this agreement.

If you wish to credit the source of the image, the following wording should be displayed in the immediate vicinity of the image(s): "© Artist Name, Jantoo.com".

All rights to the image(s) are owned by Jantoo or the originator of the image and are protected by United Kingdom or appropriate local copyright laws, international treaty provisions and other applicable laws. The license will terminate automatically without notice from Jantoo should the image user fail to comply with any provision of this agreement.

For reasons of satirical comment or parody, artists may occasionally include in a cartoon, a trademark, trading name, individual's name, otherwise copyrighted term or a feature of the rights of publicity of an individual (collectively "third party intellectual property"). While Jantoo has permission to license the original work, the permissibility of mentioning trademarks and other forms of third party intellectual property within the work depends on the specific use of the cartoon and the country/jurisdiction in which it is being used. Jantoo can never be aware of all case law and statute in all countries, therefore ensuring that use of a cartoon incorporating such third party intellectual property is acceptable in any specific context is the responsibility of the licensee and Jantoo does not give any warranty in this respect.

Any disputes relating to this agreement will be subject to the jurisdiction of a United Kingdom court, or a United Kingdom based arbitrator if both parties agree arbitration is a suitable method of dispute resolution.

The parties to this agreement are the image user (the person or entity named when buying Jantoo credits) and CartoonStock Ltd trading as Jantoo which acts as agent for the artist in licensing the image(s), except in the case of our vintage cartoons in which case Jantoo are licensing use of our copy of the image and do not represent the original artist or their estate.
