(Or "licenses", if you prefer).

If an image is sold with an extended licence, I get that it is disabled from further sales on the stocksite that sold it and that you have to purge the image from other stocksites where it is in your port ASAP.

But what about a stocksite that requires notice to delete a file?

Or have I got this completely wrong? It has been known...

Yup, totally wrong. EL sales do not mean you have to take the image down. Just that the buyer gets broader usage terms, like a bigger print run for example. You can normally keep selling the image anywhere you like.

You have it completely wrong  ;D

ELs just extend the uses to which your image can be put.  Selling the rights is a different story.

Thanks. I thought I might have.

I was confused by the DT selling rights option; but I now realise that this is a sale of rights, not a sale of a licence.

Better get clicking those option boxes (again).

Yeah DT's sell the rights thing is confusing, both for us and for buyers.

Yeah. And if you break their T&Cs on the rights sale thingy, they promise to send out an assassination squad (paraphrased).
