How our licensing terms work
A rights-managed license is when the use of an image is limited in one or more ways, for instance, geographically or regarding the time period.
A rights-managed license also typically means that the licensee purchases the license for one-time use and another round of agreement and paying licensing fees will be required if they want to continue using the given image. This could include that the client gains exclusive rights for the usage during the license period.
- Editorial and commercial or retail use.
- Print, online, film/tv, advertising, etc.
- Geographic regions.
Time frames (2-5 years being industry standard).
Image use past the time frame of the license is not permitted and requires a new/renewed license.
The attribution of the photographer-Constance Bannister Corp.
It’s common practice to place the photographer’s name next to the image.
The right to edit: the scope of image editing permitted to the client using the image is limited and must be agreed upon at the time of licensing.
Sublicensing is not permitted.
The fee the client must pay for using the image is based on the license agreed upon.
