Shutterstock licencing personal versus company/agency accounts, missuse questions.

Recommended Posts

Hi guys can somebody explain properly, the licensing available....sometimes is so convoluted.

Recently I got a call from a media agency in town asking me to provide a MR for a model what came to their offices and start making noise.
I asked them for the license as I had no clue who they are.
The license was from SS but not for an media agency,instead  was for a single person, and they license the photo to a government agency.
I told them , hey you are a media agency with 20 employees , license that photo to the government, but you bought it as a a single user.
That does not sound right at all, everyone is buying for personal use because is cheaper but they are agencies selling for corporate usage.

What is your opinion?
(And this is not the first time.)
