Standard Progressive License

What does it mean when you permit content to ProgressiveErotica.com? What are your rights? What rights does ProgressiveErotica.com have?

As copyright owner you may use our default Standard Progressive License or a Creative Commons License. We provide a variety of options to empower you, the artist. If you are unsure, use our Standard Progressive License, which lets you retain the most rights. We are excited about the possibilities of the Creative Commons license and artists allowing use of derivatives so that work on the site can merge into more multimedia formats. For instance, if you permit a video, a music artist or poetry reader could use your video (with attribution) and add audio, or if you have a video but no audio, you could turn a poem from another artist on PE into accompanying audio.

Artist first

ProgressiveErotica.com strives to grant the artist as much freedom as the legal framework we live in allows. Essentially, you can share your work and art through ProgressiveErotica.com, and you still own it. ProgressiveErotica.com will never seek to restrict your use of your art; you may share it with other projects and you still own all the intellectual property rights.

When you permit your art, all you do is give ProgressiveErotica.com the right to display it on ProgressiveErotica.com, or in projects to promote ProgressiveErotica.com. That's it. Other than that? All you. You can own the intellectual property rights or sell the intellectual property rights or reject the whole frame work of intellectual property rights. You can permit your same art in other places if you like. We seek to impose freedoms, not limits.
