What restrictions do you apply when selling travel photos as RM? Do you let only editorial usage or also other kind of usages?

The problem is that often I'm in doubt and I don't know what to do if there is a non recognizable person, a vehicle, a modern building or anything similar in the picture.
When I'm in doubt I always allow only editorial usage, but maybe I can set less restrictions that I don't know of.

What you usually do?

No restrictions, buyer is responsible for knowing how they can use the image when buying from Alamy

Really? Is it not up to the contributor choose restriction?? So why Alamy let us choose them?

People famously get into terrible messes when choosing restrictions. So long as you say your image needs releases but you don't have them, it's up to the buyer. And the buyer might take a slight risk, e.g. if they were producing a travel brochure, they might decide that a restaurant is unlikely to successfully sue them if a photo of their frontage was used in their brochure.
