An extended license for royalty free media is required for any usage basing on the media itself. This is true for any product which is a product because of the used media, as the production of goods like calendars, photo-books, posters, t-shirts, mugs etc. An extended license is available for original sized media only and is calculated for most media by a factor of 1.75 of the standard license price. Under no circumstances media may be transferred to third parties, resold and sublicensed. If you are unsure which license you need for a special purpose, do not hesitate to call or write us. We are there to help you.

Important factors are whether the intended use is private or commercial, issued in online media or print media, for editorial or advertising. Basically, the individual price bases on the recommendations of the SAB, the Swiss Association of Photo Agencies and Archives. The book of price recommendations can be ordered at www.sab-photo.ch.
Rights managed media may be used within the specific and individual demands agreed on.
A copyright notice is required for any editorial usage. Whenever the licensed medium is used in any context of information or coverage a well visible copyright notice is required.
