Pictoright issues permission for publication

The Copyright Act stipulates that permission from the creators is required to publish images. They may charge a fee for that permission: after all, image creators must live off the income from their creative work. Apart from a few exceptions, publishers and producers are obliged to trace the creators of the images to ask permission for publication. Pictoright allows them to arrange this properly in advance. There are nearly 100,000 image creators from home and abroad affiliated with us, for whom we issue licenses.
