Remix - the original image modified into a new work of art via remix, build upon, edit, collage, meme or other techniques. Placing the original artwork into a larger film is included in this definition of a remix.

Remix artist - the artist that is modifying the original Fountain artwork. This can be performed by a remix, alteration, meme or collage.

Tipping / Donation / Pay as you like - Use your best judgement, if your remix sells for very little don't waste transaction fees to pay the artist. Pay them with marketing, a social media post or blog. Wait until you sell many artwork / NFT and pay in a lump sum. Buy some of the artists art work. Pay it forward.

Attribution - means that Bård Ionson and the url to original artwork and others in the remix are listed as many as fit. If possible list artists names and art titles in the remix chain. If the list is long just list the original and the last artwork copied from. Publicly communicate your remix to @bardionson on Twitter & Instagram or other social media.

Significant changes - means that the remix artist has changed more than just enlargement or reduction in size or changing a few pixels. The changes must add new or alter meaning or context. Cropping portions is allowed.

A remix version can contain as many Fountain artworks as the remix artist wants but the artist and links to each Fountain artwork must be noted.

5. Remix License Share Alike Option
Remix artists have the option to include this Remix license with the remixed artwork. The remix version can only be used for commercial purposes by the remix artist. The remix product becomes the new original for terms of this license.
Optimally there would be a chain of linkages showing the pedigree of all artwork remixes from the parent to all the children and grandchildren.
But there are situations where the original Fountain art is such a small piece of the whole new artwork that share alike is not economically possible. Donations based on value of remixed work to the original and remix artists is suggested.

5. Video art in the Fountain Collection
The art videos in the Fountain collection can be used as individual frames or animation in a larger artwork.

6. AI/ML/Generative Recreations

The output from the model must be attributed and a link provided to the catalog of Fountain artwork. It is not necessary to list each artwork used in the model creation. The output and resulting model can be used for commercial purposes.
