Rights managed in perpetuity - very low fee

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have had a rights managed photo recently sold for a fee of $ 3.79 in perpetuity. I am curious what this means in practcie as previously it has sold for a short period of time for a similar editorial use for a higher amount. I am assuming that with in perpetuity I don't get any royalties and so will not be able to sell the picture again? Specifically it stated: 


Usage: Editorial, Online only, single article, to be published across web, online video and private TV, any size, in perpetuity, includes in context third party syndication rights
Media: Editorial website
Start: 22 September 2022
Duration: In perpetuity


Many thanks!

The original buyer can use it forever but it can still be sold to others. That is my understanding.

and usage should follow the other conditions of licence. I just had one listing "single-placement- e-learning website&Social media", so added to my tracking list, and will refer to infringement team if i see any evidence of breach. 


though in my case i could only dream of a $3.79 licence.  not one tenth of that
