May I download information about "Kodak" branded products sold by The Company (the "Kodak Products") (text or images) for hard copy publication, e.g. catalogs, magazine articles, books, etc.?
The Company grants permission for use of Kodak Product information (text and images of Kodak Products) for catalogs and brochures promoting the sale of Kodak Products and for non-commercial research, educational or journalistic purposes such as newspaper and magazine articles and textbooks. All other uses are prohibited. This permission does not cover the right to use the image of any person shown in a product information image. The right to grant such permission belongs to the person shown and The Company is not able to grant such permission or to give any contact information about the person shown.
 
May I download Kodak Product information (text or images) for hard copy distribution to my customers?

May I use the Kodak Corporate Symbol or Kodak Logo on my Web Site or in printed material?
Kodak logo
No, the distinctive red-and-yellow design of this symbol is Eastman Kodak Company's and is only for use on Kodak's products and facilities. As such, the Corporate Symbol is intended only for use by Kodak and its licensees and is not to be used by others. In certain situations, we allow the usage of the Kodak name in its distinctive logo-type, for which written permission from Kodak is required prior to use.

Can I use The Company's Sample Digital Images on my Web Site?
No. The Company sells products and services for others to use in capturing and sharing high quality images, but The Company is not in the business of providing high quality images for use by others. That is the business of professional photographers and stock photo agencies, and we encourage you to obtain your images from those sources. The Sample Digital Images are provided on the Web Site as examples of high quality digital images that people can use to learn more about digital imaging by downloading them and using them on their desktop. They are not intended for redistribution.
 
OK, then what CAN I do with the Sample Digital Images?
As stated in the Website Terms of Use: You may download, reprint and manipulate the Sample Images for this purpose (in order to understand the capabilities of the camera or other product that captured the image), but you may not change the composition of the image, and you may not use the manipulated image for commercial purposes.
