Our Light Field Picture Player
Our light field picture player and other software included with the Lytro camera and Lytro desktop application are subject to the Lytro, Inc. Software License Agreement.
Lytro.com contains both Lytro content and user content. The content on Lytro.com and any authorized copies are licensed, not sold. Such content is protected by copyright laws and, if applicable, by international treaties.
- View the Lytro content on Lytro.com;
- Utilize the light field functionality of Lytro content by using our light field picture player or another player approved by us. You may create modifications or derivative works and print Lytro content for your personal use. Modifications, derivative works and printing for non-personal use (for example, commercial or political) require our explicit prior consent.
- Copy, transmit, distribute, upload, embed, or display Lytro content, provided that if you do so for non-personal purposes (for example, commercial or political) you must preserve and include all copyright, trademark, service mark, attribution, and other proprietary rights notices displayed on or with such Lytro content.
- You may never do any of the things allowed by this license if your act, as determined by us: (1) is otherwise unlawful or in violation of any court or administrative order; (2) is harmful to anyone else; or (3) suggests we promote or endorse your, or any third party's, causes, ideas, websites, products, or services.
The Lytro content and any authorized copies are the intellectual property of Lytro and its licensors. The Lytro content and all of its copies are licensed, not sold. The Lytro content is protected by applicable law, including United States and foreign copyright laws and international treaties.
User content is the content posted on Lytro.com by our users and visitors. It includes users’ living pictures, users’ and visitors’ comments to living pictures and to other content on Lytro.com, and any other materials posted by users or visitors on Lytro.com. Users may upload living pictures on Lytro.com as “public” or “unlisted.” Public pictures can be viewed and shared by all Lytro.com visitors and users and are searchable on Lytro.com and by third-party search engines such as Google. Unlisted pictures can be viewed and shared by the user who uploaded them and by others who know the link to the pictures. The recipients of a link from the user can further forward it or publicly post it. Anyone who knows the link is able to access the unlisted pictures on Lytro.com and can further “like” or share them on third-party sites such as Facebook. Unlisted pictures exposed in this way may show up in search indices and become easily discoverable by people who do not have the link to them. As such, the privacy of unlisted pictures is not in our control, and users should take reasonable precautions with posting and sharing their pictures.
We do not claim ownership of your living pictures; they are yours. To enable us to operate Lytro.com and provide its services and functionality, with respect to content that you submit to Lytro.com you grant us a non-exclusive, fully-paid, royalty-free, worldwide, sublicensable and transferable license to:
- Copy, store, display, and distribute such content;
- Utilize the light field functionality of such content by using our light field picture player or another player approved by us;
- To the extent this functionality is enabled by you, share such content on other websites and applications, including our social channels such as Facebook and Twitter;
- Display the Lytro trademark with such content; and
- Display and feature in public areas of Lytro.com, at our discretion, certain of your public living pictures selected by us.
With respect to user content on Lytro.com that has not been uploaded by you, we grant you the following non-exclusive, fully-paid, royalty-free, worldwide, revocable, personal license to:
- View such content;
- Utilize the light field functionality of such content, but only by using our light field picture player on Lytro.com or another player approved by us; and
- To the extent this functionality is enabled by the account owner, share such content on other websites and applications.
- If you would like to otherwise use any users’ living pictures posted on Lytro.com, please contact the user directly to obtain their consent. See also “Conduct” below, which prohibits commercial use of Lytro.com without our permission.
If your jurisdiction recognizes “moral rights” in copyright works, you agree to waive (or, if waiver is not possible, not assert) such moral rights against us and Lytro.com users and visitors with respect to conduct authorized by the licenses above.
We reserve the right to refuse to post or to remove or delete any user content on Lytro.com, at our discretion and with or without notice. When you delete your living pictures from Lytro.com, we will remove them from your account view and other public areas on Lytro.com as soon as possible, and in any event within 48 hours unless there are unforeseen circumstances. Residual copies may remain on our servers for up to 90 days.
