Stocksy's collection is 100% exclusive. Exclusivity is part of our brand identity; clients love that they don't see our content on every site. But it's not just a marketing tool; it's something we contractually promise. It's critically important that each member takes care when contributing to multiple agencies so we maintain trust with our clients.
You can find the full legal text in our Supply Agreement, but here's what it means in non-lawyer speak:
You're free to work with other agencies, but content that appears on Stocksy and anything that would reasonably be considered part of the same series (including photos and videos from the same series) may not be licensed elsewhere.
What does Stocksy consider similar content?
We determine related content case-by-case by looking at common factors such as models, wardrobe, location, and concepts. If you're worried about any of your sets, please don't hesitate to contact Support with specific examples.
What if I created the content on different days?
We recommend that you keep as many factors as different as possible when splitting content between Stocksy and another agency. For example, suppose you create photos or videos of the same model in the same clothes riding the same bike in the same location on two different days. In that case, we may consider this Related Content, while the same model in another place doing another activity could be acceptable. Again, please reach out to Support with any concerns.
