Our One Time Use – Commercial License

Our One Time Use – Commercial license expands on our One Time Use license in the following ways:

  • entertainment applications, such as books and book covers, magazines, newspapers, editorials, newsletters, and video, broadcast and theatrical presentations up to an unlimited number of prints;
