    Namely, Users will be able to decide:

    As "Selling Users" to transfer their own Content under license for use to other registered Users after downloading the Content by the "Buyer User"

    as “User Buyers”, to buy the licensing agreement of the loaded Contents upon the payment of a price for a Subcription

    All Users can have free access to the Content published on the Platform

    1. Gallerist does not in any way own the Content sold or purchased through its Platform, nor does it transfer the relevant content ownership from seller to buyer. Gallerist performs no role and is not in any way involved in the trade between its Users.
    2. Each User will be able, in particular, to upload their Content onto the Platform and organize it into Galleries, and will be able to publish it using the space provided by Gallerist. For each download of its Contents, the "Seller User" will be entitled to the amount of 1.00 Euro paid by the Platform. Thus, for example, for the download of a photo or a video by a Subscriber, Gallerist will pay the Contibutor the amount of 1.00 Euro.
    3. Whenever a User, having created or uploaded their content, decides to sell its license of use , they will be given the option to choose between one of the following types of license:

      a) License of use for commercial purposes: the content will be licensed exclusively/non-exclusively, for a limited/unlimited amount of time, worldwide; its use will be allowed for commercial as well as non- commercial purposes, and it will not be possible to create any derivative work.

      b) License of use for commercial purposes and derivative work: the content will be licensed exclusively/non-exclusively, for a limited/unlimited amount of time, worldwide; its use will be allowed for commercial as well as non-commercial purposes, and it will be possible to create derivative work.
