This is another licensing term used in the stock photo business that restricts the use of a photo with very clear terms and conditions but provides the buyer with more exclusive use of the photo. Rights managed photos provide the buyer with exclusive rights to a photo for a period of time and for a set amount of copies. This option guarantees the buyer that this photo will not show up on every blog, on every website or in digital media making their use look mainstream instead of a photo that could set their business apart from others.
