All rights to the image(s) are owned by Annie Lawson or the originator of the image and are protected by United Kingdom or appropriate local copyright laws, international treaty provisions and other applicable laws. The license will terminate automatically without notice from Annie Lawson should the image user fail to comply with any provision of this agreement.

For reasons of satirical comment or parody, artists may occasionally include in a cartoon ("the work"), a trademark, trading name, individual's name, otherwise copyrighted term or a feature of the rights of publicity of an individual (collectively "third party intellectual property"). While Annie Lawson has permission to license the original work, the permissibility of mentioning trademarks and other forms of third party intellectual property within the work depends on the specific use of the cartoon and the country/jurisdiction in which it is being used. Annie Lawson can never be aware of all case law and statute in all countries, therefore ensuring that use of a cartoon incorporating such third party intellectual property is acceptable in any specific context is the responsibility of the licensee and Annie Lawson does not give any warranty in this respect.

The image user shall, upon request provide a copy to Annie Lawson of any publication containing image(s) licensed from Annie Lawson.

NOTE: Any image licensed under a custom license agreement not listed above will be licensed under the pre-agreed terms.
