What iStock Video License Comes with My Downloads?

Are you considering iStock to be your primary video source? You have made a great choice. iStock is backed by over 15 years of experience. Acquired by Getty Images in 2006, it continues to be on the top of the industry. With millions of high quality clips in its library, you will surely find the perfect video for your creative needs – whatever theme or style.

But, what iStock video license comes with your downloads? First, you should know that videos in the library are not available on subscription. You need credits to start downloading them and credits are purchased from the website as well. The license that comes with all files downloaded from the stock site is a Standard Royalty Free license. It allows you to use the videos in multiple ways as stated in the terms and conditions.

But, it’s not only that!

By purchasing videos with credits, you have the chance to add an Extended License to your clips. Yes, iStock is giving you the opportunity to use their videos in many other ways. So if you are thinking about using the clips in ways not covered in the standard license, you should definitely do this. Here’s what you can do with an Extended License:

  • Unlimited reproduction/print run
  • Multiple users can use the file
  • Create products for resale
  • Increased indemnification up to $250,000 with an Extended Legal Guarantee instead of only $10,000

No matter what type of iStock video license you get, you cannot use the clips in any logo or trademark. You can incorporate them in pornographic, obscene and defamatory context.

iStock provides ready-to-use, high quality videos that are only available through credit packages. You can put them in almost any project you can think off. All content are contributed by artists all around the world and are thoroughly examined to ensure quality.
