What is Shutterstock's Premier license?

In an effort to ensure that our customers are able to use images, music tracks and stock video clips legally and without future ramifications, we offer several levels of licensing. The strongest license we offer is the Shutterstock Premier license. This type of license was designed with the needs of enterprise clients in mind and allow for customization, ease of downloading and the ability to share assets quickly and easily.
Standard License
Understanding all levels of Shutterstock licensing may help our customers to determine what level of license will work best for their needs. The Standard Shutterstock License is our default option and is offered with all of our basic image packs, our professional (single-seat) and team subscriptions. With this license, purchasers have the rights to unlimited digital use, up to 500,000 uses in print runs such as posters, books and magazines and in out-of-home advertising. If TV, film or online video productions have a budget up to $10,000 USD, purchased files may also be used for unlimited viewers.
Enhanced License
The Enhanced Shutterstock License, on the other hand, can be used an unlimited number of times in all of the previously mentioned categories and can also be used in web or print templates, merchandise and in decoration in a commercial space.
