Warning for fellow artists

Another company I like to add to my blacklist is ArtLicensing. Read your contract carefully. These are not nice people. One example on their site: “Artists receive 50% of all money received from other product licensing arrangements. Licensing royalties depend on the standard royalty for each product category.” What they don’t tell you is they make deals with clients for even 7% and they give you 50% of that 7%, so you will earn 3,5%. They are not lying but just don’t tell you the facts. Another example: I end my contract per march 2017. But somehow they have the right to renew the deals made during the contract period after the contract has expired. It’s in my contract, therefore my own fault. Again, Read your contract carefully!
