Get the Full Picture of Storyblocks’ Licensing


We surveyed our users and we’ve heard you loud and clear. You want to do the right thing when it comes to stock media licensing, but a lot of vendors just make it so darn hard. Our survey showed an overwhelming interest in having stock media licensing that is clear, easy to understand, and explicit about how you can and can’t use the content you’ve downloaded.

Since Storyblocks updated and simplified our licensing terms in 2017, we’ve had some of the least restrictive terms in the stock business. (No really, check out our individual license and then compare it to some of our competitors). The reason we’re able to keep our license agreements so lean is we think about licensing differently. We’ve put together this video to show you how we’re different, and also to explain the unique benefits between our two tiers of licensing: Individual and Business.

To break it down for you in writing, here’s the view from 10,000 feet:

You can license all of our content with one of two license options: Individual or Business.

Our Individual license:

  • Is written to an individual person
  • Is royalty-free
  • Allows for unlimited distribution, with zero restrictions on geography or project format
  • Comes with a legal guarantee of up to $20,000

Our Business license:

  • Can be written to an individual person or a business entity (aka company)
  • Is royalty-free
  • Allows for unlimited distribution, with zero restrictions on geography or project format
  • Comes with a legal guarantee of up to $1,000,000
  • Puts no restrictions on production budget

Interested in a Business license?

Our Individual license comes standard with most of our plans. If you’re interested in upgrading to a Business license, you’ll need to contact our sales team to get set up. So go ahead and reach out! We’re friendly, I promise.
