Freedom Porn:TFP and copyright

From Freedom Porn
Jump to: navigation, search

Time for Print (or sometimes Time for CD or Trade for CD) is the agreement between a model and the studio, where the model gets reimbursed for one's time with some number of photos from the photoshoot with the limited licence for them. The limitations of the licence vary drastically, but they will almost always limit the model in ways, which make the release of such photos under a free licence impossible.

Such arrangement, however, places very few restrictions on the studio as to how they will use such photos.

For models

If you are approached with the offer to do TFP (TFCD) photoshoot, you should feel completely within your right to be flattered, but insist that the photos that you receive are released to you not under a limited licence, but under one of the free licences (and keep in mind that Non-Commercial licences are not, by definition, free). Freedom Porn recommends Free Art License or Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 Unported, but other free licences will be acceptable for future distribution on this site.

For studios

If you wish to publish the content on Freedom Porn, you can do so. It is your responsibility (meaning that you must ensure) that the models understand that the photos will be distributed and they need to know what to expect from the photoshoot. Media that is obtained during the photoshoot by tricking the model into doing something one didn't agree to cannot be distributed here.

If, on the other hand, you have found the media that your studio has created, for which you did not authorise a release under a free licence; but it was, probably in error, put on this site by a model. Please do not hesitate to contact the administrator with sufficient information to determine what has happened.
