What You Need to Know About Our Licensing Updates


Welcome to our new and improved license! We’re adding benefits and clarifying certain terms that pertain to members like you. For example, our licenses now apply to all three media types—video, graphics, and audio—bringing consistency to our family of products. We also defined what a “seat” means—it describes a person, not a company. Here is a summary of the other updates to our licensing terms:

No more derivative work requirement

Members no longer need to make substantive changes to our content in order to reproduce it. Every item in our Member Library can be shared in its original form, with only minimal restrictions. See the full license for details.

Increased indemnification

We’ve got you covered—we now offer up to $20,000 in coverage under our Standard license versus a previous $1,000. This puts us ahead of the industry standard for indemnification.

Digital distribution

Unlimited! No matter your membership level, your subscription includes limitless digital distribution rights, such as publishing to YouTube and blog platforms. On top of that, every creative asset you download from the Member Library is yours to keep and use forever.

Introducing Enterprise

If you want greater distribution options, we have good news! We’re now offering an Enterprise license. With Enterprise, your company receives multiple user seats, and can get up to $1,000,000 in indemnification. Request a demo to learn more.
