This is a legal agreement between you and Raven Glass Studio and its minions, lackeys and henchmen.  This Agreement states the terms and conditions upon which Raven Glass Studio offers to license the artwork, together with its frames, matts, stands or other items associated with the artwork.
1. License
   The artwork is licensed, not sold, to you for viewing only under the terms of this Agreement.  You own the glass or other media from which the artwork is made, but Raven Glass Studio retains all title and ownership to the artwork and reserves all rights not expressly granted to you.
2. For Use By A Single Viewer
   The artwork may be viewed by only a single person at any time.  You may allow another person to view the artwork so long as this person is standing reasonably close to you (within one (1) meter) and you close your eyes while this person is viewing the artwork.  Should you buy a new home, you may transfer the artwork to this new home providing you destroy your previous home and there is no possibility that the artwork could be viewed by more than one person at any time.
3. Copyright
   The artwork is owned by Raven Glass Studio and/or its minions, lackeys and henchmen, and is protected by a large, violent person named “Vinny” and rabid dogs with very sharp teeth.
4. One Archival Copy
   You may make one (1) archival copy of the artwork for backup purposes only in support of your personal viewing of the artwork, providing you reproduce the artwork on cheap paper at no more than twenty (20) dots per inch.
5. Transfer Of License
   You may transfer your license to the artwork, provided that (a) you agree to never look at the artwork again, (b) you do not retain any portion of the artwork or copy thereof and (c) the transferee agrees to be bound by the terms of this Agreement by signing it in his/her own blood and returning it to Raven Glass Studio.
6. Reverse Engineering
   You may not de-compile, reverse engineer or dissassemble the artwork.  Redistribution of the artwork in whole or in part is strictly forbidden.  You may not use parts of the artwork, or any copies thereof, in new artwork that you produce.  
7. Translation
    Translation of the artwork into another language, media or concept is strictly forbidden.  Any inspiration you derive from the artwork remains the property of Raven Glass Studio and its minions, lackeys and henchmen.  Distribution of opinions about the artwork without the express written consent of Raven Glass Studio is a violation of this License Agreement, and the mere existence of thoughts relative to the artwork in you brain may constitute the need for a visit from Vinny.
LIMITED WARRANTY
   Raven Glass Studio warrants that the artwork furnished is, in fact, artwork.  No minion, lackey, henchman or other entity is authorized to give you any better deal than this.  Raven Glass Studio does not warrant that viewing the artwork will in any way do you any good whatsoever, or that the artwork is free from symbols, images or depictions that might be disturbing or even drive you nuts.  Except as stated above in this Agreement, the artwork is provided as-is without warranty of any kind, either express or implied.  Raven Glass Studio is not obligated to explain it to you or provide any education, insight or art training.  Further, Raven Glass Studio shall not be liable for any information provided by Raven Glass Studio, its minions, lackeys or henchmen or anyone else, or any damages caused by viewing the artwork including (but not limited to) loss of hair, teeth or sanity.  However, should you decided that the artwork is not suitable for your viewing you may return it to Raven Glass Studio for a full refund on the purchase price providing you can prove to the satisfaction of Raven Glass Studio that the artwork being returned has never been viewed by you or anyone else.
 
No, this isn’t for real; it was inspired by reading some software licenses.  But artists and writers are encouraged to insert their names as appropriate and use this Agreement as needed.  Hey, maybe we’ll all become as rich as Bill Gates!
