Content License Types

All Content available for download from the Collection are Royalty-Free. Royalty-Free means that you can purchase and/or download once to use the file multiple times.

Content that you download will come with either one of two license types: 1) The Standard Royalty-Free license or 2) the Extended license. Read the Content License Agreement for all the details of each license type and the legal information that goes along with it. Below is some basic information that will give you a better understanding of what these license types entail.



Standard License

Content that you download under a Standard royalty-free License may be used by you in applications and media not intended for sale or resale, such as prints, newspapers, editorials, newsletters, online publications, posters, advertising, or other reproductions for personal or promotional use, including commercials, printed materials, product packaging, video presentations, brochures, catalogs, cards, greeting cards, and post cards.

However, Standard License Content cannot be used for resale, re-license, or in any other way unless Salam Stock has given you written permission. Under no circumstances may Standard License Content be rented, sub-licensed, re-sold, or lent to anyone else. Anything that is designed for sale that incorporates Content from the Site is not allowed under the Standard License. Examples of prohibited uses under the Standard License include, but is not limited to, t-shirts for sale, canvas for sale, calendars for sale, post cards for sale, web templates for sale, flash templates for sale, business card templates for sale, or any other type of template designed for sale. Standard License Content may not be used as a part of a logo, trade-mark, trade-name, or business name. Standard License Content may not be used for any pornographic, immoral, defamatory, or libelous in nature. It is also prohibited to make the Standard License Content available on another website for download for free or for sale. Standard License Content may be used in its original form for online editorial use and blog use, though the Content's width on such sites or blogs may not exceed 800 pixels and may only be used on one domain.  A separate License would need to be purchased for use on a different domain. Standard License Content may be used in prints not intended for sale, though the number of copies may not be in excess of 500,000 copies.

In the event that any of the terms in the CLA or the Standard License are contravened, breached, or neglected, you agree to notify the Site and shall invoice you the fees associated with such excess use, and you thereby agree to pay the invoice within 30 days of receipt. The Standard License is effective until terminated. You may terminate your downloaded Content's Standard License by completely destroying and deleting downloaded content, copies, or derivative works, and completely ceasing any use of the downloaded Content.


Extended Licenses

Content purchased with Extended Licenses are essentially the same as Standard Royalty Free licensed content, but give buyers more privileges depending on what level they purchase - so they cost more than Royalty Free files. Extended License types are available for some Content. The amount of extended use made available by Extended Licenses depends upon what type of Extended License is purchased. The types of Extended Licenses are below:

News Wire Service (Small) License - this Extended License type allows you to extend the usage of Standard License Content to use it for editorials, articles and periodicals intended for the purpose of free or for-sale distribution and/or syndication to other news organizations, media outlets, or blogs. Content provided to other such organizations may not exceed 800 pixels wide and/or tall and must provide a photo-credit to Salam Stock beneath the image and a corresponding clickable hyper-link to Salam Stock.

News Wire Service (Original Size) License - this Extended License type allows you to extend the usage of Standard License Content to use it for editorials, articles and periodicals intended for the purpose of free or for-sale distribution and/or syndication to other news organizations, media outlets, or blogs. There are no size restrictions for editorial use of Content purchased with this license. You must provide a photo-credit to Salam Stock beneath the image and a corresponding clickable hyper-link to Salam Stock.

Unlimited Multi-Seat License - this Extended License type allows you to extend the usage of Standard Licensed Content to any number of persons with your organization or company that holds an account with the Site.

Unlimited Print/Web Reproductions License - this Extended License type extends the Standard License to an unlimited amount of printed copies, or showcasing an image on one's own organizational website at any size and any number of times.

Items for Resale (Limited run) License - this Extended License type allows one (1) user the right to use the Content in posters, t-shirts, games, toys, greeting cards, mugs, mouse-pads, calendars, artwork that is designed and meant to be sold, not to exceed 10,000 such copies or items. As an example, this means that if 10,000 individuals buy your poster you would be required to purchase another "Items for Resale" Extended License in order to continue to sell your poster.

Electronic Items for Resale (Limited run) License - this Extended License type allows one (1) user the right to utilize Content for use in HTML Web templates, WordPress templates, or Electronic Business Card templates that are designed and meant to be sold, not to exceed 10,000 copies. As an example, this means that if 10,000 users download your web template you would be required to purchase another Electronic Items for Resale Extended License in order to continue to sell that your web template.
