Very often, buying a licence from AP Archive is the end of the licensing process, but depending on how you plan to use our footage, it may be necessary for you to secure additional clearances or permissions from other parties. Examples include using footage containing music and performances, or footage of personalities for advertising and promotional use. These secondary rights are not ours to grant, and they need to be secured from the rights holders themselves.
This can be a time-consuming, and sometimes difficult process. Many customers use clearance companies to do the work for them. Many of these companies exist, but our preferred supplier is All Rights Clearances (ARC). They have excellent knowledge of the issues involved in securing rights and clearances and have an impressive network of contacts to speed the process up and to get good deals for clients. They also have particular knowledge of AP Archive’s content.
Contact ARC for an initial consultation and please mention AP Archive.
