Licensing information

Thank you for your interest in licensing my photography or art. Rights to download to display, publish, distribute, transmit, or otherwise use my photography or art in any way must be acquired prior to any such use. Both Personal Licenses and Commercial Licenses are available for purchase, depending on the end-use.  You can purchase a license through this website by clicking the "Download" option when viewing an image, then select the appropriate license for your use, or you can contact me directly at orders@urbanmoon.ca. Please provide a link to the image you would like to purchase a license for and describe how you intend to use it. If you have any questions, please contact me.

Why you should obtain permission

There are many who do not even realize it is illegal to download and use copyrighted images. This intellectual property is protected by Copyright Law. Obtaining a license to use a photographer or artist's work is required under US,  Canadian, and other countries' Copyright Law, except under a few, very restricted circumstances.

If you wish to legally publish the work of a photographer or artist and not have to worry about copyright infringement, you will need to obtain permission. All of my photography and artwork is copyright protected. Usage is monitored; unauthorized usage is actively sought out by dedicated computers, detected, and aggressively dealt with to the full extent of the law.

Please keep in mind that art and photography is the only way I earn my living. "Stealing" my work by not obtaining a license, as other paying customers do, is akin to taking food from my table or necessities from my home. I need to earn a living as much as the next person in order to survive in this life. This is not my hobby or an extra income source. I have bills to pay, personal and business-related expenses, equipment and all the usual financial demands most anyone has. My work needs to support my business enterprise as well as me personally.

I am very grateful that most understand this and I thank you all for your understanding, patronage and appreciation of the work I do. If you ever have any questions, please contact me.
