You have sublicensed images, graphics or videos to a social media network without permission, deleted copyrighted copyright information in the IPTC metadata, or an incorrect competitive copyright statement (photo credit) stored in the IPTC-Metadata or directly on or in the stock medium used, or the image is possibly stolen and thus used unlicensed?
Then we offer you a reasonable solution with re-licensing to eliminate the infringement amicably.
With re-licensing or flatrate-license, we give people who have used our works without the necessary rights of use the opportunity to avoid a legal dispute about your obligation to cease and desist and to claim damages in court.
If you perform to re-licensing the Stockmedia, we agree not to take any legal action for any copyright infringement by you with respect to the specific work that was re-licensed.
You save yourselves thus annoying additional costs, stress and time! It is therefore an advantage for both sides to purchase the re-license or flatrate license.
In addition, you get a extra value with the re-licensing or the flatrate license. In addition to usage rights of a standard license, you receive further extensive rights of an extended license and a social media usage for sublicensing to Facebook, Instagram Twitter etc., as well as the usage of the stock photos, stock videos or vector graphics in a company logo. The stock media is also available to you in full resolution and is not limited to a specific size. Remember, you didn't have these rights before.
The Re-license costs 350,-€* and the Flatrate license 250,-€* at the regular price without credits. The re-license is a lump sum calculated by us for you, consisting of damages, documentation costs and interest (since the beginning of the infringement).
If you re-license with a credit package for 350,-€*, you get 200 credits extra! The credit package contains 550 credits. So after re-licensing for 350 credits you still have 200 credits left, which you can use for new image purchases and at the same time use the stock medium legally secure for your media projects. We would like to emphasize again that you re-licensing via credits is an offer from us and we want to reach an amicable agreement for both sides. Please keep in mind that the offer of re-licensing via credits is possible for a maximum of 3 images that have been objected to and that you will then have only 150 credits left with a credit package of 1200 credits. For more than 3 images please contact us for an individual offer for a solution. Furthermore, a re-license via credits is only possible with a member account. A re-license via credits without a member account is not possible and makes no sense.

After reviewing the overall facts with our legal team, we would determine whether it is necessary and reasonable to enforce our further legal interests, as well as copyright claims, e.g. with a written warning and instruct our legal team.
But who wants that, so why argue and create more additional costs?
When the way to a solution can be so simple. In case of a written warning, e.g. by our specialized lawyers for copyright and media law, high additional costs can easily arise, in addition to the costs claimed by your infringement. In addition, you will have to sign a cease-and-desist declaration with which you undertake to refrain from using the stock medium in question in the future. So why not continue to use the stock medium in a legally secure way with a Re-licensing or flatrate license.
After you re-license in our stock agency rcphotostock, the stock media will be available for download in your member account. Download the re-licensed image and delete the old image in or on your website/blog article/newspaper article and replace it with the correct stock media and the original IPTC metadata and exchange it.
