There are currently two types of Licenses available from Demotix. Read or download them below.

General User Licence

This license covers both Editorial and Commercial or 'Creative' usage of imagery. In all cases, imagery is licensed on a use-by-use basis. The fee for using the product is calculated from several factors including type of usage, size, placement, duration of use and geographic distribution. In order to accurately price a license, you will be asked to submit information that will specify the usage rights required. Exclusive rights are available for purchase for some images. All licenses are subject to the Demotix User License Agreement.

Comping and Preview Use

Demotix allows certain electronic imagery files to be used free of charge for a limited duration, if they are used only for personal, non-commercial use and solely for test or sample purposes. Files may be used to take a closer look at a particular image or to create materials for proofing presentations to clients. Comping files are not licensed for use in final projects of any kind, whether for internal or external use. These usage criteria are fully explained in the Demotix Comping Licence.
