What are the advantages of rights-managed licensing?

While the bargain-basement pricing of royalty-free photography may be alluring, rights-managed photography enables a level of quality, certainty and exclusivity that can be crucial for important projects.

  • Rights-managed licenses are clear, reliable and designed with your specific use in mind. In contrast, royalty-free images come with a massive list of complicated legal restrictions and it can be difficult to determine exactly what you can and cannot do with them.
  • Every rights-managed photograph has a fully-documented history. You can steer clear of images that have been used already in your geographical area or those that have been run by your competitors.
  • Various degrees of exclusivity can be bundled with your rights-managed license. For example, you can ensure that nobody in your geographical region (or even world-wide) will use the photograph at the same time that you are.

How do rights-managed licenses work?

The price of a rights-managed license is tailored to your precise needs, so determining a license cost typically relies upon understanding the specifics of your desired usage. These criteria include, but are not limited to:

  • image size
  • medium (print, online, etc)
  • area of distribution
  • location of placement (if applicable)
  • length of time for usage (“one print run”, “a permanent exhibit”, etc)
  • degree of exclusivity (optional)

If you’re interested in licensing some imagery, give these factors a bit of thought. Of course, I’ll be happy to guide you through the process of determining the license that works best for your needs.
