We, Justin & Erica, have decided to release our Rogue Images (except where otherwise noted) under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

This allows you to share our work around the world instead of us hoarding it here at 1 domain. Our licensing policies are thus designed to balance the costs that go into creating and sharing our images with the desire to provide inspiration through our images on the internet and around the world.

We allow use of Rogue Images in 2 ways:

1. Creative Commons License

With Creative Commons you are free:

-To Share: Copy, Distribute, and Transmit the image
-To Remix: Create Derivative works of the image

Under these conditions:

-Attribution: Attribution to Justin & Erica Watters and a link to Rogue Images must be made along with the image.
-Non-Commercial: The image must not be used for commercial purposes under any circumstances. For clarity on what defines commercial use, please see the Sample Accepted Uses below.
-Share Alike: If you alter, transform, or build upon this work, you may distribute the resulting work only under the same or similar license to this one.

-Sample Accepted Use of the CC License

2. License to Copyright

‘Commercial Use’ regarding the use of images online or offline is defined very broadly. The determination of commercial or non-commercial use is based on the contextual use of the image. The determination is NOT based on the tax-filing status of the entity using the image nor on whether or not a financial transaction takes place.

Commercial use of our images is allowed only if expressly granted by Rogue Images. All commercial uses will incur a licensing fee. Our fees are based on the following criteria:

-Media – print, web, television, etc.
-Distribution Size – number of copies printed, viewing audience size, exposure (regional, national, international)
-Length of Use – 1 year, 2 years, etc.
-Prominence of Display – 1/4 page, 1/2 page, full page, spread, front cover, back cover, home page (online), interior page (online), etc.

All licensing inquiries should be sent to:

-Sample Use Requiring License to Copyright

-A marketing campaign for a commercial entity
-A fund-raising campaign for a not-for profit entity
-A background image for a website about furniture
-License to create an individual print for use in a private home
