Rights and clearances frequently asked questions

When would you need this service?

If you have a commercial project and the content you've licensed from Alamy contains a recognisable person, a trademarked property, copyrighted artwork or any other content that is not “model or property released", then you would need to get the rights cleared in order to use the image for your commercial project.

What is meant by ‘commercial use’ or ‘editorial' use’?

Commercial use means that an image or clip is used to sell a product, promote something or raise money for a cause. This includes use in advertising, marketing, promotion, packaging, advertorials and consumer or merchandising products. Editorial use is when an image or clip is used to illustrate a newsworthy article, a critique or an educational text.
