We hope you’ll agree that our collaboration feature sets Artrepreneur apart from all other art-related online services. Through this feature, you can invite someone – registered or otherwise, to be listed as a contributor on a piece of artwork that you have uploaded onto the Artrepreneur Site. Of course, only someone who registers with us will be able to list himself or herself as a contributor. Once someone accepts an invitation to contribute to an artwork for which you’re listed as the “administrator,” or you as an administrator accept a request for someone to be a contributor, that work will be available on the contributor’s artwork page, which can then be accessed on the contributor’s portfolios and shown to Artrepreneur members or anyone with the link to that artwork, whether received via a search engine or sent directly. A contributor will continue to have rights to display the artwork on his or her own Artrepreneur page even after you have terminated your membership or asked us to delete your personal information.
Only an admin can make changes to the details of a work. Should a contributor want to add information or make changes, he or she should contact the administrator of the work, or make a request to the administrator to have the artwork transferred to you. An admin transfer can only occur if the admin accepts the request and initiates the transfer. If you are the copyright holder and the admin refuses to transfer admin control of an image to you as the legally entitled copyright holder, the appropriate procedure is to initiate a DMCA takedown request and upload the image to your account where you will be the admin for that image.
