What are individual rights?

Individual rights are rights that can, in principle, be collected one-on-one between the creator and the user. The maker gives the person who wants to depict his work permission - a license - for use and may charge a fee for this. Image makers who work on commission, such as photographers, designers or illustrators, usually arrange their individual rights directly with their client.

Autonomous artists, art photographers or architects usually do not make direct agreements with those who publish their work. They can outsource the management of their individual copyrights to Pictoright. Pictoright keeps track of what appears where, arranges licenses, and collects the fees for the rights holders.
