Licensing and Legal guide

We understand how complicated licensing can be. This guide was written to address most of the common questions regarding licensing, and to better help you decide which license is best for your project.  



Royalty Free



All our videos generally fall under a Royalty Free license.  What does this mean for you?  It means that there is no percentage of any sales of your commercial project due to brollstock.  


Editorial Only



These type of clips are generally event driven in nature.  They are most useful in augmenting editorial videos such as news, documentaries and other types of reporting.  These videos due to their more raw nature, their candidness and due to filming laws (which can vary by country), generally cannot be used for marketing or advertisement purposes and other commercial ventures.


Guidelines for usage
