1. How is my IP protected?

You can protect your IP through physical, technical, and legal methods. At RevArt, we provide services for each of those three methods:

  1. We store your image in our safe server and prevent others from downloading them for free.
  2. We use blockchain and watermark technology to prove you are the owner of your IP.
  3. We collaborate with the world’s best attorneys to provide related services.
2. How will I market my IP?

RevArt will help you. We will use our algorithm to match the IP with different brands. We also have in-house art experts to facilitate the process. Naturally, we will promote as many artists as possible through social media (Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, and WeChat) and offline channels (trade shows and industry conferences).

3. How will I manage my IP?

We help manage your IP. We act as your art consultants, but we are less expensive and more effective because we also empower the art industry by using technology.

4. Do I need to sell my IP?

No. You are the IP owner and you license the IP to RevArt for a certain period of time to be used in certain fields. RevArt is your personal IP manager and helps you license the IP to brands. The brands will have access to use your IP for a certain period of time or under specific conditions.

5. Does RevArt need an exclusive licensing right to my IP?

It is not necessary for the beginning. We want to ensure artists are exposed to as many brands as possible through our platform during the matching process. When brands choose to use your IP, we will need exclusive licensing rights with your work because 1. Usually, the brand will demand exclusive rights during the collaboration, and 2. RevArt will invest more resources in order to expand your IP to other industries and markets in order to create more opportunities for future collaborations.

6. How will RevArt pay for the artists after licensing out the IP?

We will split the royalty or commission fee. In most cases, it will be a 50/50 split. Artists can choose to be paid monthly/ quarterly/ after the contract completion.

7. Who owns the rights to my IP after licensing it out?

You are the IP owner. If you sign a licensing agreement with RevArt, we own the right to manage your IP. If a brand signs an agreement to lease the IP, it holds the right to use IP within restrictions.

8. Do I have the right to price my IP?

Yes, you do. But as your IP manager, RevArt will use data and industry knowledge to find the optimal pricing strategy for artists to negotiate with the brand.

9. Can I use a nickname for my IP and related collaboration?

Yes, some artists prefer a nickname for commercial collaboration. We can help you manage it just like a luxury company manages different brands targeting different consumers.

1. What should I do during the collaboration?

The only thing you need to do is sign up and provide information. RevArt will promote you in the market and take care of the communication and operation with brands. However, we expect that you engage more when we communicate with brands, as we might need your approval of your IP usage. We ask for your involvement because we want you to feel comfortable and satisfied with the collaboration.

2. Can I drop out if I change my mind?

Yes, you can before you sign the collaboration agreement with a brand. If you want to drop out after signing the agreement, it will depend on your specific contract. We might ask several questions before you drop out to hear your feedback and to improve our service to future artists.

3. Who can I contact if I still have questions about working with RevArt?

Please email contact@revart.co to schedule a 30-minute free consultation to clear up any further questions you might have. Thanks!
