Welcome to Art2P0, the premier website for buying and selling digital images. Upon purchase, each image is digitally watermarked and copy-protected using state-of-the-art encryption. The image is assigned a unique registry number and it, along with its legal owner’s information are registered with the Digital Fine Art Association (DFAA). When the image is resold, the next purchaser is also registered with the DFAA. DFAA stores all ownership information on every sold image, so that provenance and the ownership trail is retained. When a person chooses to purchase an image, the image is delivered via secure email once payment is verified and confirmed

ARTISTS
Creators of original digital images (artists, photographers, etc.) upload their images to the website as available for sale. Each image must be previously copyrighted by the artist. Title, date created, and artist are all digitally embedded into each image. A brief description of the work, if desired, accompanies each piece. There is a limit of 10 images per artists unless a premium member. A commission of currently 15% of the selling price is charged to the artist on each sale. Art2po absorbs all other charges including credit card fees.

BUYERS/COLLECTORS
Buyers/collectors may browse the website and search for images using a wide range of parameters. A full-screen version of the image can be seen for optimal viewing. Upon deciding upon a purchase, the buyer must register with Art2P0 if not already a member. Art2P0 will charge a fee currently of $4.95 for each purchase, for the purpose of registration with the DFAA.


If an owner wishes to resell an image, s/he must simply upload it to the website per the instructions, entering the desired price. As the image is already registered and tagged, and the owner recognized, nothing else needs to be done. As with artists, a commission of 15% of the selling price is charged to the seller on each sale. If a collector wishes to remain anonymous to the general public, DFAA will keep their information secure for a $25 fee. If another collector wished to purchase an image owned by ‘anonymous’, they can contact the owner through a secure channel which does not divulge owner’s information.


GALLERIES
Galleries may buy and sell individual images and collections on behalf of artists, given that they have the artist’s authorization and the images are copyrighted. Galleries will receive a reduced rate for multiple images. As the website grows, premium member galleries will be able to take advantage of accumulated sales data to refine their artist and customer bases for optimum revenue generation.
