It is also possible to pay through bank transfer. In case you prefer this option, I will send you the bank details.

DELIVERY

I will role the paintings carefully in a tube and send it to your address through EMS (Expedited Mail Service). EMS is reliable and the only complaint I received was around Christmas 2010 when all major airports in Europe were closed due to heavy snow! All tubes arrived safely to its customers. It is free to post the paintings. The delivery takes around 5 days but please allow to wait up to three weeks. One time I sent the paintings to Florida on Friday afternoon and my friend Todd received the tube on Monday morning! 3 days is fantastically short time if you consider that the tube was sent from Sub-saharan Africa! I should also tell you that the tube may come to hands of curious custom officers when it arrives to your country. They may or not may ask to pay custom fee, it all depends on your country´s law. Once you receive the tube, remove the paintings and send them to gallery shop for framing. That´s easy!

Disclaimer: The photographs of the paintings are nothing else than photographs and the colours may vary slightly. But the red remains red and the blue remains blue. Didn´t you ever argue with your friend if the color is blue or grey? The colours vary also depending on your computer screen. But since you can return the painting for no reason within 7 days, this does not need to be an issue.

WHAT PROTECTS THE TINGA TINGA IMAGES?

The so called Tanzania Copyright and Neighbouring Rights Act, 1999 gives the artists copyright control over their artworks.

It is not required by Tanzanian Copyright Law that the painter must register the painting with authorities in order to claim the copyright. The artist acquires the copyright automatically simply when the artwork is completed.

However, the Tinga Tinga artists do frequently register the paintings with Copyright Society of Tanzania (COSOTA) to have legal proof copyright and are registered with National Arts Council of Tanzania (BASATA) which also supports the artists´ rights.

ARE THE IMAGES COPYRIGHTED INTERNATIONALLY?

There is no such thing as an “international copyright” that will automatically protect the artwork throughout the entire world. However, most countries do offer protection to foreign works under international copyright treaties and conventions. One of the most important conventions initiated by WIPO is Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works which was signed by 164 countries.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I BUY A PAINTING?

When original work of art is sold, the purchaser is buying the actual painting. No reproduction rights pass to the retainer. The artist retains the copyright.

I WANT TO PRINT POSTCARDS!

Even if you bought the original painting, you must seek permission from the copyright owner to reproduce the image of the painting. This is done by means of licensing agreement with the artist and Tinga Tinga Cooperative.

WHO OWNS COPYRIGHT TO EDWARD TINGATINGA'S PAINTINGS?

According to Tanzania Copyright and Neighbouring Rights Act, 1999, the copyright lasts for 50 years after the artwork was completed. After artist´s death the copyright passes to heirs. In case of old Tingatinga paintings created by E.S.Tingatinga, the heirs are his children Daudi and Martina Tingatinga.

MAY I USE IMAGES FROM TINGA TINGA STUDIO IN ARTICLE ABOUT TINGA TINGA?

The text and images from Tinga Tinga Studio may be reviewed, reproduced or translated for research or private study but not for use with commercial purposes. If your article is published in any commercial newspaper, magazine or book, then you must seek permission. Any use of text or images should be accompanied by an acknowledgment as the source. Citing the uniform resource locator (URL), Tinga Tinga Cooperative and the name of artist is sufficient. Reproduction of substantial portions of Tinga Tinga Studio Website or any use other than non-commercial purposes, requires explicit authorization in writing. Enquiries should be addressed to Daniel@TANART.org

WHY SHOULD I WORRY ABOUT COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT?

Infringement of copyright may result in damages, lawsuits, costly legal fees and under some rare circumstances, criminal charges.

WHO WILL FIND "MY" IMAGE ON THE INTERNET?

New technology enables copyright owners to identify unlicensed imagery and act to protect their rights. Imagery is ‘fingerprinted’ so that it can be tracked and found in use, even if it has been modified, recreated or if only part of the image has been used.

I AM USING IMAGE WHICH I FOUND THROUGH GOOGLE. IS IT FREE THEN?

No. Just because an image is on the internet doesn’t mean the image is free to use.

I AM JUST A BLOGGER. CAN I USE IMAGES FOR FREE?

In most cases "no" unless your use is specifically permitted by copyright law. All images on your website must be properly licensed, regardless of the nature of your site.
