Content is king, no doubt about it…

But the road to the final result is stony. It takes me ages to search the content portals for the perfect image. The request for purchase approval is sent to my colleague by email. Then, on the network drive, the asset can only be found by its article number. And wait a minute – what’s the license for that image? By the way, how much of my budget did I already spend this month?

Time, nerves, budget – pushed to the limit!

There should be a better way to do this – right?

News on Enterprise Content Buying

On the trails of a polar bear

License Rights

Once an image is on the Internet, it may well take paths that are as complicated as they are strange. The Hamburg-based agency Die Bildbeschaffer followed the trails of an image that shows a polar bear and was made available via the database of the renowned Alfred Wegener Institute. Now it is being sold as a rights-managed image – without the consent of the photographer. A case study that tells a lot about the care applied when handling image rights.
