Recently I was contacted by a marketing company located in the UK via email who wanted to reproduce some of my works as Giclees on paper and canvas for resale. My knowledge of copyright and licensing is somewhat ok, but does anyone have any experience with this?
The company is Trendy-Art and I am trying to gather as much info as I can. Any help about licensing or this company would be great.
I pasted the licensing agreement below I just deleted the contact's name. It seems pretty basic, but I would like a fair opinion from the community.
