Shutterstock Supports Launch of Stockphotorights.com

Founding partnership in educational site reflects commitment to fair and legal image usage

Shutterstock announced today that it is a founding partner in Stockphotorights.com, an educational resource for image buyers backed by several major stock photo agencies.

Stockphotorights.com was created to educate image buyers regarding the legalities of image usage and to provide information and advice on how to license images with confidence. The site, which launched today, was created in response to a survey of image users that showed many gaps in legal understanding of picture licensing. Stockphotorights.com was built by Getty Images and has the support of leading industry associations PACA Picture Archive Council of America and BAPLA British Association of Picture Libraries and Agencies.

Shutterstocks collaboration with Stockphotorights.com reflects our commitment to ensuring fair and legal image use, said Jon Oringer, founder and CEO of Shutterstock.

Shutterstock provides its customers with legal security and peace of mind by backing every file in its vast library with a 10,000 guarantee. Shutterstock will provide up to 10,000 to cover legal costs and direct damages for claims arising from the use of an image or footage clip licensed through Shutterstock. The guarantee covers key areas of liability, including copyrights, trademarks and rights of privacy and publicity.
