We know, right? Some of the things we cannot accept due to legal risk seem downright ridiculous--but it’s the law. A large part of what we do involves an assessment of risk. Even though we might well stand a good chance of defending a particular claim, the time, cost and hassle involved in litigation will always make it worth avoiding (and, as a co-op, we don’t want a legal case to take money away from our contributors). So, if a brand, company, or group of people is known for being litigious (however nonsensical that might seem), we must do what is necessary to avoid being sued. Where other agencies may be able and willing to take on risk, Stocksy may not be able to given our smaller size and budget.
