Editorial to Commercial Upgrade

When licensing media, the content you choose from can be cleared for either Editorial or Commercial usage.

Commercial use indicates that the content should be used for your own (or your clients or companys) benefit, such as advertising, promotional, or merchandising uses.

Editorial use implies non-advertising use in published articles, non-commercial films or
documentaries, news reports, or textbooks. Such as, content that is newsworthy or of general public interest and not cleared for advertising, promotional, merchandising or any other commercial uses. A good guideline is that using the asset for illustrative or educational purposes is likely editorial use.

However, if the content you have chosen does not suit the needs of your production there may be an option to upgrade it to the usage you need.

We offer two types of clearances for Editorial content, Commercial Use without 3rd Party Indemnification and Commercial Use with 3rd Party Indemnification.

Option 1: Commercial Use without 3rd Party Indemnification
This license waives the Commercial use of Editorial restriction in our standard Content License Agreement. The cost of this license is the clip price + $750 USD.

Option 2: Commercial Use with 3rd Party Indemnification

This license waives the Commercial use of Editorial restriction in our standard Content License Agreement as well as offers indemnification for any 3rd parties (people, places, or things) included in the clip. The cost of this is usually upwards of clip price + $2,500 USD; however, the final quote will be contingent on the information provided below.

What do prices mean at P5 ?

In this year i had one 4k video was sold with a premium license, for which the customer would normally have had to pay $50 + $299.
I got $27,20.

For customers the P5 upgrade could be an advantage, but i'm afraid not for contributors.

As I understand it, pond5 is ready to violate the rights of third parties and pay money for it in the courts. This is something new. And Pond5 offers this openly.
I'm thinking, let's say Coca Cola is written on the video, I think 2500 dollars pond5 will not be enough to pay the claim.

Really? The $299 goes 100% to Pond5?
Wow, that is bad!
