Hiring an Artist for Commission

At this time, Artist commission transactions must take place completely off site and should be handled solely between the artist (seller) and the member requesting the commission (buyer).

ComixCentral only provides prospective buyers with a list of members who have offered their services as artists. ComixCentral does not vet this list in anyway, therefore it is up to the buyer to research the artist, making themselves familiar with the artist’s work. ComixCentral is not liable for any broken agreements or damages.

If artist and buyer come to an agreement and a piece of art is commissioned, it is the sole responsibility of the seller to:

  • Come to an agreement on the price of commissioned piece
  • collect deposit (if requested)
  • complete commission
  • collect payment (as per agreement)
  • package and ship commission (as per agreement)
  • handle any returns or refunds (as per agreement)

In order to create a record of the transaction, we recommend communicating via either CXC site mail or your own email. We would also encourage artists and buyers to draft a contract.

If you require assistance in negotiating Art Commissions, we suggest reaching out in the CXC Forums.

Intellectual Property Policy

This information is not legal advice. You are responsible for any use of this information. ComixCentral strongly urges you to consult an attorney to fully understand your rights.

ComixCentral adopted this intellectual property policy in accordance with industry best practices, general intellectual property laws, and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

ComixCentral takes intellectual property rights very seriously. We comply with intellectual property laws and industry best practices in order to maintain the integrity of our creative marketplace. This Intellectual Property Policy explains how we address allegations of infringement, how authorised parties can submit proper notices of infringement regarding content on our marketplace, and how ComixCentral vendors can respond when their listings or shops are affected by a notice.

Notices of Intellectual Property Infringement

ComixCentral strives to respond quickly when we receive proper notice of intellectual property infringement by removing or disabling access to the allegedly infringing material. When ComixCentral removes or disables access in response to a notice, we will make a reasonable attempt to contact the allegedly infringing party, provide information about the notice and removal, and, in cases of alleged copyright infringement, provide information about counter notification. ComixCentral may also provide a copy of the notice to the allegedly infringing party.

Reporting intellectual property infringement

If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please provide ComixCentral the written information specified below at the address indicated. Please note that this procedure is exclusively for notifying ComixCentral that your copyrighted material has been infringed. You must send this information to ComixCentral via [email protected]

  1. An electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright interest;
  2. A description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed upon;
  3. A description of where the material you claim is infringing is located on the site;
  4. Your address, telephone number, and e-mail address;
  5. A statement by you that you have a good-faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law;
  6. A statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your notice is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf.

Once ComixCentral receives a claim of intellectual property infringement, the material will be suspended from ComixCentral.com immediately. A notification of the claim is then sent to the party in question. The accused will be given 10 days to respond with a counter claim of infringement.  In the case that no counter claim is issued, the material stated in the infringement claim will be permanently removed from the ComixCentral database, and the member will receive notice of the removal.

ComixCentral does not pursue legal action on behalf of any party involved in an intellectual property dispute. If you are interested in pursuing legal action or would like to learn more about your rights in the Comic Book medium we would encourage you to visit The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.

Submitting a counter notice to a claim of infringement against you

Use this information to counter a copyright infringement notice submitted against you.

If you have a good faith belief that you received a copyright infringement notice under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. (“DMCA”) as a result of a mistake or misidentification, you may consider submitting a counter notice.

ComixCentral only accepts counter notices from the intellectual property owner or an authorised representative. (In other words: if you don’t own the IP or have been authorised to act on behalf of the owner, you may not submit a counter notice)

The intellectual property owner or the authorised representative must email [email protected] directly to submit a counter notice to the claim of infringement against you.

The communication must clearly identify the relevant material (such as by providing the relevant username, shop name, blog post, image url and/or product listing URLs) etc.

Your counter notice must be sent in an email to [email protected] and contain the following:

  1. Your signature – signatures may be provided electronically by typing your name
  2. Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled – please provide the ComixCentral URL to each item before it was removed or disabled
  3. A statement made under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material
  4. Your name, address, telephone number and email address, and a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal Court for the judicial district in which you are located.

Once ComixCentral confirms that the counter notice includes all of the information required by the DMCA, Comixcentral will email both parties: the member submitting the counter notice and the party who submitted the initial infringement claim. ComixCentral will provide a copy of the counter notice to the party who submitted the initial infringement claim, who may use the information to obtain a court order to restrain you from reactivating the material.

Counter Notification

If ComixCental receives a DMCA counter notification, the removed material may be replaced or access to it may be restored 10 business days after receipt of the counter notice, unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the allegedly infringing party and informs ComixCentral of this action. ComixCentral sends a copy of the counter notice to the original complaining party.

If you have any questions or concerns, please consult an attorney. You may also consider communicating directly with the party who filed the initial infringement claim. ComixCentral will include their contact information in the email informing you of the infringement.

Pursuing Legal Action

ComixCentral does not pursue legal action on behalf of any party involved in an intellectual property dispute. If you are interested in pursuing legal action or would like to learn more about your rights in the comicbook medium we would encourage you to visit The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.

The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund is a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting the First Amendment rights of the comics medium.
