We at ProAstrophotography.com provide images for sale by a number of photographers all around the world. All images are subject to copyright protection.

By paying the licensing fee, the customer acquires the non-exclusive, worldwide, non-transferable and non-sub-licensable right for usage of purchased images for his own information, illustration or advertising purposes. Other rights to the images, including copyrights, remain with ProAstrophotography.com and the photographer depending on the type of purchased license and the contractual agreement between the photographer and proastrophotography.com.
