Licence and usage

Editorial use
Editorial use is when you use an image to support or illustrate a newspaper article or informative story. If a photo is marked for editorial use only, it cannot be used for commercial purposes. In general, it's legal to publish photographs from people in a public space without consent, whereas photographs in a private space requires consent. However, always bear in mind that it is your responsibility that a photo is not used in a wrong or negative context.

Commercial use
Commercial use is when an image is used to promote or endorse something, sell a product or raise money for a cause. Common commercial uses include the use of an image on a billboard, a website, a blog, a brochure, a Facebook ad or even a television commercial. In order to use an image commercially, a release will need to be signed by any (identifiable) person(s) in the image and the owner of a recognizable property or brand in the image. For each photo it is indicated whether the photographer has obtained a signed model or property release. In that case, the person(s) portrayed or owner of a property or brand have given permission for use in a commercial context. If consent has been granted, you can purchase the image and do not need to ask any further advice.

Please note: if consent has not been obtained, the photo may not be used for commercial purposes.
