A question for Leo on Terms and Conditions.
Hi Leo can clear this up for me which one is correct?? I need to know as I have an interested third party that want's to use my pix on a CD cover. Many Thanks
On this page it mentions "exclusive rights"
Yet on this page it says "non-exclusive rights" which is correct?? Sorry I'm bit confused here.
