Fees for Infringed Images

Fees for stock photos vary greatly depending on whether the image is royalty-free (RF) or rights-managed (RM). RF images are generally priced based on the physical file size of the image. RM images are priced by how an image is used. Learn more about the difference.

For RF images, fees are $1,000 per image and include your continued use of the image.

Retroactive fees for RM images are calculated based on the length of time the image has been used and where it appeared. You must stop using the image unless you’re willing to pay for an additional license. See the fee schedule below for more information.
