Images for every kind of project, from $20 to global exclusives. Whatever your budget, we’ve got you covered.

Rights-Managed (RM) Images

With Rights-Managed images you can acquire rights ranging from non-exclusive to a total worldwide buyout.

Pricing of RM images varies, based on a number of factors such as:
  • media in which the RM image will appear
  • size of reproduction
  • prominence of RM image (cover? background? inset?)
  • duration of use (one-time? one year? permanent rights?)
  • quantity of distribution (print run / circulation)
  • frequency of use (e.g. number of advertising insertions)
  • territory of distribution (local? national? international?)
  • degree of exclusivity required

RM Value Bundles

RM Value Bundles give you the option to use an image for various types of media without having to license for each individual use or provide detailed usage information. Our Bundles offer unlimited usage in the territory, industry & time period selected. You do not need to specify either the size of the image or its position. The circulation for the Bundles can be limited or unlimited, in both cases you do not need to specify the circulation of each usage. For limited RM Value Bundles, combined circulations/print runs cannot exceed the purchase rights.

Global Rights Protection SystemTM

Exclusivity: it’s what our rights-managed photography is all about. Keeping the images your clients use out of the campaigns of the competition is a valuable service you can offer, thanks to Masterfile’s air-tight rights control system. We can tell you where and how an image has been used, no matter how often it’s been licensed.

How it works

When you license an RM image from Masterfile - even for non-exclusive use - we check its history (as well as similar images from the same shoot). If there is a potential conflict, we’ll advise you and you can select a different image.

Choose your level of exclusivity

You can acquire exclusive rights for a specific trade, territory, media and/or time period. You can even negotiate a complete buyout of an RM image, if that’s what you need.

For more information about rights control, call 1-800-387-9010 or 416-929-3000 to speak to an Account Executive or contact us at info@masterfile.com.
