Guidelines for Posting Kristle’s work
Proper Etiquette for Social Media
Kristle Studio differentiates between individual fans who share her work, to businesses that, whether directly or indirectly, profit off of their social media content – including posts that are not an ad.
Individuals are welcome to digitally share any work, as long as they properly credit Kristle Studio, and don’t edit the image in any way (no cropping, deleting or editing and cropping of artist signature).
Businesses should seek direct permission prior to posting, and are only free to share creative work when the mere purpose of the post is to support and showcase the artist. Proper credit should be given in the first two lines of the caption. Proper credit implies tagging the creator alongside an explanation that would tie Kristle Studio to the image, for example: ‘art by @kristlestudio or www.kristlestudio.com’.
In all cases where artwork is used for commercial goods, promotion of services, or monetary gain, expressed consent from the artist is required. This also includes digitally edited copies or other personal photographs. Commercial goods include but are not limited to websites, t shirts, magazines, and social media content.
Kristle Studio owns all copyrights in any and all work(s) the artist creates or produces pursuant to federal copyright law (Title 17, Chapter 2, Section 201-02 of the United States Code), whether registered or unregistered. Any and all products, whether tangible or intangible, produced or created in connection with this website and social media platforms are expressly and solely owned by the artist and may only be used by Kristle Studio unless expressed consent is given.
