iStock has decided to slip on the old leather boxing gloves for you, our deserving customers. Beginning Wednesday, iStockphoto promises that files purchased and used in accordance with the iStock license, will not breach any trademark, copyright or other intellectual property rights or rights of privacy. We’re calling it the iStock Legal Guarantee and if a customer does get a claim, iStock will cover the customer’s legal costs and direct damages to a combined total of $10,000. Here’s the best part: it’s on us. Starting Wednesday, every iStockphoto file automatically comes with a free Legal Guarantee.

If you need a little extra peace of mind, the Extended Legal Guarantee, which increases iStockphoto’s responsibility for your direct damages and expenses to $250,000, will be available for licensing. You can find it right off the file close-up page, the same way you can already get our Extended Licenses.

We are proud of the exacting standards here at HQ and we hope this allows those of you whose companies demand some form of indemnity on images to feel comfortable and confident purchasing from iStock. iStock is thrilled to share our safe, affordable, royalty-free collection with the world.

Cool.

I guess that explains the vigourous culling of older files.

This can only be good news for clients and artists alike.

Not quite. It covers ALL the files, but only those purchased starting tomorrow. Make sense?

Fan-h*cking-tastic.


This is brilliant.  Buyers have piece of mind and more importantly back up.  Great move.  This will hopefully shut up the critics.


How is this news going to be marketed?
