Licencing and what it actually means

Sometimes people can find the whole area of licensing and copyright very confusing. In simple terms
Copyright is about who owns the images. For further information on Copyright Click here
Licensing is about who has the right to reproduce the images.

 

Traditional licensing

This can be both Non-exclusive or Exclusive and means that the image is licensed for a specific purpose or use.

 

Non-exclusive

The buyer pays a licence fee each time they use the image. Be aware that another buyer can also purchase and use the same image however, hence ‘Non-Exclusive’
The buyer must specify, each time: intended use, media, territory and duration.
Pricing is based on intended use, media, duration and territory.

 

Exclusive

The buyer pays a licence fee each time they use the image.
The buyer obtains exclusive use of an image under the terms of the licence: these terms may affect the use, media, territory and/or duration in which the image can by used by other buyers.
Rights protection can be an advantage for high-profile projects such as ad campaigns and promotions.
Pricing for this type of licence varies and very much depends on the terms for the image use being requested.
If ‘exclusivity’ is required then you should typically expect to pay between 25-40% more to guarantee an exclusive licence against the image / images for the period agreed, normally 6 months.

*Please note that where an image is already under ‘exclusive’ licence the completion date of this licence is shown in the gallery view for that item.

Please mail us with the image (s) details including site reference number and include details of your requirements, we will then contact you quickly with availability and price.

 

Royalty Free licensing

This is the simplest form of licensing and the price is driven by the actual image file size to be provided.
*Please note that not all John Robinson Images are Royalty Free.
As a customer you will pay a one-off fee. You are not required to pay royalties to John Robinson on the use-by-use basis.
Be aware however this type of license in NOT exclusive and you will not know who else is using the image.

 

Typical Royalty Free Image Rates

SMALL 1Mb 72dpi Typically 6″x10″ (RGB) £120

MEDIUM 10Mb 300dpi Typically 5″x7″ (RGB) £250

LARGE 28Mb 300dpi Typically 9″x12″ (RGB) £340

SUPER 48Mb 300dpi Typically 11″x17″ (RGB) £480

 

Model and Property Release

Please note that you will be required to state intended use and under what format regardless of license as some images may require a ‘release’ to be presented. A model release or property release is a written agreement between the model or property owner and the photographer where the model or property owner has granted the photographer permission to use the photographs commercially. Releases generally permit the use of the image or images for all purposes. However there are exception where the use could be deemed controversial, sensitive or defamatory. However it is your responsibility to decide if a model and/or a property release is necessary for the intended image use.
