Of course you can do everything with your songs beside of registering them at PRO. You can sell your content as Rights Menaged, but you can not sell by other Royalty Free site even yours.

hey, it's not a stupid question! As far as I understood, you are free to use your own iStock track for (example) a promotional vid of yourself/your company. But I don't know how it could work if you mean "using your track for a vid to be sold to a client of yours". Obviously, these words of mine are unofficial infos, and I could be wrong, or even drunk...
So I'm interested too in the answer. Thx for pointing this out, Filippo.

Thanks Fx and Piccadilly,


in this specific case i want to use one of my tracks to editing a video backstage about a project for client(a behind the scene): so it has a commercial use only for my company. And it cound be a promotional vid for of myself/my company.


BUT


But i belive i need to create a new account for my company to buy this track because (what i'm telling you is not simple to traslate in english) my company is a srl society (LTD in english) so, although it's mine, it's also another business reality respect me (or a my business but not connect to istock)  So mabye i think i had to buy my self!!! i hope to be not too expansive

mmm.. imho what you say does make sense Bobforma (according to "common sense")
but I think the last word on this matter should be our admins one. Let's wait and see what they tell us

If it's for your own personal projects then yes you can use it. If it's for commercial purposes you would need to buy it, for the license, and invariably include the cost in your invoice or company outgoings for tax purposes.
