Image Source's Easy Rights. Image Source, a European producer of royalty-free imagery, has announced the launch of an image licensing system called Easy Rights, which "provides unprecedented levels of image exclusivity far more simply than under the traditional rights managed model," according to the company. "The images available under Easy Rights have been specially commissioned and made available for Easy Rights purchase for a limited time period, thereby ensuring the freshness and relevance of the collection. The Easy Rights licensing system allows customers to purchase images with total exclusivity for their chosen territory and time period, which are set in simple blocks. Customers can purchase images instantly online at www.imagesource.com in a straightforward procedure — guaranteeing that during the licensed period, the image is not being used at all commercially in the licensed territory."
"Customers have frequently mentioned their frustrations with the complexities of purchasing images under current rights managed systems, while also feeling that this system did not guarantee them the exclusivity they needed." says Christina Vaughan, founder/CEO of Image Source. "We wanted to address this with Easy Rights — a license based on the absolute simplicity of the royalty-free model, but where each image is also completely new and totally exclusive within the chosen territory."
