The Primary Owner shall remain free to exploit or not to exploit the rights thus assigned under the
trademark or name of its choice, subject to compliance with the provisions of this Agreement.
Creator agrees that the full price of transfer of the above-listed rights is included in the Purchase Price,
as defined hereinafter.

Assignment. Consequently, the Creator may only use the Art with the prior consent of the Owner.
The Primary Owner and, where applicable, all subsequent Owners, shall have the right to Resale the
Purchased NFT, and related Art, on a marketplace allowing the purchase and sale of NFTs. The Owner

Owner agrees to assign to the subsequent buyer of the Purchased NFT all rights on the related Art
detailed in Article 3 of this Agreement, under the same conditions, to the extent such rights have not
been previously transferred to a third-party in compliance with the Agreement.

thereof, shall remain in force and fully effective after the Resale, unless otherwise agreed upon between
the Owner and the subsequent buyer.
This Agreement shall govern any Resale as long as it is still attached to the Purchased NFT and
provided no other agreement has been concluded between the Owner and the subsequent buyer, which
shall only apply between the parties of said agreement.

Primary Assignment, or to the subsequent Owners, as per a Secondary Assignment, are granted in
consideration of the price paid by the Owner to purchase the Purchased NFT, as listed on the NFT
marketplace on which it is acquired (the “Purchase Price”), where applicable, which shall be deemed
fixed and definitive.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Creator shall also be entitled to a compensation on any Resale of
the Purchased NFT in accordance with the percentage of commission determined by the NFT
marketplace on which said Resale is completed.

to grant to either party any right, title or interest in or to the other party’s trademarks.

endorsing, recommending or favoring, in any way whatsoever, the Owner and/or its use of the Art.
