question on licenses

Peter Van der Klooster


I have a picture sold which was bought by a photo press agency and used (editorial) on a website in The Netherlands (flashscore.nl). In my overview I see the following:

Country: Czech Republic
Usage: Editorial
Media: Editorial website
Industry sector: General business services
Image Size: Any size
Start: 01 December 2022
Duration: In perpetuity Czech Republic,Editorial website


Do I understand correctly that the customer, who is a re-seller, has only bought a license for the Czech Republic and not global? If this is correct, how can it be re-sold to be used on a website in The Netherlands?


Thanks for clearing this. Kind regards

Welcome to the single market. A print territory can be exclusive, but I wouldn't expect this to apply to URLs. I believe anyone can own a national TLD, only .eu is restricted to EU citizens and of course a website can be accessed from anywhere.

I think your net revenue statement will show the territory as EU. I've certainly never had one that specified a member state. I assume it's a hangover from the days of print.
