ImageSpan LicenseStream Update

As promised, we dove a little deeper into a very interesting development at the joint PMA/WEVA event. ImageSpan's LicenseStream has not yet finalized their pricing, but it looks like it will be lower than the $99 stated in the intial press release. This annual fee will allow you to upload 2 GBs of content to license among its users. The real magic of LicenseStream is that it uses useplus.org to manage the licensing definitions so the LicenseStream can provide creative professionals industry standard licensing terms with competitive pricing–pricing that appears to be much more lucrative than istockphoto.com. It will take some time, however, to see if LicenseStream can compete with less expensive alternatives. Their low 5% take of the license and Google image search capability might be what a new online licensing community needs to get the ball rolling. We'll wait and see what develops.
