How long is my license valid?
Does the license end if my ticket expires?
Any file that is downloaded with an active ticket can be used in perpetuity - meaning we will never ask for additional fees in the future or that your production be removed from circulation even after the ticket expires. Once you download files with a ticket it's licensed to use forever - period.
Does my license cover a friend or a client who hires me for a project?
Yes! If you help a friend or If you are hired to produce for a client, for their personal or commercial use, your license covers that usage.
Does my license cover my employees/collaborators?
If a business entity subscribes, then any of the employees may access and use the production in the company’s projects. If an individual employee or contractor is working on a private project outside of the company they would need to have their own license.
Is the content royalty-free?
Yes. An Universiv Media subscriber and their clients can use the content royalty-free.
On which platforms can I use the content I license from Universiv?
You can use the content on every platform and medium that exists today as part of a project. Plus our license will cover mediums that haven’t even been invented yet. This means that film, TV, music, virtual reality, video games, mobile, etc are all fair game.
Is there an additional cost for use in paid and/or branded advertising?
No! Your ticket covers commercial use.
Can I use the content in any kind of project?
Yes, as long as it does not conflict with defined terms of “proper use”.
What is “proper use”?
Proper use means that we don’t want our productions to appear in projects that advocate violence or incitement, pornography, and obscenity, racism or hatred towards any group. We do not license productions for use in films that encourage discrimination against one person or a group of people based on race, religion, gender, sexual orientation or national origin. Nor do we consent to the use of material in any way that constitutes a threat, harm, invasion of privacy, defamation or any other offensive content.
What is “reasonable use”?
“Reasonable use” is a set of guidelines we use to help prevent the abuse of our site’s resources and to ensure that the content is available to all of our subscribers when they want it. The guidelines also help to prevent the theft or unlicensed use of the content. After downloading 50 files you will see a message asking you to confirm that you are human and not a robot. (We don’t give robots productions.)
After 150 files we ask that you come back the next calendar day if you want to download more.
Do I have access to all of the offers in Universiv Media’s catalog?
Yes! Your subscription plan gives you access to everything we have. The only difference in the plans are the weeks available for active orders.
